La Malinche are two concepts into one: first, a tapas bar with spikes at the time, a selection of wines by the glass and a special selection of cocktails and mixed; on the other hand, a casual restaurant where you can enjoy lunch or dinner in a friendly atmosphere and excellent cuisine with Mediterranean and Cantabrian accents
