ANDALUCÍA - MÁLAGA - MARBELLA - TABERNA LA NIÑA DE EL PISTO

TABERNA LA NIÑA DEL PISTO

This, is one of our favourite bar/restaurants in the old town of Marbella. You will find it hidden, down a small, narrow, pasaje (passageway) but you won’t find it if you don’t pay attention to where you are going.

This authentic Andalusian tapazeria is always busy with locals and tourists alike and is reputedly the oldest tapas bar in the Marbella area.

The bar area inside is very traditional, beautifully decorated, with many photos with bullfighting scenes and artifacts covering the walls.

You could say, it is like arriving back to the 1970s, the food is very good and is cooked to order by two lady cooks in the open kitchen at the side of the bar.

You can have tapas at the bar, sit a a table, or barrel, in the small bar area. There is also, a more formal restaurant upstairs, if you prefer. They have an excellent wine selection, including many sherries which are on display behind the bar.

Over a few visits, we tried the following dishes.


Boquerones de Donisti (unusually, served slightly warm).

Tosta de Sardina Ahumada (smoked sardines on toast).

Fritas de boquerones con límon, calamares and gambas.

Langostinos al ajillo (garlic prawns).

Ratatouille con huevo frito (ratatouille with fried egg).

From the specials board, cocochas (deep fried, battered hake cheeks)

and rabo de Toro.

This was all washed down with a glass of Albariño and


Fino en Rama and a Monteagudo Cream Sherry.

0r a Palo Cortado Gran Barquero.

This is a small intimate venue and great value for money. All of the food top notch.

The staff were efficient and friendly, including the owner/chef María José, who says it is essential to try her famous and highly rated salmorejo.
