Ate dinner here with friends. It was their treat so didn't see whole bill but menu looked pricey for Malaga. Style is weird mix of Spanish and Far East fusion that does not quite work. Service was OK and attentive. It was busy and popular. My starter was so impressive I can't remember. I had a steak for main that... More

Our first time at this restaurant and we had a lovely meal. Food was excellent - beautifully presented and delicious. Very nice house wines at reasonable prices. Friendly, helpful staff. Our last night in Malaga and sad we didn't find this place earlier in the week. We will definitely be back on our next visit. Highly recommended.

We have been to this restaurant before and really enjoyed the food previously but this time while there wasn't anything really wrong it just wasn't that tasty. The tuna tartare was nice but the sauce was a bit sweet, the prawn curry was supposed to be a Thai red curry but was a yellow curry which had far too much... More

Due to a festival blocking the streets and roads we... More

The goatcheese salad was nice, the days special of wok tuna was a bit tasteless, not much spices. My wife had the gamba special with curry, which was great according to her.

As the title says I have been here 3 times now in 2 months and it never disappoints. The service is always spot on and the food is consistently good. You never feel rushed either which could be easy to do in this part of Malaga where there is a demand for customers and a high turnover. I am frequently... More

The restaurant is lovely we have eaten here several times before and always sit outside, it is in the square near the theatre, staff are fabulous nothing is too much trouble, the food is modern with no hint of tapas which can be a refreshing change.

Aligned with the expectation. Nice place, nice food and nice service. Good suggestion from staff; amazing salad good enough for one. Really good flavors combinations and easy to eat. Recommended dish.

Always come here on our infrequent trips to Malaga, always marvelous and fantastarifico, if you know what I mean. One of my favourite ever restaurants. Everything so very very tasty. And the paintings are nice. Had a lunch and a dinner this time, not on the same day, that would be bonkers.
