“The best vegetarian restaurant in Malaga”
Reviewed 15 April 2013 via mobile

The waiter was very friendly and helpful because our Spanish was terrible and he did his best to translate.
Lots of interesting artwork on the walls.
Food was very fresh and interesting, definitely not run of the mill stuff.
Particularly recommend the "crema de maiz y puerra" soup.
Much better than El Piano.

“a delicious surprise!”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

After 10 days travelling around Andalucia finding limited and sometimes frustrating options for a vegan and an omnivore together we were delighted to find El Calafate, on a little pedestrian street near the cathedral in Malaga.
We managed to get a table just before they closed at 4pm on Monday and enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal with cerveza. The hosts were most welcoming and helpful in explaining the menu and vegan options. We enjoyed a tasty lentil dish, spinach & chick peas followed by fresh strawberries. Accompanying salad was equally delicious and very well-presented.
Atmosphere friendly, although it was quiet as nearly closing time and we just managed to squeeze in.

“Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed 23 March 2013 via mobile

Following a late arrival in Malaga, I went out in search of a meal and came upon El Calafate. Although it was nearly closing time, they were very welcoming and accommodating. I'm not a vegetarian, but I thoroughly enjoyed the spinach lasagna and the house red wine.

“Grown-up vegetarian food”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We chose this place because we were spending the weekend in Malaga with vegan friends and wanted to go somewhere and have a decent meal with lots of options rather than, er, well, all you vegans will know the answer to that one! El Calafate didn’t disappoint. At first we were a bit put off by the situation of the restaurant down a side alley north of the Thyssen Museum. Don’t be put off at all. As soon as we entered the welcome was warm and professional. A decent space, nicely decorated and busy for a Saturday lunchtime. Food? Well, I’m not a vegetarian but this is some of the best food I’ve had for quite a while. Of particular note was the roasted red pepper and cashew nut dip – sublime. Charming service and a great lunch. Vegetarians and vegans rejoice!

“It's a real gem!”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

An incredible range of vegetarian and vegan food. Extremely helpful, and also that the waiter was English and could accommodate my problematic dietary requirements. The seitan was perfectly juicy and flavourful, and the vegetables were cooked just as requested. A real find, and I'd encourage anyone, non-veggie too if you want to be converted by perfectly cooked food, to please visit!
