Unexpected Surprise!

This place was very full, we were lucky to get a table. The inside was modern and trendy with music playing. We only had about 45 to get something to eat. I asked the waiter how long the food takes and he said about 5-10 minutes --- well he wasn't kidding! We ordered 3 plates of raciones and they... read more

Visited with a party of 9 - very accommodating in such a small space. Food was delicious, served hot and beautifully presented, Very reasonable with tapas dishes varying from €2-4.50, great selection of food, only disappointment was patatas bravas turned out to be chips with bravas sauce!

this place is amazing - they have a vast array of tapas, all beautifully presented in Masterchef style - sit outside at one of the oak barrel tables and people watch while enjoying some of the best tapas you will find on the Costa del Sol.

We come here very often and the tapas are great. It's a small and busy place but always with a smile on their face. You need to try this quality tapas place. A must.

We chanced upon this place when looking for a place to have something to drink. I simply cannot emphasize how much you just HAVE to visit this, if you're around Mijas. First off, a kind, humble but professional man welcomes you with a smile but is not at all pushy. If you enjoy gin tonics, I heavily recommend the house... More

Our tour guide in Malaga recommended this restaurant - thank you Victor at We Love Malaga! Situated on a quaint side street in beautiful Mijas. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Every dish was delicious. Grilled prawns with salt, heads and peel on. Tender lamb cheeks. Grilled pork ribeye strips with green peppers. Still dreaming of this fabulous meal...
