We had a lovely omelette, two glasses of lovely white and two small glasses of Sweet Malaga wine on the house, all for 10€. Best food I had on our trip apart from the food in hospital! Unlike Gibraltar where we were totally ripped off.

The best mixed fried sea food platter we have ever tasted. The dish was for 2 people but it was easy enough for 3. Delicious!

The concierge recommended we have lunch at El Pimpi and we were glad we did. The food was interesting and tasty and the service was very good - we don't speak Spanish so a waitress who spoke English looked after us. The atmosphere of the...More

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.
