El Chinitas

Once a café frequented by the poet Federico García Lorca and the artists Salvador Dalí and Picasso, now El Chinitas is a quaint restaurant, in the heart of Malaga's old town, serving typical Spanish cuisine. Here, you can either eat outside and watch the people pass by, or have a seat inside and enjoy your meal in a room where Spanish artworks cover all the walls and giant pieces of ham hang from the ceiling.

Dining

In Malaga, you won't find that many restaurants sporting white tablecloths. The city is full of informal taverns bustling with people and an extensive selection of tapas. Here, they generally eat a lot of fish and shellfish at the so-called 'chiringuitos' along the beach and the Paseo Marítimo in Pedregalejo.
