The aroma is so inviting. They grill the steaks back there.

I think they have more seating upstairs..

If you ever desire a great steak while  in Malaga, l can definitely recommend one. It’s called “The Grill Club”. This wonderful eatery is located in the Centro district of Malaga. The centro is full of little narrow streets packed with shops, tapas places, outdoor cafes and hawkers selling roasted chestnuts. It is just a stone’s throw from the Thyssen museum. We had first spotted it a couple of weeks prior to visiting.

Then, we had been looking for a tiny little Mexican restaurant, which we found closed on that particular day. The picture outside had caught my eye. The look on the cow’s face made me laugh so much. It was sort of defiant, angry, and intimidating, all at the same time. I think it struck a chord with me because that is a look l used to have on my face as a kid when l was frustrated, meaning my parents had disciplined me for something or the other. It’s like it’s saying “Piss off and go get your frigging steak elsewhere”.

We chose to visit for our anniversary dinner, eight years of marriage. We were not disappointed with the food, it was fabulous. The restaurant is decorated in a shabby chic style, with distressed furniture, all in a white and silver. It was all very inviting. They have a full wine bar. We were seated by a very nice waitress who practiced her English on me, while l attempted the same with her in Spanish.

House red wine. Delicious!

Pork rolls with mango chutney

We ordered the house red wine. It was absolutely fantastic. I should have asked the name. I have no doubt the same generous glass of wine would have cost at least $9 in an American restaurant. They brought out a basket of bread, salt and extra virgin olive oil. It was really good. I would have eaten more, but l did not want to ruin my appetite. We ordered pork rolls with mango chutney as a starter. Wow! Just wow! It was absolutely delicious. Had l known how big the main plate would be, l probably wouldn’t have ordered it. Nonetheless, we finished every last crumb.

For the meal, we both had the Argentinean Steak, his medium rare, mine medium. It came with fries, a piece of garlic bread that was to die for..really! and a salad, all  on a huge wooden plate. It was a very rustic meal. A really big portion. I was pretty full at this point, so l did not finish my steak. I liked mine, but l did not love it. I usually have my steak medium rare as well, but my tummy was a bit distressed from traveling, and thought it safer. It was a little too “done” for me. He loved his, and finished the whole thing.

The music and the atmosphere is really nice and romantic. I highly recommend this place for a special meal. They also offer other things on the menu, not just steak. Our bill came to €60 for the 2 glasses of wine €3 each, starter (€9) and 2 steaks at €21 each. A bit pricy, but l think at lunch time, the same steak, only smaller of course is €13. All in all, it was worth it for us. A special day, a special dinner! We plan on visiting soon to sample other stuff… 🙂

  1. Wow looks amazing all around! And nice presentation too. I admit I’d have a hard time not eating too much of that bread. I love a good artisan bread with olive oil. I could live off that.

    • And you know l gorged on it 🙂 . Had l known how big the meal was going to be, l would have skipped the appetizer and saved it for next time. The bread was so so good with the rock salt and olive oil, as was the lone garlic bread that came with the steak. One of the best l’ve ever had.

  4. Happy anniversary! I’m happy to see that you had such a tasty feast for the special occasion.

    I am also glad that it’s probably the first time ever for me that I read your food articles with a full tummy – otherwise I’d be drooling all over my keyboard. Although I must admit that the garlic bread made me swallow a big chunk of air :))

    • Hah hah! Thanks C. Wait till you see the post today.. 🙂 . You have just made me realize that it will be the third post in a row with food front and center. I will blame that on the hubby who has been dreaming of food..lol! Make sure you read it while your stomach is still full 🙂

  5. I absolutely love places like that…”unassuming” just as you said…yet are a jewel of a find inside! The look on the cow’s face is the same that I have on Monday mornings >:(!! I don’t eat steak a lot because…to be honest…I would eat it ALL of the time if I could. But, I try not to punish my body too much. Though the past 3 months would not validate that whatsoever. That Argentinean Steak looks absolutely out of this world! Great…let’s go, Kemkem! Your husband is a handsome fella btw… 🙂

    • I love, love, love the look on that cow’s face! I told him we had to eat there. Everyone passing by wondered why we were cracking up! I love a good steak every now and then too, especially fresh from the butcher. The one thing l don’t like here is the hamburger. It is always a mixture of beef and pork..double yuck, but it is an incentive not to eat it. Let’s go then! I will pass on your compliment, just what he needs.. a bigger head.. 🙂

  6. Happy Anniversay kemkem. I wish you both 80 more years of marriage. Whoop! Whoop! 🙂 This meal looks really yummy. I’m not a big beef eater but I like the way they served the meal to you on a simple rustic board. I know I would have stuffed myself with all that bread as the bread looks the way I like it – crunchy! Poor cow though. I bet he knew he was for the chop. Chomp! Chomp!

    • Mmmmm…. 80?? I’m not sure if that is a blessing or a curse..LOL! , but thank you 🙂 . We did stuff ourselves with that bread. I would eat meat more often if those damn bastards hadn’t discovered that too much was bad for you.. Like what isn’t ??? 🙁
