“Best terrace at Calle Larios”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Excellently situated in the busy shopping street. Plata de carne, mixed grill, is something to look for! Excellent quick service topped with free wifi!

“Simply but a great Find”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

We had 3 hours in Malaga and stumbled across Cafe Central in a lovely square. Service was OK but the food - a plate full of hot meats (chops, sausage, steaks etc) - was delicious and value was excellent. Interesting photos on the wall and lovely authentic Spanish atmosphere throughout.

“Great paella”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

We ate here on a very busy Saturday afternoon for lunch. This was definitely the best paella in Malaga. The location is great and the coffee is wonderful. Many people stop for a coffee after lunch hours.

“Good Location, Great Food”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

On our recent trip to Málaga, The Café Central was where we had breakfast most days. It was never busy whilst we were there and it is located in Plaza Constitucion so is ideal for people watching whilst eating.
Our breakfast of choice was a typical Spanish breakfast of Churros y Chocalate. There are a great selection of coffees too to choose from.
Service was excellent and the friendly waiters were pleased with our attempts at ordering in Spanish.

“Certainly good and not expensive”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

The good thing about this restaurant which is placed right in the middle of Malaga is that if you like to have a hot meal before 8 PM when the spanish start thinking about dinner, the kitchen is open all day. Good cakes too. For the location and quality: very good and not expensive, about 10 euros not including drinks.
