Esta entrañable taberna se ha convertido en el punto de referencia para ir de tapas en Málaga. A sus dueños, Gabriel y Romina (dos argentinos que se enamoraron de la ciudad), no les ha ido nada mal. Primero llegó el Tapeo Cervantes, luego el Mesón, después la Vinatería y, por último, la Taberna donde sirven tapas y platillos que van desde los más tradicionales hasta los más creativos. Su tapa de morcilla con batata y huevo de codorniz hay que pedirla sí o sí. Al igual que la carrillada de cerdo estofada o el atún rojo a la plancha. ¡De diez!

INSIDER tip

Si quieres probar muchas tapas, mejor pide medias raciones. Eso sí, la presa ibérica es imprescindible.

Had a wonderful experience at Taberna de Cervantes last night. Food was excellent. Pork cheeks, entrecote from Argentina., pimentos de padron, octopus were all great. Place is busy, reservation recomended although they have other restaurants nearby, also great, where you can go. Very good service, nice atmosphere and owners are there and keep a friendly and watchful eye to ensure a great time.. Highly recommended.

This was the third of the tapas restaurants we visited on our short break in malaga,duly arrived to an already very busy restaurant,waiting time even to get the waiter's attention was simply too long,they basically could not cope with the numbers of people in relation to staff,ordered 4 tapas dishes only 3 appeared had to remind staff we we missing one.food was OK but was better in the other two.overall I couldn't recommend on my personal experience,I'm sure if the restaurant had been quieter the service would have been better.
Restaurant
Dear customer, we apologize for the delay in the service, we will consider your opinion to continue improving. thank you.

Fantastic meal with friends for a 60th birthday party. However I would caution new customers to set a budget beforehand. On arrival it was suggested that instead of placing individual orders that we were supplied with a wide selection of plates to share to which we agreed. We were also offered wine which was then place on our table. On checking I found out that the wine was &5 euros per bottle. I then rejected this and we were then served with alternatives. The total bill was around 1900 euros which was certainly more than we had budgeted for, as we had expected around 50 euros per person including drinks. However I concede that we should have checked this before we agreed to them just serving us with an endless supply of food and drink which we didn't necessarily need. Otherwise the venue and food was fantastic.

Very good food quality, but the portions are rather small, especially baked potatos was very small portion for 8 euros. Service seemed nice but they forgot about two dishes which we had to wait for 45 minutes.
