El Chinitas

Price: Expensive

Handily located just off the main pedestrian street, this is a favourite Málaga restaurant for its old-style décor and classic Andalucian cuisine. Meat dishes stand out, but they also know how to treat a fish.

Address: Calle Moreno Monroy 4, Malaga, Spain
Telephone: (95) 221 0972


Price: Moderate

This beachside Málaga classic specialises, like so many around here, in fried fish dishes. But you don't order them; the waiters bring plates out of the kitchen in a constant stream. If you want it, call out and take it from them. Very loud but lots of fun.

Address: Playa del Dedo s/n, El Palo, Malaga, Spain
Telephone: (95) 220 4464


Price: Moderate

Open from lunch, this popular central Málaga restaurant offers a laid-back, inclusive atmosphere reminiscent of an artists' café. The food is inventive, confident brasserie fare with a gourmet touch.

Address: Calle Niño de Guevara 3, Malaga, Spain
Telephone: (95) 221 9390

La Campana

Price: Cheap

Buzzing marisquería in the centre of town where you can feast alongside local office workers on the tastiest, freshest fish and seafood nibbles, washed down with good local wines. Typical and reliable Málaga restaurant.

Address: Calle Granada 35, Malaga, Spain
Telephone: (95) 222 7566

Bar Lo Gueño

If you can't find standing room in this famous atmospheric tapas bar (it is usually cheek by jowl), you can eat in their small restaurant opposite. A fabulous selection of tapas is on hand.
