La Despensa de Iñaki

La Despensa de Iñaki is the younger cousin of the legendary Asador Iñaki. This gourmet deli now occupies the premises of the former restaurant which at the time was a sort of improvised street-side dining room. Now, having gained enormous popularity, Asador Iñaki has moved to the parallel Calle Ayala […]

La Tranca

No trip to Malaga would be complete without a stop-off at La Tranca. That’s if you can get in… As you approach it on Calle Carretería, it will quickly become apparent which bar it is – the one that’s packed full, with a waiting queue outside.  Wait your turn and […]

Te-Piko

Te-Piko is a great little bar to hang out at during any part of the day. With an outdoor terrace on the charming Plaza Enrique García-Herrera, this is a great spot to people watch, drink and have a nibble. Come by at breakfast time and tuck into a fresh baguette […]

El Pimpi

No trip to Malaga is complete without a visit to El Pimpi. The restaurant-bodega features in all of the guide books and ‘top 10s’ you can imagine, mostly because it’s a Malaga institution with an unparalleled location (and superb outside terrace with views of the Alcazaba), but also because standards […]

Located in the centre of Malaga, just off Plaza de la Merced, La Peregrina is a great spot for a quick lunch or a light snack. With a conch on its logo, it’s clear that this simple eatery, with a few small tables with bar stools, specialises in fish and […]

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. […]

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 […]
