El Pimpi

Ah, El Pimpi. You cannot get more Málaga than this unmistakable institution; a must-do for anyone in the city. This restaurant and bodega has a varied but carefully-considered selection of the best of Málaga’s dishes, and its terrace with a view on the Alcazaba is definitely a plus. In a […]

Recyclo Bike Café

This quirky café-meets-bike-shop is a big favourite in Málaga. Great for having a casual drink with friends on the terrace, but also popular because of its many vegetarian and vegan menu options. Its wacky interior, with bikes hanging down from the ceiling, is fun and inviting, which possibly explains why the place […]

Las Merchanas

You can’t get much more Málaga than this! With wall-to-wall Semana Santa photos, statues, posters and sculptures, there is certainly no escaping the fact that you’re in Spain. Always packed full with locals, you will struggle to find a seat unless you go at ‘guiri’ time (before 8pm). A great place […]

El Mesón de Cervantes

El Mesón de Cervantes has been serving the city for a number of years now and continues to go from strength to strength, opening a third sell-out restaurant in the centre. Run by an Argentinian family, the menu is geared towards sharing and this is what we strongly recommend. In […]

Raff

The hustle and bustle of this vibrant industrial-style restaurant is perhaps unsurprising considering the free tapas offered with every drink! Simple, almost pub food, of good quality and at reasonable prices: an international menu, with burgers, traditional ‘raciones’ (large sharing plates) and even fried rice or noodles. A great place […]

Los Gatos

Located in the popular Plaza Uncibay, you might not spot it at first through the crowds of people either trying to squeeze in or filling the stools outside. One of the most popular restaurants in the city and for good reason: simple Spanish food done well, whether meat or fish. […]

Plaza de la Merced

  This beautiful square is a must-see for so many different reasons. Firstly, Plaza de la Merced is the birthplace of none other than Pablo Picasso. Málaga’s most famous son was born in the house on the most north-westerly corner, which has now been converted into Casa Natal (birth house) […]
