Rucua Gastro bar is a good option if you are down by the port in Málaga.
They offer really high-quality tapas and raciones at a very reasonable price.
The restaurant is small and unassuming and the food is top-notch.
If you are in the area and feeling peckish, this is a great option.

Ajoblanco is one of Malaga´s most famous dishes. A cold and refreshing soup, ajoblanco may not be as famous as gazpacho but it is as tasty and healthy as its cousin. Ajoblanco is made with almonds and garlic. Small bit of melon and breadcrumbs are added to the dish. If you are in Malaga around September 2nd you will be able to taste ajoblanco in many different variations since this is the dedicated to ajoblanco in Malaga! Porra Antequerana from the village of Antequera is also a cold soup. It is however thick and with tomatoes as its main ingredients. Unlike gazpacho, la Porra antequerana is usually served as a tapa rather than as a starter. Espeto of Sardines is a fantastic way to taste sardines. A traditional espeto implies to grill the sardines right after they have been taken from the sea. As a matter of fact, a espeto is tradionally roasted in the beach, with a burning firewood (though slowly cooked) . Meatballs in almond sauce. This is a typical tapa you will find at many bars and restaurants in Malaga.
There is no precise rule as to how much to tip in Spain. Spaniards only tip if they consider the service to be good. A 5% is normally considered a good tip. Having said this, some local waiters know tourists tip more than local Spaniards do and may expect more from foreigners.
