El Balneario has to be Malaga’s most iconic bar and restaurant.
Enjoy the holiday, seaside vibes with a beer, copa or cocktail, day or night, or tuck into a nice lunch.
The menu has a wide variety of grilled fish, rice dishes (including paella) and, of course, the famous sardine skewers, grilled on an open fire.
Be sure to check out the social calendar here too, with live music often on the agenda.
