Two lovely Malagan ladies out for lunch suggested this lovely restaurant. In the back streets away from tourists, it was packed with locals. Very friendly, had very fresh jamón and artichokes, followed by excellent juicy baby goat which was delicious. Would definitely return...

We had house specialty of artichoke with Iberian ham followed by the roast goat. Both were absolutely amazing. Love this place and can only say go and try. Very unassuming from the outside but full of locals and tourists inside. Fabulous.

This was our favorite tapas stop in Malaga. The albondigas, artichoke, and other tapas were out of this world. Order tinto de verano instead of sangria to fit in (Tinto is red wine and lemon soda and what the locals drink). Get there early because...More
