Went here with my mum for dinner after a long day of sightseeing and sunning ourselves. We stumbled upon the place walking from the Roman Theatre. It caught our eye because of the sweet decor and lights outside. The food was exquisite - beautifully cooked French food served as tasting plates in a tapas style, washed down with a bottle of Bordeaux. The owners, a couple from Bordeaux, were so friendly and truly passionate about their food. Would highly recommend!

Yep! I am French (nobody is perfect) but it entitled me to give a bit of an opinion on this place. I live in Málaga and have for while now. This is the only place that truly gives you an authentic taste of France at a reasonable price.
Safe bet. Go for it !

Make sure to visit this restaurant. We had the cheese platter, tuna, vegetable tart tartin and fried cod. All dishes were amazing. It's mostly French, but with some influences (Spanish, Asian). The host was really friendly as well. And the white house wine we had was very good (as one might expect in a French restaurant). The place is nicely decorated as well and the bathrooms are very clean. Don't miss out on this one when you are in Malaga!

I stumbled on this restaurant durong Semana Santa and have been back two more times since. What a nice place for dinner. The first thing that sticks out is the service - absolutely fantastic. I was not certain the place was really French until I was offered something to drink. The waiter/owner spoke spanish with a very strong and pleasant French accent. His wife, Marie, is in the kitchen and prepares everything herself, all food is homemade. While the menu has many recognizable Spanish dishes, Marie always brings a little French touch to all of them. In addition, they also have daily dishes that are distinctly French.

Locared in the centre of the historic quarter, this restaurant is not to be missed in Málaga, both for the quality of the food, the very friendly service andfor something a bit different!
