    This genius restaurant fulfilled all our expectations. The stuff, especially Yoli and her collegue, were superfriendly. The food a dream. They litterally have the best Tapas in town and for sure the best chocolate brownie I ever tried. They surprised me with this dessert for my birthday and made my day even more fantastic. Beide that, great atmosphere.

    Lovely tapas place in Malaga old town. Made to feel very welcome on a quiet evening considering all the problems with Covid. Everything we tried was delicious. Definitely recommend

    The place is very nice and friendly, quality of food average. Plates are well presented but fish was not the freshest. At the end they pushed me to take one more dish of fries shrimps but it could have been better without. Bacalao was very good.

    This was not my first visit. I think we only visit Malaga now so that we can eat here. The food continues to be expertly prepared and served and while the menu is structured with similar meat, fish and vegetable options each time, every visit shows a little change that keeps it flexible and interesting. The service is superb. Friendly, warm and funny. As long as I can get to Malaga I will eat here. Book in advance or be disappointed for ever. Have the octopus, it’s ridiculously good.

    This restaurant is a great find! The staff are so friendly and welcoming. I have been twice before, once with my husband and once with a friend. This time, I came with 3 friends and we had the best time - the service was great and the food was excellent - my friends loved it! I will be back! We ordered 3 lots of half portions each plus a full portion of Patatas Bravas between us - everything was simply delicious! We also managed to squeeze in 3 delicious desserts between the 4 of us. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

    A really nice and cosy tapas restaurant with a great atmosphere. The service is friendly and professional and we had a wonderful dinner there. The food is authentic, flavorful and delicious. We shared 5 x 1/2 portions between two people and that was a good amount for us to try some different things, but unfortunately we couldn’t squeeze in desserts. Next time

    We love this place. The welcome is outstanding. The food is the yummiest and the atmosphere always buzzing. Loved the complementary cava too! The staff are always fun. We visit about 5 times a year and always try to have this restaurant as our last night.

    Not the first time we’ve eaten here, so a little biased. Delicious food & wine plus my preferred service (attentive not sickly). Was surprised how busy it was for a Monday night, and lots more tourists than previously. A great night all the same x
