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 […]

Malapizza Pizzeria

For our money, this is by far the best takeaway pizza restaurant in Malaga (it’s a shame they’ve moved from the city centre!) If you’re close to María Zambrano train station, definitely pop in… They have a vast selection of authentic Italian (they would say Sicilian) pizzas, mini calzones, arancini, […]

El Tapeo del Soho

From the outside, El Tapeo del Soho looks like any other generic Spanish tapa restaurant. Inside the kitchen, however, it’s a different story. The menu is a real mix of Spanish and other international dishes, but what really stands out is the Lebanese section. You have to try the fried […]

Terra Mía

They describe themselves as ‘101% Napolitan’ so for that reason alone, you know that the food at Terra Mía is going to be great! Proof of this is that Terra Mia was the winner of the 1st Tutti Pizza Competition organised by local newspaper SUR’s gastronomy supplement, Málaga en la […]
