“Food average except for the cheese cake which was good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012 via mobile

Two waiters serving, one kept on lighting up his cigarette near us and wasn't that friendly compared to the usual service we have had. The food was indifferent apart from the surprisingly good cheesecake .
Close enough to the centre to be bothered by the musicians and beggars. The musicians are good but there are too many to give money to.
Tonight we will dine inside at a different restaurant

“Excellent value/food/service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

€7 for menu of the day. This includes nibbles (olives, pickled garlic) and bread, starter, main course and dessert or coffee. Loads of choice in each course and it's really authentic Spanish cooking. Pleasant waiters and good service. Highly recommended.

“Meson La Aldea, excellent all the way around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

The best food, tapas, cañitas, coffee... I miss my favorite tapas: "Patatas bravas".
Used to be there every afternoon for around two months while studying in Malaga. The best guys, I consider them my friends that I miss and hope to see again.

“Great food and wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

We tried several of the typical Spanish dishes on offer at Meson La Aldea - paella, salads, grilled meat and rice pudding. All were great quality, with fresh ingredients and well balanced flavouring. There's an extensive wine list, with a good choice of very reasonably priced Spanish wines. When our first choice wine was not available, the waiter made a good recommendation which turned out to be an excellent wine.

The two highlights of our evening were the paella (which required a 40 minute wait so we were sure that it was freshly made) and the rice pudding, which was creamy and not over sweet.

Don't be put off by the slightly dingy narrow street in which Meson La Aldea is situated. It is well worth the small detour off the main thoroughfares.
