Eating Out in Malaga, Spain

Malaga Eating Out

Whether you're looking for traditional Andalusian cuisine or something with a more international flavour, Malaga has something for you. A lot of restaurants can be found scattered throughout the city centre, as well as along Alcazabilla, and a little further afield along the beach at Pedregalejo.

Around the city centre, you'll find a large number of cafeterias. These establishments are a great choice for breakfast, where you'll find a great choice of hot or cold dishes, as well as coffees and pastries. One such restaurant is Anglada on Puerta del Mar.

If you're looking to go the traditional route, then Lo Gueno on C/ Marin Garcia is a good choice, as it serves everything from gazpacho (a cold, tomato soup) to tapas.

Vegetarians and vegans who visit the city are well catered for too, with the Restaurante Vegetariano de la Alcazabilla providing a particularly full and interesting menu.
