    Pretty greasy food, a bit expensive and touristy. Ok atmosphere.

    Surprisingly enjoyable tortilla, beautiful pulpo, yummy mango dessert.

    Normal price, good food. The service is a bit disappointing. You need to be in noticeable spot or having to call the waiter constantly. I recommend the Solomillo with mustard sauce and the desserts=😋

    Pimpi is fun and frenetic with the best views in Malaga looking longingly onto the Alcazaba and amphitheater. Inside is a maze of tables and nooks to squeeze your tapa and fino into. A must in Malaga!

    This sprawling restaurant has sunny tables overlooking the amphitheater and a labyrinthine interior with many corners to perch your caña and tapas on. Head inside for the best atmosphere.

    Over rated tourist trap ! The food is mediocre . They serve pre- cooked stuff thats why their famous service is too quick. To cut the long story short ; stay away .

    Very bad experience. One of the waiters recommended us some tapas, but they were all very bad. Everything was tasteless. Also the terrace was not cosy at all. Don't go there!

    The place is located in a very central and busy area. They charge 15% on the top of the price list, when you sit outdoor!! The portions are small and absolutely low value for money you pay.

    Outside lunch was amazing. The fried dish with various fish is really good, same as the shrimp mango salad (both pictured). The croquetas were not that good.

    The atmosphere is nice but the food is nothing special. The drinks are nice though so I would recommend to go here after you have eaten.

    Tapas? No tapas inside or outside. You have to get to the other end of the restaurant, on the other side of the street there is a very small but cute tapas bar of theirs.

    Great atmosphere,cozy and interesting interior,nice staff and good food.It will be better to make a reservation for dinner if you want to sit outside.

    The place is OK, but nothing spectacular. We had a hot and fresh meal for a fair price, but there is so many better places.

    By far one of the best tapas bar in town. Yes it is touristic yes it is crowded as hell but YES you should visit. You can't help not loving the atmosphere.

    The serving is really slow even when they are not busy. They call "the tank" to a glass of beer(too pricy for the city and the size). The atun is not fresh. Lot more say. There are better places.

    As previously mentioned it is a place which is popular among tourists, overpriced, especially the meals. Maybe it is good for a glass pf wine but avoid eating unless you are with unlimited budget

    Try the squid in oil with cilantro, the paella during lunch time and the crepe farcie de foie gras, goat cheese and apple. Don't leave without trying their pisco sour!
