Four of us dined here. We had 2 shrimp dishes, a chicken dish and the catfish special. We all loved what we ordered. The leisurely pace of the meal was perfect. Service was efficient and friendly. Can't wait to return. Highly recommend!

Good food, fun place and very welcoming. Bread so very fresh and served warm. Mariscada ala verde is a must. We were 9 and were given a corner table so we have privacy. It was lunch on a Sunday - what joy to see a place packed with family gathering - and in spite of the large crown - service... More

And if you are lucky their employee will sing for you. The food is on point with taste and huge portions. It is for couples family or single peoe as... More

Malaga comfortably accommodated 2 dozen family members in its private room for my son's baptism reception. It was family style dining. The appetizers - garlic shrimp, chorizo, fried calamari, mussels, stuffed mushrooms, eggs vinaigrette (interesting flavor) - were all flavorful with the exception of the mussels; sadly the mussels had an off-putting odor and may not have been fresh. For... More

Overall, an enjoyable experience. Yummy bread and we loved the paella Valenciana! The empanadas had great flavor but too many onions and in large pieces. The service was exemplary.

They have rather jammed a lot off tables into the dining room but once seated our party of 7 was promptly greeted by the waiter, a very pleasant man who was very knowledgeable about the available dishes. The restaurant serves Spanish food, mostly but not limited to seafood, they have a selection of meats and poultry on the menu also.... More

I found Malaga on Tripadvisor and gave it a try on a Saturday night. Unfortunately, they wouldn't take a reservation for 4, but it turned out fine anyway. We arrived and put our name on the list and went to the lounge and had a pitcher of sangria that was terrific. After a 25 -30 minute wait we were seated... More

Great food. Everyone ordered different platters. Specials were good. Price was great. The area the restaurant is located is a little sketchy so beware of your surroundings. This is the only draw back.
