Reviewed yesterday NEW

we ordered 2-3 tapas which were good to very good, and, the owner suggested this tuna tapas which was amazing (unforgeatable!). the confine space is very unique and cozy and the service/contact with waiters is great!

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 December 2016

We just love this little place, so we bring family and friends, and they are likewise excited. The food is always prime, but we have learned that five tapas serves us better than seven. We usually let the waiter decide what is best, and so far they have never failed. Amazing that it is possible to prepare food at this... More

This place is a very friendly and elegant tapas bar in the center. We ate some kind of tapas on the "La Noche En Blanco" festival. These were very deliciuos. The Ronda Chinchilla red wine was amazing tasty! I recommend you this place!

As expected, food wonderful and melt in the mouth variety. Pity the service was not up to the usual standard. Orders taken with smiles but thereafter surly expressions were everywhere. Not sure why but possibly wanted to close on the dot of 3.30pm, the end of the brief lunchtime session! Maybe it should be longer to enable those ordering at... More

The reviews persuaded us to book for lunch and the initial welcome was friendly. Four tapas were ordered and it was suggested that another might be appropriate. We agreed and were also given advice on the best wine - no, not a bottle, thank you! In fairness, the wine was quite good and not the most expensive. Amongst the dishes... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel receptionist, when we arrived it was very busy and we had to wait for a table but it was definitely worth it. The menu had a wide variety and we had 5 tapas to share and we were both full afterwards. The food was absolutely amazing and could not be faulted. Service was... More

Having eaten at a number of restaurants in Malaga during this stay, we stumbled on this one following a sight seeing trip. Lucky timing got us a table in this lovely, very pleasant bar with fabulous tapas. This place has proved very popular because we went back again and couldn't get a table, so had to book. The food was... More

We read about this place on trip advisor and it got such great reviews that we decided to try it for ourselves. The food was amazing. The plates looked beautiful and tasted absolutely fantastic. In addition, our waiter, Alex, who had lived in the Netherlands, was really friendly, and recommended some great dishes. All in all a great experience. Would... More

Recommended by our hotel, we walked in and were lucky enough to get a table by chance in this buzzing bar. Hilarious meal with incredibly busy and professional waiters, lots to watch, absolutely delicious, fresh and imaginative tapas and everything you could want for.
