Reasons for trip


Just off the ‘Oxford Street’ of Malaga (Calle Larios) is the small Plaza las Flores. Here we found at least three restaurants, but for an early evening drink chose the quietest, Terraza de las Flores, choosing to sit under the canvas awning, rather than inside, as the September weather was beautiful.

We opted for a glass of cava sangria which was very moreish with lots of chopped fresh fruit, and having seen us picking it out with our fingers, the friendly waiter brought out spoons. We chose two tapas to keep us going as our lunch had been complimentary breadsticks. The two croquettas and a chicken skewer, both came with a few chips and were delicious but not too big. We settled on another drink, this time opting for a large beer and glass of wine, poured without measure from the bottle at the table.

When we paid the bill, we realised that the final two drinks had been omitted and decided to be honest bearing in mind we thought we’d return. The guy was very grateful, so we decided not to add service charge to the revised bill of €25.50.

We returned a few days later for dinner and opted for a sharing paella for two. We waited a little while for the paella and wondered where it would fit on the table which was already full with wine and bread. However, the waitress popped it on the adjacent table and after taking photos served it out beautifully for us ensuring an equal division of the prawns and calamari. It was very comforting and not too big, and we did it justice. With a bottle of wine our bill came to €48.50. We finished our wine, just as the adjacent tables were becoming noisy.
