Eating is always the best plan! But, you know, there are places, and places. I love when, visiting a new city, locals recommend to me the best places to enjoy a good dinner.

Gusto is an italian restaurant in Malaga city centre where you will be able to taste delicious pizzas ‘napolitanas’, pasta, carpaccio and other italian recipes. The pizzas are baked in a stone oven and the dough is incredible!

2. Fiel de fechos

Coming inside Fiel de Fechos restaurant is like coming to a circus. This thematic restaurant is originally decorated with circus elements and colors. There are colorful wallpapers all over the place and many masks and beautiful decorations but the best part is absolutely the plating. Food is served in original platas. 

The best dish there, in my opinion, is the potato omelet (tortilla de patatas) that comes inside a huge egg!

If you want a sushi restaurant in Malaga, Sibuya is a great option for you! It’s located in Calle Granada and its sushi is delicious! They also have noodles and other typical asian dishes like noodles or tartar.

5. Batik

A sophisticated atmosphere with stunning views all over the Alcazaba (Malaga’s castle). That’s what you’ll find in Batik restaurant, the Hotel Alcazaba Premium’s gastronomy place.

My recommendation: leave room for the dessert: the cheesecake here is insane!
