Bars & Restaurants

Over the past few years, the food choices at Malaga Airport have improved an incredible amount.  You now have Starbucks, Gambrinus, Cafe & Tapas, Burger King, Mums Kitchen and the Dani Garcia Deli Bar just to name a few.  The DeliBar does receive many mixed reviews, personally we quite like it, although we have only had breakfast there.  Dani Garcia is Michelin Star Chef who was born in Marbella,  He has several restaurants in Spain with the newest ones in Puente Romano Hotel, Marbella called Bibo and Con Tradition.

Many people complain about the prices of food and drink at the Airport, but isn´t every Airport expensive?      Another place where we regularly eat is the VIP Lounge, which is just basics like toast, olives, biscuits and pastries.  Personally we are not huge eaters at airports before boarding a flight.  We do see people 10am in the morning have burgers and beer and wonder how they do it?

Whether you are picking people up at Arrivals or having a length goodbye in the public Departures hall, there are once again many choices than before.   Just outside the Arrivals Halls is Gambrinus (Spanish snacks & tapas), which is a great place to head for where you can sit for a drink and a snack and also keep an eye on the bus stop at the same time, if you are catching a bus.  Gambrinus is also to open inside the terminal very soon!  We also quite like Starbucks too where you can sit inside or out.

If you are carrying water to the airport, do be sure to throw it away before Security!  Personally, before boarding the flight, we always grab a couple of bottles from the Vending Machines in the Departures Lounge, as sometimes you can wait a long time before you get served on the plane.  I also pack lots of snacks…just in case.

If you do have allergies / intolerances, whilst Spain is really improving with Gluten Free products,  there isn´t a huge amount of choice for other allergies like nuts, egg, sugar, so we would recommend you pick some snacks up before arriving at the airport.  If you need help about where you can buy certain foods, or any questions about eating at the airport, come and join us and thousands of others on our Facebook Page.
