Poor service, staff unhelpful, waited 30 minutes for forgotten order while staff chatted. Food poor despite rave reviews. Subsequently found much better places to eat in Malaga.

This was our first restaurant we visited in a Spain. This place has several rooms and was quite busy when we were there. We sat near the Antonio Banderas autographed wine barrel. The food was very good! We had the best croquettes at this restaurant.

The ambiance was nice and animated. That perfectly suited our group after a long day of work. The food and the tapas were very varied and fresh. If you are passing by Malaga, give it a try! 😊

Loads of options on food and loads of areas to sit in both, indoors and out. Also located in the city centre. Fine, fast and attentive service, too. Great spot to have a nice lunch or dinner.

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.
