Taberna El Mentidero – Review

This traditional tavern is a great option in the center of Málaga for an authentic Andalusian meal.

Everything from the decoration to the food itself is as authentically Andalusian as it gets.

If you’re in the center of town and you want a good, traditional southern Spanish meal, this is a great option.
