Super selection of wines and interesting tapas! The friend Camembert, ciervo, mini lamb chops, and the tuna tartare are all favorites. It is a very small space on a quaint street. The play fantastic music and the staff are all helpful and friendly.

El placer has a fine selection of wine and the most original and tasty tapa's I have eaten in Spain. The owner is very warm and friendly as well as the staff. The atmosphere for me is what a wine bar should be, cozy and elegant.

My partner and I really like this little Bodega, the owners are fun and friendly, the food delicious and the drinks good! My only quibble is that it can be too busy most of the time, so there's not always a spot to sit down! But can't really make a complaint on that as the atmosphere is great. Great tapa's,... More

A lovely and typical tapas bar. Perched on barrels in a busy street, it was a great introduction to the tapas way! There's not much room here but it is fun to watch the world go by and enjoy a few tapas dishes too. There was the usual huge variety and amongst our group (of 6) we sampled a large... More

We were staying in Mijas with friends last week and went to this restaurant/bar for a birthday dinner. It is our friend's favourite in the old village. Situated in a very narrow street it has a small frontage and it is not particularly large inside. We sat at a small table on high stools outside in the street, under an... More

Stumbled across this fabulous little tapas bar in mijas tucked away in a back street, attractive frontage drew us in. Brilliant staff recommended our wine and they were spot on. We had a selection of tapas which the waiter choose for us and again absolutely great. Lovely background music, smartly decorated, fabulous atmospher, a birthday to remember. In fact it... More

Amazing food beautifully crafted and is both a pleasure to look at as well as to eat. The pork tenderloin with caramelised onion is pure joy :-) Very reasonably priced and worth a visit or three! Can't understand why this is not ranked number one on TA given some of the awful food it's up against!

We found this place on the recommendation of a local. Once discovered, we returned several more times. It's a tiny little bar with stools and barrels spilling out onto the streets. Most places you have tapa in will give you some plain bread with a random meat product on it, or similar, in a generic home cooked fashion. Whilst this... More

For a tiny bar in a tiny street the tapas we had was incredible - beautifully presented, speedily delivered and so tasty - the staff were great - so professional and helpful. The sangria de cava and Rioja just perfect - even the music was class! .... And then they showed us the kitchen! Smallest I have ever seen and... More
