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.

I really loved the decor and the restaurant furniture so first impressions were... More

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.

Had both lunch & dinner at Citron & the food, service, ambience & vino were superb. The selection within the menu for Gluten free options is second to none with 90% of the dishes gluten free but this does not detract from the flavours or quality of the food. Unfortunately we only had a couple of days in Malaga or... More

I visited with friends while on the look out for a change from tapas. The sign outside promises a modern interior, but we found warm, welcoming colors and wood inside. Nice setting. We read from an English menu, which I suspect caused a bit of a disconnect between the description of the food and the food itself. Both the presentation... More

Called to book on the Saturday night and all was fine! After paying for our taxi to the resteraunt we arrived for our booking to find the waiters stood inside the door shaking their heads at us. No explanation about why they wouldn't allow us in. Never experienced customer service like this. Would not go back

Dear bannie468, we are terribly sorry for what have happened to you and the explanation i can give in this moment is that you came on saturday on the feria and it was so packed of drunk people every where specially outside from the restaurant which makes it absolutely impossible to open the door,but of course we will investigate exactly...
