Where to Eat & Drink in Málaga, Spain

Where to Eat & Drink in Málaga

Spanish food is easily one of my favourite cuisines, from tapas to paella, it’s hard to find something that isn’t delicious.

In my my last blog, I’d mentioned that we’d traveled to Málaga and spent just under two weeks in Torremolinos. The weather was fantastic and the food was just as good!

Spain is one of those destinations were you’re almost guaranteed good weather whenever you go. I’ve been to Barcelona/Girona and Seville in mainland Spain, along with Gran Canaria (one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa) and the weather has always been amazing. Even traveling to Seville in the middle of winter, it was minimum 15 degrees Celsius!

Anyway, it was nice to travel down to the Costa Del Sol and pretty much eat and drink our way around when we weren’t exploring or lazing on the beach.

We ate in so many different places that it’d be too many to list them all! So here is a selections of different places we went to:

 

1. Seafood Paella in La Cabaña

We ate here on our first night in Torremolinos; seafood paella and a jar of tinto by the beach – bliss.

 

2. Tapas by Málaga marina in Gaucho Grill

I’ll admit that we did get convinced into eating in this restaurant by the guy outside; but with a tapas deal available and the offering of complimentary prossesco, we couldn’t say no! It was delicious too and sitting by the marina while the sun was setting was perfect.

 

3. Waffles and ice cream at Heladeria La Carihuela

When the sweet tooth kicks in after dinner..! We had a warm waffle with a scoop of ice cream (I had Ferrero Rocher – amazing!)

 

4. Drinks on the rooftop at La Terraza de la Alcazaba

We made our way to this rooftop location to catch the sunset after dinner one evening. It’s a balcony bar at the top of a Hostel. Definitely head there for the sunset – the view is unbelievable – and the cocktails are pretty tasty too! (You can also creep on Antonio Banderas’ penthouse apartment which is directly across the road.)

 

5. Churros and chocolate at a local café

Churros and chocolate were on our list of desserts to try while in Spain and they did not disappoint. You dip the churros into the hot chocolate sauce with some sugar and then enjoy! You can find churros in most cafes and restaurants around the area.

 

6. Fresh fruit juice at Mercado Central Atarazanas

Refreshing beetroot and berry juice from the market. We stopped off here during a cycling tour of the city.

Our next trip is to Edinburgh, so if you have any recommendations for where to eat and drink, please leave a comment below! 🙂
