Food and drink
El Jardin is open all day and well into the evening so you could, if you fancied, have breakfast, lunch and dinner here. What about an espresso and freshly toasted, olive oil-drizzled pitufo (soft roll) with sweet tomato, before tapas and pescaito frito (small, fried fish) for lunch? And some Iberian hams or oven-roasted chicken for supper?
Both the restaurant, with its high ceilings, marble pillars, statues and elegant bow windows, and the sun-trap terrace remind diners of what a joy Malaga can be. The interior's palms and bronzes give it a turn-of-the-century, imperial feel.
The staff are cheery, but sometimes patience is required when it’s busy.
It's opposite the imposing cathedral in the historic centre.
A tapas selection at lunch is 10 euros.
