Lovely restaurant that gave good veggie gluten free options, other places in Malaga offer 'sin gluten' but often these are meat dishes, so nice to find this little gem right near the castle and ancient ruins. Staff very friendly.

Had a fabulous meal here recently. Lots of choice from meat and fish dishes to potato wedges and coleslaw. Plenty to choose from. Other half (non coeliac) had pizza. Totally trustworthy so enjoy whatever your tastes!

More of a choice than the usual same tapas that every bar offers, great for vegetarians and had vegan choices too but plenty for meat eaters. A lovely setting over looking the old amphitheater, great wine and great atmosphere. Could not fault this place!

We ran a bill of 82.30 euros and enjoyed none of the dishes we ordered. The plato pescadito was not seasoned! The paella tasted like it came out of a box and the chorizo plancha and Bocado entrecote were generic. Nothing outstanding about the restaurant...More

This place was my favourite during our stay in Malaga, Spain. I had the vegan vegetable burger, the others had the Mexican and Salad. All three meals were so good. Thoroughly enjoyed the taste of the variety on my plate. Reasonably priced as well.
