It's a real experience. Go with friends and treat yourself to at least 6 medium rations and pick a good wine. We always like to let them choose for us, and they never fail to delight. The apple crumble dessert is the best in town.

Make a reservation when you're in Malaga, it's a great dining experience. We went to eat there last week. Good wine, great food, nice atmosphere. We had 6 tapas for two persons + dessert. Price is not too expensive. Worth a visit!
