Noisy and boisterous and quite irresistible. Very much a family place and very informal, you can order your food but much more fun to wave at whatever passes your table looking good. The waiters make sure to be noticed, they all have strong voices calling...More

We cycled along the promenade from Malaga central and right at the end of the west of el Palo we came across this bustling restaurant. Spoilt for choice and not knowing the scheme we looked at how other people were ordering and paying. You sit...More

Go there for the expirience, which is special. Unfortunately the food is not at the same level as the expirience and the selection is very limited. It was the same, the same and the same. dishes they offered all evening.

It's about 15-20 minutes on the bus! You could walk along the promenade in about 1.5 hours !
