Great choice for food and drinks at the northern part of the Plaza de la Merced. Here you can sit watching as life pass by and you enjoy good drinks and what we found to be a decent and tastefull selection of tapas. Both for our palate and our eyes. Service was friendly, although as it was busy it was... More

We did visit Bruselas several times during our visit to Malaga, just for a drink, for breakfast and for tapas. The terrace is very nice, service is friendly and drinks are good. The tapas could be better, more tasty and a little bigger please? No very good is the ladies bathroom, first time no toiletpaper, second time dirty and wet.

We ended up in this cafe as it was raining heavily in Malaga and we wanted to get out of the rain. The tapas are nothing special. What put me off this place completely was that the locals were allowed to smoke in the restaurant, which is against the law in Spain. The service was OK but there are much... More

This bar / café is located a little away from the centre in the Plaza de la Merced. It does attract tourists and there are a number of restaurants and bars lining the square. We went for drinks mid-afternoon and the seating was still in the sun until around 5pm. It’s a great people watching spot, and there were a... More

Tapas:average, I really think they can do better. Service:Average, nice lady at the begginig how ever, she did not know how to explain the main tapas proposed in the menu Location: Good Place: not nice, quite dark and the decoration is average. If you want nice tapas, you can skip this place.

We called in for lunch, initially we were going to stop at the other end of the square, but instead picked this place. The waitress wore a tee shirt saying in bold letters "I don't care" and sure to her word, she certainly didn't gave a care about anything She got the order wrong in just about every way, small...

As we were staying in an apartment a few doors away, this is the first place we tried for breakfast. The service was friendly and efficient on the three occasions we visited and the prices were reasonable. Good quality orange juice, a well-cooked breakfast tostada and a cup of hot, strong coffee for 4 euro. Even the Sixties English pop... More

We both had salmon and tuna salad and had a wonderful meal for our Valentine's Day. We also had a wine and it was ok. The Tapas is nice. It was very good price for everything we ordered.
