Experience the best restaurants in Marbella

WHEN STAYING AT QUARTIERS MARBELLA APARTMENTS

Malaga is a synonym with sunshine, beaches, golf, nightlife, good food, and restaurants. Here we recommend some of the best, although it is impossible to mention all of them.

Signature food, Michelin awarded chefs and restaurants

Malaga, together with Girona, Asturias, and Alicante, is one of the most appreciated culinary and gastronomic regions in Spain. It is almost impossible not to enjoy great food wherever you are. Fast food and ready-to-eat foods are not very common, as you can understand while Spanish tapas, which are found in almost all bars, are unbeatable when you are looking for a quick bite.
