Awesome atmosphere, felt right at home. was greeted with a smile. drinks were cold, our order was taken immediately, and, not familiar with Spanish food I said bring me the most authentic. It was out of this world. I am Italian and love this food. the neighborhood is said to be scary, but, not there. they have a parking lot... More

Pre-ordered three paella treys for a new years party with friends and family. They have three parking lots. The restaurant is nice, staff friendly. A good place to get authentic Spanish food. Price is above average but well worth it.

Went for lunch to celebrate the holidays. All the food was very good. I had the shrimp in green sauce over rice. The bread was crusty good. Sangria was great. They did squeeze 6 of us into a small table but we made the best of it. Prices are ok. Private parking available.

Every year a small group if us get together for a holiday dinner at a new restaurant. This year we went to Malaga. We absolutely loved it. From the cozy decor, to the wonderful, friendly service to the food, it was perfect. The seafood is delicious and fresh and the bread is the best. The special empanadas as an appetizer... More

Malaga is an old favorite and a really fun spot with great food. We love the sangria by the pitcher, appetizers of grilled chorizo, shrimp and garlic sauce and the Mariscada (prefer the verde) and paella. Steaks, chops and lobsters are also excellent but, I can't stay away from the mariscada.

We have been coming here for years and we have never been disappointed. The specials are always very creative and delicious, the Sangria (white or red) is out of this world, the regular menu will never disappoint and the wait staff are so nice you'll want to take them home. We bring our grandchildren all the time and we always... More

Malaga is a mandatory stop whenever I'm in Trenton. The food is absolutely fabulous and second only to the service. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a little hard to find but you will love it.
