This was my last meal in Malaga. Had it been my first, it might have wound up as the only place I ate. Ensalada del mar was one of the best salads I've ever had. Everyone there was welcoming and lovely. Total thumbs up.

At Cafe con Libros you can enjoy very good tapas. The service can sometimes be a bit slow because there are a lot of customers, though :) But the tapas are worth it. They also have some good desserts, cakes etc. The atmosphere is relaxed and you can read books during your stay, for example if you happen to be... More

We visited here twice during our short stay in Malaga. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent friendly service. Delicious Sangria. Great to just sit and watch people go by, would definitely recommend. Will be coming back on our next visit.

I became a regular costumer at El Café con Libros in the one week I visited Málaga. The food is always good, it's at a great location and with awesome service. I tried the breakfast, brunch, pancakes and tapas - everything delicious. As a plus it's good price and many gluten-free food to choose from. I'm looking forward visiting the... More

In today’s fast-paced world, places where you can just kick back and relax, chat, read and connect are in danger of extinction. Café Con Libros offers just that: A beautifully decorated café with a wide range of books in many different languages which wait to be read. Or sit on the sunny terrace with its swing chairs and of-the-wall outdoor... More

Good place to work at since there are many seats - tip: stay in the front part of the bar. In the back the reception is not that good. Food and drinks are delicious and good value. The service is nice. The location is pretty central so many people come and go here. But usually there is a place to... More
