As anyone can see from my other reviews, I do not write negative reviews. Until Now. And it is too bad, because I used to like this place. Because of where it is located, it was my 'go to' suggestion for people as a convenient...More

Four of us dined here. We had 2 shrimp dishes, a chicken dish and the catfish special. We all loved what we ordered. The leisurely pace of the meal was perfect. Service was efficient and friendly. Can't wait to return. Highly recommend!

Malaga comfortably accommodated 2 dozen family members in its private room for my son's baptism reception. It was family style dining.

Overall, an enjoyable experience. Yummy bread and we loved the paella Valenciana! The empanadas had great flavor but too many onions and in large pieces. The service was exemplary.

Response from Marc A | Reviewed this property |
I'm really not sure if they can. Since gluten free is on everyone's mind these days I'm pretty sure they may be able to accommodate. You should call and ask just to make sure before you make the trip out there.
Is there a parking lot or nearby street parking? Is street parking free?
