Casa Lola is a chain of traditional Spanish restaurants in Malaga that has experienced tremendous growth in recent years thanks to its blend of traditional Spanish cuisine with a modern twist.
The menu at Casa Lola features a wide array of traditional Spanish dishes, expertly prepared with a contemporary flair. From classic tapas and regional specialities, to innovative interpretations of beloved favourites, diners can expect a culinary journey that balances tradition and innovation.
All of this is paired with a selection of the best wines and vermouths from Malaga, with designation of origin.
Three branches in the city centre
With three branches strategically located in the city centre, there are now multiple spots to sample the Casa Lola experience.
The first to open, on the busy Calle Granada, perhaps has the most authentic feel, with it often packed to the rafters at any given time with punters keen to sample the local vermouth.
The second, on Calle Strachan, close to the Cathedral, unsurprisingly has a slightly more upmarket vibe.
The biggest of the three is split across both sides of Plaza Uncibay, with a pleasant outdoor terrace connecting the two of them.
Pez Lola, the latest addition
In addition to the three branches in the city centre, Casa Lola has also expanded its reach with an offshoot called Pez Lola.
Also located on Calle Granada, close to Plaza Uncibay, this restaurant, specialising in high-quality seafood from Malaga, as well as seasonal products, caters to seafood enthusiasts and further diversifies the restaurant’s offerings.
