This cosy restaurant is located in Torremolinos and is highly recommended. The restaurant offers the guarantee of good wine and food, a charming atmosphere and very friendly staff. Normally we only write about city breaks, but today we make an exception and move about 15 km away from Malaga’s city centre to the Carihuela area of Torremolinos and introduce you to La Taberna de Tito Juan.Back in the ‘70s Torremolinos was a very popular destination among tourists, but since then a lot has changed. The town is now very far from the good old days and you can easily see that the economic crisis has taken a huge impact on the village.
One of the places that still keeps the flag flying high is the charming little restaurant La Taberna de Tito Juan in La Carihuela. We first visited the place in 2007 and ever since then we have returned often because of three good reasons: tasty food, reasonable prices and, above all, very service-minded staff.
Tito Juan, which means Uncle Juan in English, is the owner of the restaurant and although he might physically resemble Don Corleone from the Godfather films, he is extremely nice and you can tell that he sincerely wants his customers to enjoy their visit throughout. His lovely wife is the driving force in the kitchen and together they produce a fabulous mix of quality food and a good atmosphere.
The restaurant itself is not very big and the only place to sit is at the bar. The bar is extremely cosy and offers a tasty view of the many exciting tapas on the counter. The food is classic Spanish and you will immediately want to taste all the dishes. If you order a drink, it costs € 2 and comes with a tapa. The restaurant offers larger portions as well.
The La Taberna de Tito Juan offers a small patio at the entrance and there are also tables set up outside in the sun if you wish. The informal atmosphere makes you feel at home.
You can visit La Taberna de Tito Juan on Calle Francia s / n, 29620 Torremolinos. The train from Malaga centre goes straight to Torremolinos and takes about 20 minutes.
