A walking distance from Malaga Cathedral. Very busy place but they have a capacity of rather polite team to serve you. 5 to 8 minutes waiting time for a table during peak times which we did. The food here is delicious! Good value for money...More

I've been there five or six times in the last three years. Every time I go there the experience is really good. I recommend this place to have dinner at night (after 21:30) because of the atmosphere you'll find

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.
