There's good reason why there's a small sign outside this place that reads, 'best tapas 2015'. The deliciously prepared plates of tapas that were delivered to our table were creative & really really good. The menu is extensive and every dish we ordered was a winner. Mijas is a lovely 'white' village sitting above the coastal towns dotting the Costa... More

We have been visiting Bodega el Placer since it opened and it never fails to disappoint! The service is always brilliant and staff are on hand to make recommendations for food or wines! The tapas is the best in Mijas - and there are a lot of excellent tapas places in the village. We would highly recommend a visit to... More

A great location in a narrow street. Very small and cosy. The food is amazing! We asked for 5 tapas of the owners choice. They were that good we ordered another 4! More contempary in presentation than is the norm but excellent value for money. Wine choice is excellent. A very popular place so maybe reserving is the way advisable

Since visiting Spain many years ago, an authentic, high quality tapas experience has alluded us. We were delighted to spot this hidden gem in a side street in Mijas. A fantastic assortment of dishes, well cooked and presented. Efficient and attentive staff. Visited twice although we were staying over 20 miles away. Would highly recommend and will be returning on... More

We went here while holidaying in Mijas and it was fantastic. Great food with a great range of taste. However the only slight let down was the amount you got, although it was tapas there was barely enough of one thing to share between more than one. But still very cheap for 4 people and 18 tapas with 2 jugs... More
