The Tapa is a mandatory reference in Spanish cuisine. It is a popular, out on the street custom, which reflects the living image of a traditional and flavorful history. We would like you to meet small paradises difficult to get to in the culinary map of Malaga.

Our sherpas will take you on a 3,5 hours tapas tour that drifts away from the standard itineraries, where small artisans, grocers, and chefs will share their personal stories and their passion for food.

In this Taste of Malaga Tapas Tour, conceived as a type of “restaurant hopping” very commonly done in the everyday life of locals, you will savor a great variety of creative, surprising and delicious tapas in many different prestigious establishments as you you eat your way through Malaga’s old town!

At the same time you learn about Malaga’s rich (food) history and culture, passing by some of its most emblematic sites and culinary hotspots.

And at the end of the tour, your Sherpa will give you our exclusive Malaga Dining Guide, with all our favorite places to eat and drink in Malaga put on a handy map.

What to Expect

Our Tapas Tour starts with a visit to the famous Atarazanas Market, where you can enjoy its beautiful colors and flavors and experience the diverse, seasonal products of our region. Meet their stand holders and taste some of its best produce- true locally made specialties.

You will learn how to distinguish 3 different types of “Jamón”, including our worldwide famous and highly appreciated Iberian Bellota ham, acorn fed.  Awake your senses and enjoy this hand-cut delicatessen in a small, family-run specialty store.

But not only traditional tapas reflect our local gastronomy, but also the ones with a modern twist, although always inspired by autochthonous ingredients and authentic recipes. A good example is the mouth-watering Pil- Pil Prawns Wrap of our friend Willy from Uvedoble.

Throughout the whole tour you will be guided by a member of our team, a so called Food Sherpa, who is an expert in our culture and has intimate knowledge of the Malaga’s best-kept foodie secrets.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the best places to eat in Malaga and to discover hidden gems that even locals don’t know about!

Tastings  are likely to change to reflect seasonal produce, and our partners availability.

Our  Taste of Malaga Tapas Tour serves enough food to be equivalent to a hearty lunch.

  • We are malagueños and love to eat! That’s why we would only take you to places that totally convince us and where we go with our friends and families. No tourist traps
  • Not all Tours are created equal. Our tours are not standardized, but a real reflection of the delicacies every season has to offer and the creativity of our chefs. We took much time and effort in designing the tours so you can enjoy delicious treats, discover hidden places and submerge in our (food) culture in local hideaways.
  • Feel welcome and like a local. We have great friendships and exclusive partnerships with restaurants, taverns and market vendor.
  • Expert foodie guides. They truly are real professionals and experts on local cuisine!
  • Much more than wonderful food in interesting places. There’s more to it- it’s about the attitude, about getting a bit closer to our authentic culture and real people!

Although anytime is a good time to do a food tour, if it fits your schedule, it’s best to book the tour early on your trip because you’ll come out with lots of recommendations for other places to try and things to do.

Also, after your tour in Malaga, you’ll receive our Dining Guide that comes with a handy map where we have put all our favourite places to eat and drink.

There are no discounts for non-drinkers as in Spain, and specially in southern Spain non-acoholic drinks  normally cost  the same as beer or wine.

Of course you can! One of the great things about our tours is the opportunity to meet other travellers from all over the world.

Our tours require 2 people to take place. If there is no one else booked, you can sign up for the class without paying and will receive a confirmation pending email. When the minimum number is reached, your booking will be automatically accepted and you’ll be asked for the online payment
