Great place to eat in Malaga. Quality food at really convenient princes. Everything is fresh and delicious. We had various dishes to share, the favorite being the grilled octopus - it was just perfect. The meat was also cooked perfectly. it is a small place, so make sure to make a prior reservation.

We just love this little place, so we bring family and friends, and they are likewise excited. The food is always prime, but we have learned that five tapas serves us better than seven. We usually let the waiter decide what is best, and so far they have never failed. Amazing that it is possible to prepare food at this... More

After several aborted attempts, we finally had lunch with friends at this up market tapas based restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The four of us shared several tapas from the main & specials menu. Everyone of them delicious. This is chefs tapas not cooks tapas. Generally I'm not keen on croquettes as they come straight from the freezer. Not here... More

I credit Trip with improving the quality of restaurants around the world but occasionally the opposite can happen. I went to this tapas bar three years ago and it was fantastic. Very disappointed on my return to find the cooking average, portions tiny and prices high. During the course of our meal all tourists were welcomed in and all Spanish... More

Excellent little place - the moment you stick your head around the door and ask for a table, you're sold. I was alone and got a tiny place at the bar, but was totally looked after. Excellent staff, English speaking. And then just go for the menu! I've been back!

Forget the menu, go for the daily specials on the blackboard, they all come in half portions so you have an opportunity to taste three or four for lunch

We've been looking for an authentic ie not too touristic + good tapas place and found it here. Very tiny room but it creates the right atmosphere. The tapas were excellent as we mixed between the daily specials and the menu. Looking forward to trying the other Cervantes restaurants!
