    El Balneario awaits you in Malaga city in an unbeatable location just beside the Mediterranean Sea and the historic Baños del Carmen, which once were a thermal area.

    This restaurant offers you a wide range of typical dishes from Malaga and Spanish cuisine with the personal touch of its chef, Jaime Adolfo, halfway between tradition and the avant-garde.

    Try one of the tasty rice dishes that populate El Balneario's menu: a homemade soupy rice Land and Sea, a delicious black soupy rice or a juicy fire wood rice. But if you are in Costa del Sol, and more specifically in El Balneario, you cannot let escape its fish from the Bay of Malaga: clams Marinera sauce, fried octopus, fried rosada with alioli, anchovies with lemon... And of course the famous fish in this area: the “espetos”.

    Before tasting those culinary creations, enjoy some of its varied starters, from a fresh salad to a few chicken tears, or an extraordinary tataki tuna or a fabulous octopus Galician style. If you are with children, El Balneario offers you an extensive children's menu and a succulent dessert’s menu. But for a good sweet product the age doesn’t matter.

    Of course, do not miss the opportunity to accompany your meal in El Balneario without tasting some of the wines from its elaborate menu.

    Take advantage of this incomparable location to enjoy views of the Mediterranean Sea from the sunny terrace of El Balneario, open from Thursday to Sunday. The local adapts completely if you want to celebrate a party: weddings, communions, company dinners, product presentation dinners... And keep an eye on the restaurant’s agenda to enjoy the live concerts that take place in the restaurant.

    Certainly, all events pass by El Balneario.
