Dove mangiare[Modifica sezione]

Along the coast there are dozens of restaurants and "chiringuitos" (restaurants on the beach) where you can have fish, seafood, paella, sangria, etc. One of the most famous chiringuitos is “El Tintero”, at the east end, where there is no menu: the waiters sing out what they are carrying and they let you a plate at your sign. From time to time one of them offers to give you the bill. The most typical thing to eat in Málaga is espetos, which are sardines in a stick cooked by the fire; and pescaito frito: all types of fried fish from anchovies to squid. Try also the coquinas (little shellfish cooked with white wine). Simply delicious!

Proposte[Modifica sezione]

Rojo. [1] Granada 44. Tel 952 227 486. Very stylish city centre restaurant cooking in the modern French/European style. Impeccably presented and delicious main courses, the best we had in Málaga. Desserts nothing special however; suspect they may not have a pastry chef. Mains €10-15. Good reasonably-priced wine list, €7-25/bottle. Excellent service.

Restaurante Gallego Candamil. Cuarteles 15. Tel 952 323 907. On the street leading from the train station to the centre, this Galician restaurant is very popular with the locals. This is understandable when you see the great range of quality tapas at fantastic prices, e.g. tapa of empanada €1.25, glass of cider €1.15.

A Casa Gallega. Fernán Núñez 2. Tel 952 040 287. Another Galician haunt a little further towards, although still outside, the centre, this one does not have any menu but relies on the clientele knowing what they want. Good empanada, pimientos de Padrón. Atmospheric.

Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro. [2] Castillo de Gibralfaro. Tel 952 22 19 02. Although we read a lot of good things about the restaurant at the parador, we were disappointed. The food just wasn't great. The service by contrast was exemplary, together with all the nice little free appetizers, aperitifs, etc. Wine list tended towards the expensive but with the excellent idea of a monthly wine choice 'balancing quality and value' which in our case was a very palatable Ribera del Duero Crianza at €10. Set menu €27 p/p (+ IVA.) Not worth the diversion unless you are staying there; even then maybe limit it to one night of your stay. Fantastic view of the city, especially from the terrace.
