Si tienes prisa, date media vuelta porque Ocho es un lugar para disfrutar con calma. Este restaurante creado por Javier y David es un punto de encuentro para todos aquellos que quieran vivir una experiencia gastronómica diferente: pausada, cargada de arte, de aromas…y (por supuesto) acompañada de buenos vinos. Un lugar peculiar con una carta con diferentes temáticas como la parrilla o el picoteo argentino (no te saltes la empanada santiagueña), el pato y su mundo (esa terrina de foie trufado al brandy…), quesolandia o el reino vegetal (¡bravo por su ensalada ‘ocho’!)… Los platos van rotando estacionalmente para sacar el mejor partido a los productos. Y los postres (¡ay, los postres!) son todos caseros, artesanales y auténticos. Y con esto y un bizcocho (o mejor una tarta de zanahoria) hasta mañana en ‘El Ocho’.

INSIDER tip

Las patatas fritas que ponen de acompañamiento son sencillamente brutales: crujientes y cortadas a cuchillo ¡No puedes dejar de probarlas!

    Owners David and Javier have a real passion for the slow food movement so be prepared to linger over delicious food and wine for several hours. While David carefully explains the northern Argentinian menu, Javier sings away in the open kitchen, preparing delicious food such as empanadas and carbonada stew served steaming hot inside the pumpkin. David is very helpful if you are unfamiliar with wine pairings for south american food. All the ingredients for food at Ocho are sourced from local markets and the wine selection is from small-batch unique vineyards.

    Al, thank you for this great review (despite Javier´s singing!). We are so pleased you enjoyed your evening. Safe travels!

    A cosy and welcoming restaurant. We spent four hours in here and at no point did we feel rushed. A fabulous selection of wine and lots of advice on helping you make your perfect selection. The steaks were beautiful and cooked to perfection. The owners go out of their way to make your experience an excellent one. I would 100% recommend you visit this lovely little restaurant if in Malaga, you would not be disappointed.

    Sara, thank you so much for this wonderful review. We really had a fun evening with you both, and are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Ocho.

    Great food, great service. Fortunately we had to wait for our food. It was proof that nothing was pre-cooked. The quality of the empanadas, the chorizo, the morcilla and the "ojo de bife" was remarkable. The same for the service. Javier(the chef) involved himself personally and the touch was very much appreciated. A special thanks to David, the chief waiter. And the wines -all Malbec- were very good. It is not inexpensive (I do not think any one would expect an Argentine restaurnat in Malaga to be so) but the value we received was worth the tab.

    gracias Luis!!! un placer recibirlos!!! hasta pronto ché!!

    Very quiet for a Friday lunchtime, but it was Malaga Feria, so generally people were partying more than eating! David & Javea made us very welcome. The menu is very different, but he who dares! Really good food, freshly cooked, great Malbec wine, appetisers included! A great experience, highly recommend, try it and be adventurous ????
