Best tapas in the Mijas area

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...

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.
