Pimpi's strength is the atmosphere. The food is good, but not the main attraction. I did love the orange olive oil sorbet, and the boquerones were fab, but the Japanese fusion kitchen is not working. No. Three stars for good food, great service in a...More

Very cosy and retro decoration, travels you to Malaga of 18th century. Excellent service, but rather poor dishes, typically touristic... Try their own rose sweet wine: its magnificent!

This emblematic wine cellar built in an old house from the 18th century is a meeting place for people of all ages. It has welcomed many generations of artists, flamenco dancers or politicians. It is named after formerly popular city figures called 'los pimpis', young people who had helped ship crews or passengers and had become the first city guides. It is furnished in the style of Malaga, and offers local wines and delicious gastronomy which is very popular in the city. The soul of the restaurant is the lounge with the vintage wine barrels, signed by famous people, such as the family Picasso, the painter Barcelo, the bullfighter Cordobes, The Duchess of Alba, Carmen Thyssen and Antonio Banderas, who show the historical value of this place. This establisment is in the old town of Malaga, next to the Museum Picasso, La Alcazaba (the Citadel of Malaga) and the Roman Theatre.
