I was told to go by a friend who spends a great deal of time in Málaga. I said I wanted meat and this was his first choice. It wasn't busy as it was early for Spanish standards (9pm) but it did not disappoint. We had chuleta steak all 650 grand cooked to perfection. The chorizo appetizer was awesome as was the baked potato. Sadly had it been lunch I definitely would have had the lamb or the roast pig. I will be back.

On an aside Cecilia la camarera morena was more than attentive and very sweet. She did say that when it gets very busy (and it does) she doesn't have the time to take care of the clients which I can certainly understand from her very pleasant and happy demeanor.

Thumbs up. Awesome and very reasonable price.

Wow awesome place.. Just my type. Understated, filled with locals and not a touristy place. Plenty of ambiance.

Meat awesome as the chorizo and the potatoes. It was night time if not I would have tried the lamb.

Highly recommended.

We ate tomato salad, two sausages, huge potato and a lamb leg. There was enough for 2 persons for 2 meals. Black sausage and lamb (?) sausage were both delicious. The grilled lamb leg was very soft, so soft that I didn't need a knive.

The food at this place was incredible! I would definitely recommend this place to those looking for a genuine Spanish experience. It's not in the nicest area of Málaga, not all that easy to find and it would probably pay to go with a local.
My pork was underdone for my liking at first but that wasn't a problem as they offered to cook it for a bit longer.
Be warned however, several entrees of Jamón, Salchichón, Lomo, Chorizo and Manchego cheese, bread and Migas followed by steak and a few beers on an otherwise empty stomach is heavy and it took a couple days to recover...
