The Genius of Cervantes

Granted, Miguel de Cervantes was a genius. Although “Don Quixote” is not the easiest read, especially in the original Spanish, it is brilliant. However, when I talk about genius today, I’m talking about the genius of Meson de Cervantes, the restaurant in Málaga.

After four months, we finally managed to get back to Meson De Cervantes for another meal (click here for last time). Long-time friends Steve and Hector are in Málaga for one of their regular visits and we had the pleasure of their company. I’ll take it from the rear with the photos and begin with our departure.

(Click the images to make your mouth water… well, except perhaps for the photos of me.)
