Will definitely go back

Just jumped in for a quick beer and tapas; wish I could have stayed longer. The tapas I had were really good and the atmosphere lively, just what one would look for in a bar. There were a lot of locals which says a lot for a place too.

What can I say? I love my food and as much as I give good reviews for lovely food and great service the underlying theme is I know I can cook better. I am not being a big head by the way! The tapas in here is cooked by a creative who loves food - and Spanish food- and someone... More

They serve really tasty tapas in this modern bar. I recommend the grilled mushrooms and the small grilled peppers. Service was a little slow when we visited on a Sunday evening, even though there weren't many other customers. Don't let that put you off though, as it's definitely worth a visit.

A small modern bistro type tapas restaurant in the hillside pueblo of Mijas. A great selection of authentic food with a modern twist prepared and presented beautifully by friendly and welcoming staff. Also an extensive selection of Spanish wines at reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit!

We were recommended el placer by a local and it was superb. The Iberian ribs were outrageously good but the duck a l'orange was the business. If you go to Mijas, go here!

Although small and crowded, their friendly staf doesn't show off the're busy. Nice suggestions for both tapas and wines. Once you have eaten there, you understand why it is so crowded.

We were in Mijas in spring so the weather can be changeable. The Sunday we were here it was a little dull so a tapas lunch seemed ideal. This bar is situated in the heart of Mijas in one of the tiny streets which adds to the atmosphere. We had quite a few small beers and in between spread over... More

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 were... More

A hidden gem, this small place in a fine little narrow street, serving an excellent tapas. Highly recommended, fine service and great really food.
