Visited on Valentines Day on friends recommendation - booked in advance and needed to as fully booked. Brilliant experience all round from recommendations to actual food. Plenty choice of tapas and really good quality. Service was excellent and not rushed at all. Really reasonably priced on top of all this. Already on the list to book next time in Malaga.

We just love this little place, so we bring family and friends, and they are likewise excited. The food is always prime, but we have learned that five tapas serves us better than seven. We usually let the waiter decide what is best, and so far they have never failed. Amazing that it is possible to prepare food at this... More

Went to this restaurant with 3 friends. Booked in advance as I have been able to get in on a previous occasion as it is very busy. An excellent menu with a good additional section from the menu of the day. The food was of an extremely high standard, lots of different dishes to your typical tapas bars. The waiters... More

Amazing seafood tapas! You can ask for 1/2 portion of various tapas and try all of them (it would really help to be in a group with a few people for this :P).

This visit was once again to celebrate our birthdays. The food here is as good as a five star restaurant but tapas size. This means it is possible to enjoy more dishes. The mushrooms, tuna and pork were all delicious. The best birthday meal.

Walking around the streets from our rented abode we stumbled upon this restaurant. It was indeed a welcome venue. Taking advise from our very good waiter, who spoke excellent English, we ended up with a fantastic tapas experience. The venue was very busy and frequented by locals, always a great indication. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We really liked that place, the cook was unbelievable, surely the best quality of dishes and wines as well. As usual, Rafa was extraordinary by his suggestions. He just asked for what we liked, and prepared us the most perfect diner. You must go ! Mélanie & Fuerte Louis

My husband and I discovered this gem while on a weekend trip to Malaga 5 years ago. We weren't even engaged back then and we always talked about going back. During that trip we had dinner there on our first night in Malaga and we liked it so much that we had dinner there every night the rest of that... More
