Respond to Review of El Piano - Malaga
by arde

Review: I visited El Piano in Malaga in Feb. 2013. It's hidden away on a small side street just off Plaza Merced. Like others have said, they have a cafeteria style "choose 4 items for 5.95 euro" option and a 3-item option for cheaper. The 4 items option was pretty good for a light lunch. The lady at the counter was very friendly and helpful - I speak maybe 3 words of Spanish and she spoke about as much English, but we managed to have some conversation :-) At least 2 of the 4 dishes I tried were really amazing - they had some kind of pan-fried carrot fritters, and a slightly spicy estofado. The other 2 were fairly good. The Indian-style cilantro chutney that came with the meal was surprisingly authentic, and she also served a pappadum with the meal.

Thanks for your comprehensive review. It's very helpful to us to read our reviews and thanks to HAPPY COW we learn a lot.

The pan-fried fritters are the biggest wheeze out., SO SIMPLE. A recipe from Bolivia all you do is grate carrots and chop the same quantitiy of spring onions or leeks. Add salt and a touch of sugar and then make a wet mix with rice flour and deep fry. That's it...Have a go and email us if you get in a jam with it...

We have seating for 20 outside now (just applied for permission for 2 more tables) and there is seating inside at the TINY bars...but it all gets filled up fairly to come before 2pm when you are almost certain to get a table...
