Had a meal here Wednesday night and can honestly say it was the best meal I'd had in the week I was in La Cala. My wife and I both had Paella and it was to die for. I wish I'd discovered this on our first night rather than the last- but when I'm next in the area it'll be... More

Went here with friends who are regulars to the area.. The owner greeted them as old friends, as did the waiter.. All good signs! The meals for each of us were really tasty, well cooked and just what we wanted after a long day out sightseeing. Only slight gripe were the number of tables erected outside in what was a... More

This restaurant, run by a lovely Spanish family, is always busy so be sure to book in advance. One or two of the meal choices can disappoint but generally the food is excellent. What can't be faulted is the service. Always fast and always friendly.

I regularly eat in this very pleasant Spanish restaurant which is always very welcoming and rarely disappoints ! The staff are always excellent and very friendly and I would describe the food as good if not spectacular. The house paella is always freshly made and enjoyable as is the local fish ! Value you for money, good atmosphere and good... More

After reading rave reviews about the quality of the paella we had high hopes for El Cortijillo. Sadly we were very disappointed; the signs are there in la cala de mijas, a pokey stop-off on the costal road filled with restaurants stacked with Brits looking for a cheap taste of home. However we continued on, still encouraged by the incredibly... More

Ate here twice in a week as the food was up to its usual high standard as visited it once last year and really enjoyed it. Really enjoyed the paella and the portion was big with lots of meat and fish in it. Very friendly greeting and service

El Cortijillo is definitely our favourite restaurant and because of this we are regulars. Does this make this review a little biased? Maybe but if the food were bad, mediocre or average, I would not return and my review would reflect this so I'll be as honest as I can. The food is consistently excellent and caters for all. The...
