Casa Lola – Amazing tapas in Malaga!

Casa Lola – Amazing tapas in Malaga!


End of my 15 days route through Andalucia.

When I look back and realize that about 12 months have passed since I got back from that trip I think that I was a bit lazy with my reviews and pictures.

2018 was a difficult and busy year but I’m hoping that 2019 will be calmer and I will be able to write more often on the blog, travel more and take even more pictures. As I side note, 2019 is fully here and it is hectic. So much for calm.

Travelling through Andalucia brought some great food experiences and with one exception I can honestly say that I loved almost all my meals in this part of Spain.

I still can’t decide if the place I will review today was the best from my entire trip. It is a very close race with Bodega Dos de Mayo from Seville.

I loved them both and I think they are a must if you visit Seville or Malaga.

Casa Lola, the place I will write today about, is a place where I ate 2 times during my last days of the trip and before starting the review I will throw a spoiler and say from the start that this place was amazing.

Ideally situated in the center of old Malaga, Casa Lola is a stone throw away from the Malaga Cathedral or the Picasso Museum.

Walking through the streets of old Malaga I noticed this place, filled with people, locals and tourists and managed to secure a place outside for the first time, the second time around eating inside at the bar.

Now, I won’t lie to you.

This place is busy. Always busy as I seen on the dates that I visited or when I passed next to it a few times, just walking, looking around for new places to photograph.

The staff is great. I wasn’t decided on some things and I received a few suggestions each time that really turned out delicious.

Even though the place was busy they managed to explain things I did not understand from the menu or suggest tapas which I might enjoy.

As you can see from my pictures I ate quite a lot of tapas on both occasions and I did not had one I didn’t enjoy.

I really tasted some amazing things like a Lola recipe or a Lola secret and I highly recommend that if you are in Malaga to try this place and actually listen to the staff’s recommendations.

I paid well under 20 euro each time and that is a great price considering the amount of food I received.

If you read my eating article from Valencia you surely noticed I compared food and food prices from there to the places where I tried food in Andalucia.

When it comes to Casa Lola things are just in a different league and the places I tried in Valencia are far from that taste or the ratio between price and quality.

I will let my review purposely short because I don’t want to bore you with endless details of how good the food actually was.

I usually, as you know by now, stay away from places located in the center of the city but this time I am really glad I took a chance and tried this place.

Since I think I will reach Malaga again in the future I will definitely stop at this place to eat again.

And here you have it!

My final review from Andalucia!

Months have passed since my return from that trip and I still enjoy admiring the places I saw. For me it was a dream come true and this part of Spain proved more than amazing for me.

I am still working on a big article with lots of info for all of you that want to visit this part of Spain but it will take a while since I’m already 6000 words in it and feel like I didn’t even started well.

Until then, many new articles from England, Morocco and Valencia will follow as well as new pictures on my Instagram or on my FB page.


Ps: unlike the usual reviews I honestly must say that I forgot which food was in each picture. I will list all that I ate here on my two trips and you can try anything and I bet you will like it.
