“Good, but not excellent!”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

We had dinner in this restaurant while being in Malaga. We were tired of the sightseeing and just came across this restaurant. Although the people are very kind and welcome, this is not the place where many locals would go. In other words, it is an average place (for price and quality), but I would expect more foreigners going there than local people.

“Mixed reviews”
Reviewed 5 March 2013 via mobile

Being in Spain we really fancied a paella, we stopped here because the atmosphere was nice and the waiters were friendly! The service was fantastic! The paella wasn't the best we'd had but it was tasty and there was lots of it! We returned the day after to try the tapas, again the service was fantastic but the food was disappointing. The tapas was greasy and bland.

“Enjoyed our meal”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

Ordered 2 tapas and 2 main meals. The oxtail tapas wasn't large-only one piece of meat-but fell off the bone as it should and was well cooked I had mussels for my main course-they were fine-no sauce just steamed. Had an enjoyable meal and the staff were very friendly and as helpful as they could be, given my limited Spanish and their limited English. It was not busy, we were the only couple in that side of the restaurant. It seems to be split into 2 areas, one area you go down and the other area you go up slightly. This was the side we ate at. There was also seating outside with gas heaters.

“A fun night”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

Good food and great service from Antonio. Have never laughed so much. What was intended as a "quiet night" before flying home became a really great night out thanks to the staff.

“85 cents for bread, is it only for tourist?”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Horrible experience and will never go.

6 tapas for 10 euros deal was so so and when we got the bill we were surprised and puzzles as they charged us bread which was free for other restaurant. Also, beer was expensive. This place looks like the restaurant for tourist who doesn't know this area well. Waiter thinks they never come to Malaga again.
