The paella is simply the best within the Malaga province and for a very affordable price. You pay 1 paella, but you can refill as many time as you want!

I hAd sardines which were fabulous whilst my wife had the buffet style (eat as much as you want) paella and it was excellent. The building looks like it’s not changed since the 60s and it’s well worth a visit.

Good food, good staff. Many years the same staff. Low prices, quick service. Crowded with guests but always a good seat and nice view on the paella eating people.

To be honest I don’t think they could be relied on for vegan food. We asked for a serving of paella with just chicken, no seafood, and they told us to pick out anything we didn’t want. They were not being rude, just very... More
