We had 300 minutes approx to accomplish our tapas run and it was certainly not a race or any kind of food or beverage competition, it was, to put it bluntly, a social and most enjoyable evening out with some good friends, searching for some tasty tapas and drinks.
Two out of the three tapas bars we visited were great, offering excellent value for money with a good atmosphere and a tasteful and varied selection of tapas.
La Taberna del Pintxo Very pleasant to sit outside watching the world go by. The service was good and attentive and they offered a good and varied selection of pre-prepared tapas. Modern style tapas bar.
Cortijo de Pepe. This is their website highlighting their restaurant. Located opposite Plaza Mercedes. Established in 1973 this is one of our favourite bars but due to its popularity, it gets very crowded and there is standing room only when all the bar seats are taken. Good traditional and varied tapas always on offer.
La Tertulia. This was our first visit and quite frankly, a little disappointing. We found the tapas very acceptable but the drinks were very expensive and rather spoilt our visit there.
El Bodega Pimpi is one of the most well known and popular Bodegas in Málaga. Established in 1971 it is steeped in tradition and design and attracts so many visitors and it also holds some cultural events. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to visit it this time around.
The Málaga Tapas Tour was another successful social event organised by The Foreign Department of Periana Town Hall and ¨open¨ to anyone of any nationality or age. This event was made even more enjoyable as we were picked up and taken back to Periana by the excellent coach service that was provided by Periana Autocares. The next event is a trip to see the Málaga Christmas Lights. December 9th.
