Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of ComoLoco

The perfect choice for healthy, light meals in the centre of the city.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the main square, Plaza de la Constitucíon, in the historic centre, this is the perfect place to grab a bite while shopping or sightseeing. At lunch, it’s usually packed with Malaga’s yummy mummies in the middle of a day’s retail therapy, office workers, art students and culture vulture tourists. I often stop here in the evenings too before hitting the bars.

Food and drink: 

It’s mainly innovative salads, tasty wraps, healthy kebabs and generously-filled pitas. My favourite is the abuela pita, which is overflowing with rocket, goats' cheese, caramelised onions and a lightly flavoured mustard dressing. Delicious. There's a good selection of local and imported beers too.

Ambience: 

Shopping and souvenir bags, and briefcases and art portfolios line the pine benches in the windows as customers meet here for lots of upbeat, noisy chatter.

Service: 

It can be a little slow at busy times, but the team, consisting mainly of students, are polite.

Location: 

It's in a small alley way, around the corner from Plaza Mijeña, and just a minutes’ stroll from Calle Granada - one of the main shopping streets.

Price advice: 

It's cheap and cheerful with main dishes costing around 8 euros. This is economic crisis-defying food.
