La Gamba Dorada

Welcome to la Gamba Dorada

Feel free to look around!


La Gamba Dorada it dates back to 1975, when two humble and entrepreneur families from a small village of Axarquía (Almarchar), settle down in Vélez-Málaga and started our restaurant history.
Some of years of effort and working later, the two families decided to split from each other, staying as sole owners of the business, the marriage of Antonio Romero Gálvez and Ana Padilla Lucena whom, together with their children, run the family business.
In 1993, after a severe illness, Antonio Romero Gálvez died, moment when his wife take in charge of the business, along with her children for two hard years.

Antonio Miguel Romero Padilla, son of the owners, take care of the business since then to the present. Later, in 1998, the business is completely reformed, managing to reach a greater number of clients by modernizing the place.

In 2011 La Gamba Dorada was burnt, because of that the place was to be reformed again. In that moment the original place was joined to another one, enlarging the kitchen and opening our take away store, where with the same kitchen and quality they offered a new service to the customers, the possibility to take home homemade food and fried fish.

Since 2011 to the present, our business enlarged two times with new rooms, located on the same street, giving place to the restaurant we know actually.

In conclusion, we are deeply indebted to our customers, who have continuing choosing us day by day, to the great family that we form with our waiters and cooks team and with all the family and friend who have supported us through thick and thin.

Mostly seafood tapas (the clue's in the name of the restaurant) in a brightly lit room. The metal stools are a bit... uncomfortable but it encourages conversation - very Spanishread more
