Kaleja restaurant in Málaga

Kaleja, one-Michelin-star restaurant in Málaga

Named after the Sephardic (Ibero-Jewish) word for an alley, referring to its location in Malaga’s Jewish barrio, this restaurant is focused on the wood-fired grill. Dani Camero offers two tasting menus, each of four snacks, either six or nine courses, and three desserts, with optional pairings of either four or five wines. Flavours are inspired by his childhood, with a modern take on traditional dishes.

Kaleja was awarded its Michelin star in the 2023 guide.

Closed Monday.



As it says in the guide
The name of this restaurant is particularly apt (Kaleja is the Sephardic word for "alley;) given its location in Málaga’s Jewish quarter, just a few steps from the city’s Picasso Museum. The first thing that will strike you as you walk through the door is the subtle aroma of smoke, a key feature that sets this restaurant apart. Here, chef Dani Carnero has gone for a modern take on dishes of old, working with the heat of his wood-fired grill to create what he calls "candle cooking" – a style of cuisine that revives tastes and flavours from his childhood, in many cases connected to traditional Andalucian recipes that have been brought back from the brink. These are served on two tasting menus (Memoria and Gran Menú Memoria), on which every dish is teeming with powerful flavours and has a story behind it.
