**update** This tapas bar is now 'Manzanilla', there are still branches of Lamoraga at the beach and the airport - Please check again in the future for my reviews of Manzanilla and the 'other new' Lamoraga ***
Great tapas bar with friendly staff and 'different' tapas. It has a funky interior and a good atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: We had the morcilla with apple, which comes in a jar, you then spread it on crispbread - and octopus with potatoes in a spice sauce -very tasty!

This is a lovely restaurant with a funky interior. The staff are great, when I explained that I had to have gluten free food the waitress was very helpful, she knew exactly what was in each dish, apologised for not having any gluten free bread (most waiting staff bring me bread having instantly forgotten that I can't eat it!) and then brought us a free appetiser , which she had also checked was gluten free. What a nice lady!
The restaurant has a buzzy atmosphere and is very popular. It has several vegetarian dishes on the menu, something of a rarity in Spain!
Favorite Dish: Red pepper hummus, served with chicory leaves, yum!
We also had a delicious lightly spiced chicken dish with a yoghurt sauce, very good!

Ok, I'm just going to be honest - I"m totally biased about this place - I love it! It's like 'our local', the staff are lovely, super friendly, the food is good and there is a really nice atmosphere here.
Favorite Dish: My husband is slightly obsessed by the "cheese mine" (See the photo!) Delicious chunks of strong yummy cheese.
The oxtail meatballs are good, so is the chorizo and potato stew, the lettuce hearts with anchovy mayonnaise, the buñuelos de bacalo (cod fritters) and Salmon tartare are all very tasty!
They do great wine and good fino too, oh and their beer is nice and cold.

Tapas were not very tasty, and service was slow and poor, besides the waitress forgetting to bring back the change tendered for the bill; like it happened to another table also. I suspect that if someone forgets to ask for change, it goes into the pocket of the waitress and family ownership.
The cheese tapa array was only 3 small pieces for 5 Euro, and sausage tapas included 4 small and tasteless for 6 euro

When it's raining (doesn't happen that often!) or I feel the need for comfort food I sneak off to Blockhouse and have a steak and jacket potato - yum! The steak is always delicious and I feel happy once I've filled up on all the tasty food!!
It's not very Spanish and it's not 'haute cuisine', but sometimes you just want a good steak and a jacket potato!!
Favorite Dish: Gaucho Steak (Steak, jacket potato with sour cream and coleslaw) (€11.50) a glass of red wine and maybe a salad to start.
I also like the little Danish butter biscuits that you get with your coffee.
It is super busy Saturday afternoons, but you can book (by phone or online via the website).

Nice modern restaurant with an interesting menu offering some traditional dishes, and some not so traditional dishes. Good value tapas, nice decor and good staff.
Half of al punto is a bar with high tables, where you can enjoy the tapas menu, the other half is set out as a restaurant with lower tables and chairs.
Favorite Dish: The tapa of lettuce hearts is tasty and a perfect size.
The stuffed peppers are yummy.
The wine was very good as well...

This is a new restaurant (Part of the same group that has the excellent Mariano's restaurant). It has been decorated in a very Spanish way and reminds me of 'El Pimpi' - which is a very traditional bodega further up c/ Granada...
Favorite Dish: Their speciality is rice, with over 20 different recipes, you can even get them to takeaway!

This restaurant is a churrascaria, a Brazilian "all you can eat" restaurant. It would be a great place to 'fill up' before a long train journey where you can sleep it off!!
Favorite Dish: There is a set price, it's cheaper in the week, you order drinks at the table and the staff then bring you salad, fejoida (bean stew - it's yummy honest!), chips, fried bananas and rice. You then have a 'stop ' (red) and 'go' (green) disk - when the disk is on 'go' staff will come to your table with different types of meat, chicken, sausages etc. and carve them off a skewer at the table. When you've eaten enough, or need a rest, turn the disk to 'stop' - then if you want more - just turn it back to 'go'!!

Meson Gibralfaro was the final stop on our mini tapas bar crawl in Malaga one Sunday afternoon in February 2011.
We discovered this popular tapas bar on Pasaje de Chinitas, a restaurant-lined alleyway close to Plaza de la Constitucion in Malaga city centre.
Like Bar Orellana where we had just come from, Meson Gibralfaro was incredibly busy (standing room only!), but thanks to some lucky timing we arrived just as another couple were vacating their table and snagged it for ourselves. We perched on a couple of high stools next to a large wooden wine barrel that doubled up as a table.
The great thing about Meson Gibralfaro is that you'll have no problem seeing the food on offer before placing your order. Joints of ham and large sausages hang behind the bar, while dozens of other tempting dishes (a large bowl of paella, meats, cheeses, seafood, omelettes...) are displayed on top of the counter. We were also in a prime position to see food being delivered to the tables around us and I must say that the battered seafood (octopus, shrimps and fish) looked incredibly mouthwatering!
After a few minutes studying the menu card (translated from Spanish into English, French and German), I battled though the crowds to place our order at the bar.
We had wanted to try Ajoblanco, a cold garlic soup that is popular in the Malaga region. Alas, they had run out, so I ordered Gazpacho (2 Euros) instead. The gazpacho was served in a tall glass and its cold temperature suggested it had been chilled in the fridge for quite some time. It was thick and contained tomato and various vegetables, but I must confess that I didn't like it all that much. That's not a reflection on Meson Gibralfaro; more a reflection on my own taste and mainly due to the fact that I could taste a hint of cucumber in the soup.
We also ordered Ensalata Pimientos Asados (1.50 Euros), a pepper salad consisting of cold red and green peppers in a vinegar dressing and Tortitas de Camarones (1.20 Euros), "prawn cakes" in the form of thin potato pancakes filled with dozens of small prawns. The latter was a little greasy, but was by far my favourite dish of the three we ordered.
We received a basket of sliced bread and mini breadsticks which was included in a small cover charge (1.00 – 1.50 Euros).
I once again sampled the Malaga Wine (1.50 Euros) and it was as good, if not better, here as anywhere else that I'd tried it; it was thick and sweet and reminded me of the sherry that I drink back home at Christmas time.
In common with the other tapas bars we visited in Malaga, Meson Gibralfaro proved to be excellent value for money with our total bill coming to less than 10 Euros.
Authentic local tapas dishes in an atmospheric tapas bar on the bustling Pasaje de Chinitas. Great value for money and lots of food on show! Recommended!
