We have always enjoyed this restaurant ever since our first meal there 6 years ago and especially love sitting outside watching the sun go down whilst enjoying their delicious... More

The food is very reasonable and the... More

This is a small restaurant in the Main Street of La Cala de Mijas Costa del a Sol. It has a lovely interior with lots of artefacts on the walls. It also has an outside seating area. Very good service and excellent menu. Try the Sole as a fish dish a la plan ha. Not cheap but value for money.... More

I was here with two of my best friends and we had a fabulous time. The food throughout was excellent and I only wish we had time to go again before our holiday ended. The service was very good, attentive and friendly. All the food was cooked to perfection and I am quite fussy so don't understand some other reviews.... More
