UVEDOBLED


You can not miss this restaurant in Malaga. Uvedoble has won the first prize for their Russian Salad. A bit crazy since the dish originally comes from Russia, but Russian Salad is so popular in the region that every year all restaurants in Malaga compete against each other for the No. 1 place for the best Russian Salad.In 2018 the price was won by Uvedoble. Of course we had to taste this, and ofcourse the rest of the complete menu. The Russian Salad is simple, but oh so good and seriously addictive. Actually everything was just fantastic. Uvedoble serve traditional tapas with a modern twist. You should definetely try the kebab with shrimp. For us this place was the No. 1 hotspot of Malaga.

LOS PATIOS


This place is a hiddem gem. At Los Patios you will find the best wines of spain. And with wine comes good food. From extensive dining to small bites. There is a cozy atmosphere and the employees are super friendly. You should definitely try the tuna, but also the croquettes. We got this tip during our food tour through Malaga and were very happy with it.

MESÓN MARIANO
