We stopped in to try a few tapas because the price was reasonable and it got good reviews on site. It did not disappoint.

This restaurant looks like a ceramic shop from the outside, because it is. But don't get fooled and walk to the end of the entrance corridor to discover a lovely little restaurant that serves authentic and delicious tapas. The "chorizo al infierno" which you cook yourself over a tiny pig-shaped grill is amazing. So is the "pulpada", octopus in vegetables,... More

In my opinion this is the best breakfast place in Málaga. It can be a wait for a seat sometimes but well worth it.

This place is definitely overrated. We had tapas far better than here in many other bars/restaurants. The ambiance however may be worth a visit for some. Friendly waitress too. Due to the high rating on TripAdvisor it is full of tourists.

The food was very delicious, we have picked couple of different dishes with my friends so we can taste more. I definitely recommend this place to visit whether for their... More

This is an odd little place, tucked away in a side street, through a small bric-a-brac store. We had the tapas. The waiter was efficient and we had the chorizo which you cook yourself. Tasted beautiful. We also had the octopus and the sausage meat. Only disappointment was the olives as they weren't the freshest. Good little find.
