A little over a year ago the Matiz Malaga restaurant opened its doors and, in this short time, we can already affirm that, for us, it is the best restaurant in Malaga. We have many reasons for such an affirmation: the fantastic atmosphere of the place, its exquisite decoration, its ideal location, the fabulous treatment of all the staff … But if there is something that definitely makes us fall in love, it is the chef Marcos Granados’ kitchen. It is his art that defines Matiz as the best restaurant in Malaga.

And we are so fascinated by the gastronomic project of Chef Granados that today’s article is going to be dedicated precisely to talk about some of his dishes. It is impossible to talk about all of them, so we will only comment on the ones that have impressed us the most in our visits to this fabulous restaurant in Malaga Centro.
