Janette´s review of the hospital service at the Civil Hospital in Málaga:
Ok, I get that ‘variety is the spice of life’ and I also know that companies who give their customers a bespoke and personalised service survive longer than those who use a ‘one size fits all’ model! However, when it takes 30 minutes to order a cup of coffee and your brain is fried trying to understand what the difference is between an espresso, a macchiato, a pour over, a blend, a flat white and a frappe-cappa-cristiano-ronaldo surely you have to think: ‘OMG, life is too short for all these choices!’
Despite being a caffeine addict, I have to say that modern-day coffee drinking culture is really getting on my nerves. Thankfully, I’ve worked out that my taste in coffee is a ‘macchiato’ but now I have to listen to this: ‘’ Would you like your macchiato with full-fat, semi-skimmed, fat-free milk from a cow or a goat or a sheep, or perhaps you are lactose intolerant?’’ And, if that wasn’t enough, I’m now being asked if I want a picture of a dove, a flower, a heart or a giraffe on the top of my coffee. Seriously, I want to drink it, not decorate my flat with it.
No, no and absolutely no! I’ve finally ‘lost the will to live’ and I’m changing my drinking habits. It seems to me that ordering a yummy vodka tonic takes less time and it gives you the same ‘hit’ as a coffee. So from now on, I’m saying no to coffee and yes to vodka!
I can’t bear cooking, but I am really keen on eating and stuffing my face. I also like sharing information about must-do restaurants in Málaga.
Has anyone tried the top-notch food at El Tapy in the historical centre of Malaga? Well, if not, if I were in your shoes, I would make a plan to go there with your mates; you will definitely not regret it!
The service is second-to-none and the waiters are hot! As a vegetarian, I have to say I’m bored, bored, bored of Spanish omelettes, honeyed aubergines and a few tomatoes and onions mixed together with enough olive oil to sink a ship. So I was over the moon to have lots of vegetarian options when I ate at El Tapy the other week.
Moreover, if you are on a shoestring budget, this is the perfect place as it’s as cheap as chips, especially if you order the ‘daily offer’. In addition, I had a blast chatting to the owner.

I hate cooking, but I love to eat. I also like sharing information about great restaurants.
Has anyone tried the food at La Tapita in the historical center of Malaga? Well, if not, I would advise you to go. As a vegetarian I have to say I’m bored, bored, bored of Spanish omelettes, honeyed aubergines and a few tomatoes and onions mixed together with too much olive oil. So I was over the moon to have lots of vegetarian options at La Tapita.
I need to write a review and shout from the rooftops: ‘Go to La Tapita, you will not regret it’. It’s cheap as chips, especially if you have the ‘daily offer’, and I had a brilliant time chatting with the owner.
So anyway, how do you write a restaurant review? One recommendation is:
