El Restaurante de Los Picapiedra (The Flintstones Restaurant) is an excellent choice if you go out to eat with the kids. The famous characters from the cartoon series are very much like the decor. You can sit in a chair that in the style of a dinosaur bone or the stone quarry where Fred Flintstone worked. Everything is decorated perfectly with fake animal skins that those funny cavemen use. And of course their pet, Dino, is also around! There is also a kids’ menu based on burgers.

Fonda Casa Pepa, Carratraca

Fonda Casa Pepa

This charming restaurant is located in the town of Carratraca. At first glance it looks like a summer house but walk in and there is a fully equipped inn with a small lounge that retains the photos of those who have lived there. The feeling you get when eating here is like being at grandma’s house. The dishes are cooked by hand and if a group of people decide to have lunch at this place, the food served in the same pan it was made in. Guests can help themselves. Prince Charles has been one of the guests of honour in this unique tavern.

Venta El Túnel

Venta El Túnel

The inn The Tunnel is an unusual restaurant in Málaga as the food is served “grandma style”, i.e. in the pan. Rice with chicken broth is their specialty and people from all parts of the province come to eat here. Loin in butter, migas, tripe and los Montes wine have been the main attraction for its loyal customers for many years. This inn was built on the edge of the road going to Antequera by the very hands of the owners who were farmers.

If you go here, you simply must try the miso soup, tuna belly, the misoyaki butterfish or the sakurani octopus.

Restaurant La Cocina Chipriota, Fuengirola

Restaurante La Cocina Chipriota, Fuengirola

This restaurant is an institution in Fuengirola. The Cypriot Kitchen is an unusual establishment, not because of its food but the astrological halo around it. Here you can taste the traditional dishes of this country after which you have the future at your hands. If you order a coffee, when you finish it, you have to turn it upside down and put your hands on top, focusing all your energy on it. The store owner reads the dregs that are left in the cup and will amaze you with his predictions for your future.

Picnic, Malaga

Picnic Soho, Málaga

Picnic is an establishment inspired by the traditional US diner. This restaurant, located in the Soho of Malaga, is committed to offering simple, but well-prepared gastronomy. The most curious thing about this place is that this restaurant occupies what was once a brothel and in a very risky, albeit original, way has been able to make use of a large part of the original infrastructure. A caravan has also been installed as a decorative element to “wrap around” the kitchen. Its strong pint is the home-made bread and the Galicia meat burgers, in addition to its exquisite cakes. Don’t worry if you are vegan, since there is also a chickpea, vegetable and curry burger.

Brunchit, Malaga

Brunchit, Málaga

Brunchit is the perfect place if you are into self-care. Its varied juice menu is the best you will find, with apple, beetroot, radish, spinach, among others. It is the only one you will find in this part of Malaga. If you are passionate about Italian cuisine, we recommend you combine one of these juices with a delicious pizza, lasagna or focaccia bread. Its cuisine is imbued with a Mediterranean and healthy philosophy wrapped up in a minimalist and informal air. You won’t regret coming.

Recyclo Bike Café, Malaga

Green juices are trendy and that’s a fact, and, as such, are one of the strongest aspects of the culinary proposal of this odd establishment that started out with a very original proposal: combining a love of cycling with gastronomy and culture. Here you can enjoy original salads, burgers, burritos and sandwiches.

The walls are, of course, decorated with bicycles, though local art is also displayed and artisanal markets are sometimes organised.

    I love articles like this, so interesting. I think the Casa Pepa is my favourite, though the bus is also a great idea.
