Restaurants in Malaga
The province of Malaga is very famous throughout Spain for its rich gastronomy, which consists of both Andalusian and international cuisine. There is a sheer endless number of excellent and at the same time economic restaurants in Malaga, so visitors have to figure out first, what kind of cuisine they would like to taste.
The city centre of Malaga contains various good tapa bars, where tourists can savour local specialities like fried fish, tortillas, salmorejo, gazpacho, jamon iberico, diverse seafood and sherry wines from Jerez. However, tapa bars can not only be found in Malaga, but in every other town along the Costa del Sol. An insider’s tip for brilliant and economic home-made food are the restaurants in the mountains, for example the so-called “ventas” in the Montes de Malaga, where mainly locals go dining in a natural atmosphere and enjoy the marvellous panoramic views.
The third type of restaurants are the typical international establishments along the Costa del Sol, specialised in a determinate kind of cuisine, e.g. Chinese food (wok restaurants and buffet food), Italian cuisine (pizzerias), British food (often with breakfast and lunch buffet) and the oriental cuisine (kebaps, shawarmas etc). Other individually-chosen economic establishments that we can recommend are the tapa bar “Matahambre” in Fuengirola (Plaza San Rafael), the Italian restaurant “Pizzeria Bella Vista” in the mountains of Torremolinos and the “100 Montaditos”, which can be found in the shopping centres Miramar in Fuengirola and Centro Larios in Malaga City, offering a selection of 100 different sandwiches with typical Spanish ingredients.
