We were in Malaga for 5 nights, 6 days and ate here 4 evenings and 1 lunch, each time the food and service was excellent, favourite being the Paella (freshly cooked) and the pork cheeks. The choice is excellent for all tastes, average cost of main course €12/€17, bottle of wine €14. Gets quite busy later on and closed on... More

Me and my partner visited for lunch without any expectations, and was revarded with a great experience. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, our lunch was very tasty, and the price was absolutely value for money! (Including a tasty digestivo on the house)

Busy place on the main touristic lane from the Cathedral. Fresh and tasty octopus salad with a little but pleasant onion kick. Delicious cheese from La Mancha. All in all quite good although the ambient and service leaves you with some mixed feelings: bread which in other places is complimentary here emerges on your bill, problems with communication in English...

We had a conference in Malaga, Spain and this restaurant was pre-booked for our group. The menu chosen was excellent! The food kept coming and by the 4th dish, we could hardly eat any of it; we had filled up on the previous dishes which were delicious! The food presentation was very creative as well. The servers were very efficient... More

Strachans is a great place with local Malaga selections, expertly prepared and elegantly presented. Presentation and preparation were excellent, and this is a moderately priced restaurant. You will find it about halfway up Calle Lorios, then half a block to your right on Calle Strachan at number 5. I had had both the boquerones Fritas ((fried sardines) and anchovies in... More

Chanced upon this place after a restaurant down at the harbour front didn't have two mains one of us tried to order. The staff here were very friendly and there is a good choice of food from tapas to raciones to mains. Nice location right in the heart of this great city. Good value too.

We didnt arrive in Malaga until about 11.30pm. We were welcomed by staff, even though it was late. Staff were friendly. Orders and arrival of food all in good time. Very reasonably priced and one of the best meals, we had on this holiday. Prawns were very good and the paella was exceptional. Drinks were reasonably priced also
