Aside from those found in the town of Velez-Malaga, restaurants are also conveniently located in nearby Torre del Mar - just a 10-minute ride away.
Before and after tours to the Fortaleza, the convents, and churches, take time to savor good food and beverages in the these Velez-Malaga restaurants. You'll notice that there's enough variety to satisfy European, Asian, Latin, and American appetites.

The southern part of town has a relatively lesser number of restaurants. However, since it's also the part of Velez-Malaga that's closest to Torre del Mar, visitors will find an even much wider range of choices there.
Some notable establishments within the southern territorial boundaries of the town are: El Horno (pizza), Telepizza (fastfood), Los Migueles (Spanish cuisine), and Romo (chicken BBQ). If you proceed southward to the edge of town, you'll find Cantina Mariachi, where you can enjoy Mexican food like tacos, burritos, fajitas and more.
You should then be very near Torre del Mar. Being a coastal town in Costa del Sol, Torre del Mar is understandably more frequented by tourists. It is therefore expected that you'll find more dining establishments there. La Cueva, Marisqueria El Yate, Howards Bar, Celebraciones Parque del Rio, Caramba, Salmon, and Fraguas are just a few of the most popular restaurants located in this bustling coastal community.
Finally, if you're not yet sure what kind of dining experience you're looking for, then we recommend you go straight to El Ingenio. It's halfway between Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar, along Autovia A-7 (or Autovia del Mediterraneo). You can't miss it. Primarily a shopping mall, El Ingenio houses a nice selection of restaurants on its top floor.
