Respond to Review of El Piano - Malaga
Review: El Piano is small; very small. However, the food packs a punch that makes it worthwhile. I first came across this family-run, dual-nationality organisation in York, UK. That is a fully-fledged restaurant, whereas this is more of a take-away eatery. The style of food is similar - tapas in small or large 'boats. It is exclusively vegan and the food is diverse and tasty. The basil pasta and the banana curry were particularly flavoursome, but the rest was great too. I went with two non-vegans who eat so much, they were full, which is as good a recommendation as any. Places like this, where the emphasis is on friendly service and healthy uncompromisingly vegan food need to be supported but I do so in the confidence that unless you are particularly picky, you'll love the food on offer here.

You are right that there is more emphasis on TAKE AWAY - you may have noticed in Spain that this is a much more developed sector of the food industry with many people eating with us quite regularly in this way.
The challenge in any performance art is to deliver a minimum standard EVERY TIME - and not just play a blinder once in a while. We are lucky to have so many family members involved who are very keen on quality - our senior QUALITY CONTROL person is in York but he recently visited Målaga and Granada and was pleased with what we are producing. And before you get the impression that he is in a suit and descends occasionally to grace us with the equivalent of a white glove test, he spends most of his Saturdays chained to the food service counter in York - so say hi to him when next you are there!
