First the good bits ,my husband had the shoulder of baby lamb which was delicious. I had the hake which came in a gloopy ,tasteless sauce so unless the kitchen was having a meltdown I would advise anyone to avoid . Similarly a pallid fish soup although the vast plate of artichokes with shavings af ham was adequate . Otherwise... More

The food was good if not outstanding. Portions were huge and the service terrific. Good atmosphere so we left happy. Whilst it is a restaurant that has... More

First time visit and will definitely return. Not a tourist trap and mainly locals dining. Starters are large so you may want to share. Swordfish was delicious. The waiter we had was helpful and very pleasant

This place is mostly visited by classy locals. They offer high quality traditional Spanish food. I recommend trying the artichokes with Ibérico ham and the scrambled eggs with cod. Nevertheless, whatever you taste is going to be delicious.

We ordered mixed grill fish. After too much time it comes an extremely small portion not cooked at all. Waiter didn't speak English and the boss said we've waiting too much for changing the dishes .... so what? ? ? I can't really understand how to define this restaurant good or even acceptable ....

We only had a two night stay in Malaga and wanted somewhere that would provide a good seslection of local food and dishes inexpensively and we found it here. We eat both nights at this restaurant, and it was busy on both nights, mainly with Spanish people, which told us it was a good choices. Staff friendly, and good service.

We made a reservation and pointed out the outdoor table we would like . When we returned the friendly waiter showed us to the table. The menu is varied with a good selection of fish and meat. The wine was good. The tuna and tomato dip was unusual and delicious and the crispy bread was great for soaking up the... More

Was well recommended by the Hotel Concierge, however it was totally the opposite. A welcome greeting and we were shown to our table. It took almost 10 minutes to find the English Menus and another 10 for the water that we ordered to arrive. We ordered White Wine Sangria but was given Red Wine Sangria which arrived some 15 minutes... More
