Most Cartama restaurants can be found in the town's main communities: Cartama Pueblo, its oldest part and the center of town, and Estaction de Cartama (the railway station). The two communities are situated in opposite sides of the Autovia de Guadalhorce (A-357), with Pueblo in the south and Estacion up north. In many of these establishments you'll find delicious Spanish cuisine, some international dishes, and lots of tapas.
Here are some of them:
Restaurante Berrocal - Located in Los Mondeños, Estacion de Cartama, this restaurant houses two large areas where you can hold events like weddings, baptismal celebrations, birthdays, debuts, parties, business affairs, and so on. The two spacious areas are called the Axarquia Hall and the Nerja Room.
There's a large parking space outside, with the mountain and the town both providing a scenic backdrop. Also outside is a playground with slides and swings where your kids can play while you wait for your food to be served.
Meson Tintero Campero - Along Km 2 Carratera Cartama-Churriana, you'll find this nice establishment that serves a wide range of fresh seafoods like shrimps, Malaga monkfish, swordfish, sea bass, squid, anchovies, lobsters, clams, and more. They also serve pork tenderloin, lamb chops, grilled rabbit or chicken, salad and of course, the Spanish specialty - paella.
Outside, you'll be greeted by a rustic facade with clear, sliding glass windows. The interior of the restaurant is rural-inspired, with the walls adorned with different kinds of farm tools. There are fireplaces set in strategic locations to keep you warm.
La Bodega - This restaurant, along Calle de Miguel Berrocal, is a great place to feast on Iberian pork and beef. They also serve quality cheese from sheep and goat, plus a fine selection of the best wines in Malaga. The cozy atmosphere inside, which can accommodate up to 50 guests, is lit by elegant chandeliers.
