La Taberna de Monroy – Review

The restaurant is located in the Historical City center of Málaga.

It’s a small bistort-style restaurant that serves tasty homemade Andalusian-style dishes.

From the outside, it may look like just another Spanish tavern: the decoration is simple and unassuming, it features the typical bar lined with local regulars, etc. but, of course, Monroy is not an average bar.

The food is simple and delicious and the wine selection takes everything to the next level.

They offer an extensive selection of Spanish wine, specializing in wines from Córdoba.
