I had a wonderful steak for dinner, but the very busy waiter spilled my wine glass ( luckily onto himself and not me) and didn't even present an excuse. I got a new glass of wine, though, but without anyone saying a word.

Cheap and tasty lunch with specific food from the region. A place recommended to us by our host in Malaga. Quit a rustic restaurant.

Our hotel owner at La Siesta round the corner from here said it was a nice local place and so it proved to be - not touristy and with seating at the bar, an outside seating area and an upstairs when it's busy. There's a good range of Tapas - not expensive and freshly cooked - and nice wine too... More

I have walked past here a number of times over the years and last night after a disastrous visit to La Campana, we came here. The food here is of a family cooking style, very traditional feel to it. The pulpito is fantastic, as were the habas con jamon, caracoles and the albondigas. To be honest, all the tapas looked... More

Recommended by the hotel staff it was real rustic Spanish cooking. Lovely flavours in a rally friendly atmosphere... definitely a locals place and off the tourist trail. Croquettes lovely, and princess or filled peppers tasty. Would highly recommend... no English menu.. So go with the waiters choice... isn't that what holidays are for 😄

This restaurant gives out-of-town visitors a more authentic type of eating experience. The waiter we had did not speak any English but with our limited grasp of Spanish we were able to communicate our wishes to him. The food was fresh, tasty and the amounts were generous. The pork tenderloin brochette melted in your mouth and the fried shrimp were... More

great place to go for a quick tapa and a beer. you can see all the tapas on display. There is also a menu and i would recommend the whole suckling pig ( you have to pre-order) it is amazing, they bring the whole piglet to the table. it is divine!

The pulpito, €6 was amazing, so tender and tasty, on a bed of garlic potatoes. The €2 chorizo was smoky and beautifully crisp from the BBQ, the pulpito had been so good another had to be ordered and it was finished off with a plate of beans and ham. Left with a great taste in my mouth and will try... More

It is all about the classics here, seems like the menu had not changed much since they opened in 71, but I liked that realness and consistency the we tasted and saw.
