Our top-pick of Spain: Málaga
Our top-pick of Spain today is Málaga, hometown to Picasso and Antonio Banderas. We love Málaga because, although it doesn't let dogs indoors in many restaurants, it is always sunny and hot, so you won't have a problem to sit outdoors with your dog in any place around the city even in December. We have selected our favourite local places.
If you are looking for a classic, the place a local would recommend you, this is your place. El Pimpi has plenty of tables outside where you can sit with your dog. You can eat there all the classics: Aceitunas, tortilla, chipirones, etc, a step away from Picasso’s birth house. Málaga was voted the happiest city in Spain, so you will get a great service anywhere in the city (and lots of smiles).
Petit Palace Plaza
This dog-friendly 4 stars hotel is located near the most emblematic street in the city, calle Larios. Although the restaurant area is not dog-friendly, they do have a great breakfast, once you arrive, they will prepare your dog a welcome box which includes food, treats, bowls and a bed.
Málaga has a very impressive promenade. The promenade houses cool outdoor cafes and the Pompidou Museum, which is a very special building, although not dog-friendly indoors, you can see this impressive building while listening to the waves of the sea. Málaga is also home to other museums like the Picasso Museum, Thyssen Museum and the Russian Art Collection.
Siete Semillas Organic Food
If you are looking to taste the newest Spanish cuisine, you should definitely try Siete Semillas, a new-concept restaurant in the heart of the city that serves high-quality organic dishes. The best of all? they are dog-friendly indoors.
