I iliked the place and food. Even though there was some language barrier the staff was polite and very helpful. We tried three different options from the menu and each one was really good.

I don't think so, as I understood that in the evening the restaurant is only open on Tuesday, Wednesday an Thursday. But you can always check with the restaurant.

Small restaurant in the heart of Malaga, next to the Plaza de la Merced, the Cervantes Theater, and the Birthplace of Picasso. Our cuisine is eclectic: the influence of Asian and South American cuisine, with a marked local spirit. And we love wine!
