For a little Spanish history mixed with some lovely traditional and modern Spanish cuisine, wine and hospitality, you should head into Velez Malaga and seek out El Convento. El Convento is oozing with character and old time charm. It is situated next to the Plaza del Carmen which of course is where you will also find the Teatro del Carmen theatre, right in the heart of the old town. Street parking in the old town is tricky but there is a large underground car park just a few steps from El Convento.
Outside, in the typical Andalusian street, big oak barrels draw you in to this nostalgic treat, and inside the decor is a fabulous mix of an old Andalusian meson and a modern dining venue. The food is creative and innovative whilst recognising the charm of old Andalusia. Whether you are just stopping for a drink at a barrel, tapas at the bar or a sit down meal in one of the dining areas, El Convento offers you a wonderful dining and entertaining experience.
The kitchen is open non-stop 7 days a week
