Wondering where you should eat and drink in Malaga, Spain? Come along as I take you through three amazing spots in my Malaga food guide.
El Tapeo de Cervantes, Calle Carretería
Let me start by saying that my trip to El Tapeo de Cervantes completely made the holiday for me. Being a huge foodie, I really appreciate great cooking when I taste it. El Tapeo de Cervantes definitely delivered in this department. I don’t think I’d ever eaten anything to such a high standard until I ate here. Long story short, their food kind of blew my mind. A definite must-visit when you’re over there. One tip however is to book in advance because it’s a tiny restaurant!
Meson Lo Gueno, Calle Marín García
Honestly, I think I visited Meson Lo Gueno approximately 5 times in my 9-day holiday. It was THAT good. One of my favourite aspects of Spain is the casual dining experience. I love being able to have a glass of wine and a tapas sat at the bar. Meson Lo Gueno was the perfect place to do this. Whether it be in the afternoon, after a relaxation on the beach or late in the evening, it was such a great spot.
Central Beers Craft Beer, Calle Cárcer
I’m aware that a craft beer bar might not be exactly what you had in mind when looking for must-visit spots around Malaga, but, bare with me with this one. Located on Calle Cárcer, and very conveniently just around the corner from where I was staying, Central Beers quickly turned into a go-to bar of mine for a quick afternoon/early evening drink. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of a lager or pale ale, I’ve always loved a good Belgian fruit beer and, at Central Beers, there was plenty to choose from. Their Lindemans cherry beer ended up being a staple of mine while I was away (as was the house red). As for the space itself, it was effortlessly cool – high tables, exposed brick walls and an incredibly well-stocked bar. For a relaxed few drinks in the heart of Malaga, Central Beers should certainly be on your list.
These were just a few of the many amazing eateries and bars that are on offer in Malaga. I could’ve easily written about ten different spots but, as I’m sure your stomachs are rumbling just reading this, I cut it down to a select three.
Have you ever been to Malaga before? What were some of your favourite spots? I’d love to know for the next time I take a trip over there – whenever that might be!
