El Cenachero is an excellent seafood restaurant (Marisquería) in Malaga’s old town. The staff are friendly, the food is good and the prices are good for the area.

The outside tables are perfect for a warm evening dinner al fresco. A glass partition separates diners from the street which also isn’t as busy as others.

A glass of good house Rioja €3, A large bottle of water €1.80.

We visited three times, always sharing a big plate of delicious boquerones fritos (fried anchovies) €11.50 as a starter.

Pulpo a la Plancha (Galician-Style Octopus) €15.50

Brocheta Rape (Monkfish Skewer) €22

0.5kg Lenguado a la Plancha (grilled Sole) €25.

Jibia Plancha (grilled Cuttlefish) €13.

1.1kg Lubina (Salt-baked Sea Bass) for two, filleted tableside €55.
