We were not too hungry, as we had travelled that day, however, the special looked interesting and it was, seafood casserole (for 2). It was like a fish broth with fish, shellfish and potatoes. Not too heavy together with a bottle of rioja, came to less than 45 euro. With 2 satisfied customers. We sat at the window on a... More

We walked out after about half an hour of not having our food order taken. We were given a menu as soon as we walked in but other people who came in after us had their orders taken before us. After about 10 minutes the waitress came over to take drinks orders and then she walked off before I had... More

This bar used to be designed in the shape of a boat - staff in the boat, and customers sat around it. Parts of it are still there, as are fish and seafood on the menu! Average prices and reasonable quality...

Had the olives (spicy and delicious), the croquettes (accompanying garlic sauce stole the show), the fried aubergine with honey(strangely appealing) and the shrimps ail pil pil (nice but not generous portion). The food was lovely but rather expensive, we thought, compared to some of the other restaurants nearby.

The waiters here were quite fast and polite but the food was of poor quality. I would not recommend this restaurant since the quality of the food is very poor.

Totally recomend this place! Very nice and smiling staff, delicous food at good prices! More, we took the offer 17,5 euro frittura malaguena for 2 persons and a bottle of white wine and I can tell we had the best quality at the best price! Also, we tried Malaga salad-an intresting mix between code fish, boiled potatoes and oranges-excellent taste!

The atmosphere and décor are interesting. The food typical of the region. Our late lunch was of the region's mixed fried fish which was more typical than excelling.

Had the 5 tapas and 2 drinks offer, the only good bits were the fried fish. The rest were some sad salad options (dry cheese and crackers, 'Russian salad'). Go to La Campana across the road!

It looks like a traditional restaurant so we went inside. The menu confirmed it. We ordered a lot of things from starters till dessert and except one (it wasn't really fesh and the consistency was weird (it was octopus btw)) all of them was really good so I would go there again.

The menu del dia here is excellent value for money. We were seated at the back of the restaurant which was a little darker and quieter but if you want a more lively atmosphere there is seating nearer the door. There seemed to be a lot of locals eating here which is usually a good sign. The lunch menu is... More
