I went there with a friend on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked, but we got a table after 10 minutes, so all good. We ordered 3 dishes to share (pretty big) and food was nice. Tuna tataki was good, presa iberica was lovely and the kangaroo wok was ok. But the service was very slow, we were waiting like... More

Very friendly welcome from staff. Having already looked at the menu outside had already decided on my main meal, and wasn't disappointed. I normally pass on the pre-meal bread offering, but this one came with an intriguing looking dish of something to spread on the nice warm bread, so succumbed to temptation. Still not sure exactly what it was, but... More

First visit to restaurant we had been recommended . Service excellent. Wine very good and reasonable price. Main course duck for two of us tough but good taste accompaniment vegetables unimaginative. Very disappointing. Other guest chose fish which was good. Deserts disappointing, cheesecake solid and lacking zing, brownies presented as 'to die for' were very sweet , not that chocolatey... More

Due to the cold weather we did not eat outside but inside the restaurant it was warm and welcoming. Great food and service. Good range of gluten free options.

Ate dinner here with friends. It was their treat so didn't see whole bill but menu looked pricey for Malaga. Style is weird mix of Spanish and Far East fusion that does not quite work. Service was OK and attentive. It was busy and popular. My starter was so impressive I can't remember. I had a steak for main that... More

Our first time at this restaurant and we had a lovely meal. Food was excellent - beautifully presented and delicious. Very nice house wines at reasonable prices. Friendly, helpful staff. Our last night in Malaga and sad we didn't find this place earlier in the week. We will definitely be back on our next visit. Highly recommended.

We have been to this restaurant before and really enjoyed the food previously but this time while there wasn't anything really wrong it just wasn't that tasty. The tuna tartare was nice but the sauce was a bit sweet, the prawn curry was supposed to be a Thai red curry but was a yellow curry which had far too much... More

On a recent visit to malaga we came across this restaurant by chance, the place was packed mid afternoon with locals and tourists , we booked for the evening with the waiter explaining that the Spanish like to eat late so thought we'd join them for a 9:30 reservation . Due to a festival blocking the streets and roads we... More

The goatcheese salad was nice, the days special of wok tuna was a bit tasteless, not much spices. My wife had the gamba special with curry, which was great according to her.
