El Refectorium Malagueta

Updated September 2017


This is a fabulous neighbourhood bar just behind the bullring and a stone’s throw from Malagueta beach. Always busy and bustling, always serving excellent food. The tapas menu is small but, as with the longer restaurant menu, it’s all high quality stuff, and the service is top-notch, fast and friendly. Sister bar to chic El Refectorium Catedral this original location has its own special charm. Make sure to try the gambas pil pil and the rice of the day. Aside from the bar area and dining room inside there is a spacious sidewalk terrace.

  1. Just love el Refectorium, we are regular clients and the food and service is excellent, you didn’t get Miguel in the photo, the biznaga seller is Consuelo

  2. Hi Barbara,

    Thanks for the info. I was recently told that being a biznaguero was a male profession but remembered seeing Consuelo, so perhaps it’s just “mostly” male. I’ll be back in Málaga soon and will definitely be visiting El Refectorium again.
