I've been eating at Malaga for years now. The cuisine has been consistently good: high-quality home-cooking style of "New York" Spanish. The best tapas are the octopus and the sardines (both exquisite), and the garlic shrimp is scrumptious -- a meal in itself. The garbanzo...More

Malaga has been a long time upper east side NYC restaurant serving outstanding Spanish food. They have recently refurbished but kept the menu, the quality and the service the same, if not better than in the past.
