Visited this restaurant at differing times of the day during our stay. The food was always of a high quality from an excellent menu on offer. The staff were all excellent and were always polite and very cheerful- nothing was too much trouble for them. Prices were reasonable.The roof top venue offered a refreshing break from the very high temperatures.... More

We found this by chance but a lucky chance for us as we had 2 grumpy, overtired kids who were trying to acclimatise to the heat after a long travel day the day before. Fresh orange juice and pancakes with Nutella soon had them sorted out. The waitress even noticed that they were struggling with the sun and pulled over... More

Wow ! What a lovely evening!! From the minute we arrived the staff made us all feel very relaxed and gave us plenty of time to have a drink and review the menu before choosing our starters and mains which was really nice as sometimes when visiting other restaurants, you do occasionally feel that it's all about getting people in...

We visited Bar Boru on 4 occasions during our stay in Mijas Costa. The food was fantastic and the service from Brian, Rosie and Kayleigh was excellent. All the food is freshly prepared and very, very good. The service is very attentive and knowledgable. The roof top location is great and there is often live music.

We visited Barboru several times for breakfast and dinner on a recent golfing holiday. There were 10 of us in the group so we usually rang in advance to allow them to set a table to accommodate us. The big advantage of this was not only did we get the table we wanted but also we could take advantage of... More

Went here in July 2015, Was exactly what we had been looking for. What made the experience even better was the Staff, If you are looking for a Value for money meal and Friendly staff in Calahonda then look no further.
