Gastronomic experiences

Getting to know a place involves understanding its gastronomy, and in Málaga, that discovery is an immense pleasure.

The Malaga personality expresses all its power and spontaneity around a table. Malaga is full of bars and restaurants with terraces filled with people, always bustling. Gastronomy is experienced on the street level all year round, with the quality and warmth of the Mediterranean.

We suggest starting your gastronomic journey at the Matiz restaurant, because besides being an unavoidable meeting point in the city and being on the ground floor of the Molina Lario hotel, it is a reference for the best flavors of this part of the Costa del Sol, with updated Malaga cuisine and signature cocktails.

Fresh produce and quality are constants, both in restaurants and bars. To get an idea of its excellent raw materials, you can visit the Atarazanas Market, the main market in Malaga. It's housed in a beautiful Nasrid building from the 14th century and has numerous stalls with fresh and local products, as well as the hustle and bustle of individuals and restaurateurs looking for good merchandise, along with customers from the tapas bars and restaurants in the same area.

The Antigua Casa de Guardia, one of the oldest taverns in the city founded in 1840, also never rests. It produces renowned wines from traditionally cultivated vines in the Montes de Málaga, including Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez varieties, among them El Pajarete.

La Recova combines gastronomy and craftsmanship in a charming place full of ceramics, basketry, and antiques, perfect for enjoying a hearty breakfast or lively vermouths.

And you wouldn't fully know Malaga without strolling along the beaches of Pedregalejo and tasting its "espetos", fish (often sardines) skewered on canes and grilled over the sand in old fishing boats. Enjoy your meal!
