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

We were referred to Strachan by our tour guide in Malaga and we were absolutely delighted with our lunch. While the restaurant appears a wee bit tired and very middle of the road, once you sit down you feel like it is just the right kind of place to enjoy real Spanish food. We started with the wonderful Malaga style... More

We were a group of 30 and had a tastefully decorated spacious room reserved for us. The service was efficient and pleasant, The shared antipasti (tartar of salmon, tomato, mozzarella and Iberian ham, grilled octopus, croquettes) were simply delicious and artfully presented. When in Malaga, Strachan is a great must-go-eat-there place!

The food was OK, service was OK, overall experience was average. Had worse, had better. Won't be going back.
