Great food in this place. Ox tail was very tender. Mouscat wine was lovely too. Pints of beer are smaller than usual, but i think it is the same everywhere in Spain

Super place to visit. They do good value lunches and it is a great place to watch the world go by in the late evening. The staff are very professional, helpful and patient

All of the guides highly recommend this place and there is no doubt why. The restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere with friendly servers. The tapas was great tasting and there is a decent wine selection to choose from.

We ordered tapas, didn’t get all our dishes, and the once we got weren’t really tasty either. The calamares where super oily, and soft, and not crispy at all. And the sangria wasn’t impressive either. The bocadillo was ok. What I did like tho; was...More

The terrace outside has a nice view of Roman ruins; its lively. Go for a drink, sweet wine and the atmosphere rather than food as tapas elsewhere were much better.

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.
