Great food and service. Great out door patio. Very disappointed that they didn't have any Spanish wines the there wine list. They did have a nice selection. But I was looking forward to a good hearty Spanish Red. I am looking forward to going back.
Anniversary early 5:00 pm dinner reservations for two. The place is in disrepair from our last visit. The entry door collapsed and flopping at the bottom with the glass panes stained and dirty, creates a very poor first impression.
There were no other guest at that time, and we were seated in a two seat table by the windows. My wife asked for a larger table, the brunette hostess, showed mild irritation, "uum, okay?". Later that hostess appeared to be the senior staff present. Our waitress was excellent, both attentive and pleasant.
The menu has some changes, portions seemed larger, tapas were mostly good, inconsistent warmth, waiting maybe. There were at least 3 instances of going down the menus with the waitress, needs to make another choice because items were not in stock. The waitress did not seem flustered with not being able to deliver; that can't be a good sign. The desert menu was also reduced with what seemed premade items.
Its a significant downgrade in appearance, service, quality of food, and overall experience.
We were seated right away but then had to sit and wait and wait and wait....then we ordered and they were out of 2 of 5 things we ordered. Then we waited again....and waited....then they came and asked us what we ordered. The food is truly delicious, but bring someone you can talk to for hours.
Restaurant accommodated 10 people but the one server was extremely slow. There was no one else in the dining room two couples outside small plate menu was interesting and the foodwas very good. Small plates came for one or two but even the second for one were enough for several people to have a nice taste we heard it was going out of business. Sorry to lose a tapa restaurant, but there might not have been an audience for unusual food, or people may not have endured the slow service I would go back
Service was a little slow and there were no scallops that evening. Also bacon wrapped dates were a little over done as the shrimp. Been there before and it has been better.
Sitting outside is nice but the owners could spend a little money cleaning up the yard area and reducing the flies. Bathrooms are dirty too.
The food is great! It reminds me of our trips to Spain.
This is usually a great restaurant but this was really an off night. Something was wrong, I think the chef did not turn up
It would have been perfect had we not been sat outdoors. It's unfortunate that the waiter didn't tell us there would be a mob of mosquitos due to the stagnant water sitting in the unused fountain. My friend and I would have enjoyed ourselves much more were we not being eaten alive
Food was excellent as always. Great place to go with friends or family
We (6) ate indoors as it was still hot at 6:30. The food was good beginning with a few tapas and ending with a single desert to share. Service was attentive without being annoying. A pleasant experience.
One of our favorite places to go on a nice weekend evening. Don't ask for Jose, he's ours...;0) In all seriousness, he is awesome!
The outside property could be cleaned up and areas could be painted, plants in pots...instead of weeds. The patio cover needs cleaning!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall area needs HELP!
Great place ... Ask for waitor Jose... 'HE ROCKS. ' We loved it !!!!
Cafe Malaga is one of our favorite go to places for a great dinner and racion of tapas! Took some new friends over the weekend and they loved it! We'll be back.
