Very cheap place but with good quality fish tapas and good malaga wine. The "cantinieri" may seem a little bit bored and scorbutic but they are well embedded in the context od this place. Do not worry, sometimes they smile too. Antigua Casa del Guardia...More

This is a typical bodega. It is standing and it serves a limited number of tapas. It is not a restaurant.
