We stopped here for drinks after the walk from La Cala. I was surprised to see the place so quiet. We said we just wanted drinks so were put on the tables near the doors, it would have been nice to sit with the sea view really as there was only one other table occupied. Anyway, pleasant staff and... read more

Despite a bad experience and review several years ago we chose to revisit this restaurant at a friends suggestion. The restaurant has been downsized with a glass wall built around the outside decking area presumably to protect diners from the wind. The only problem is that on a sweltering hot evening this just increases the heat to another level. The... More

Top marks for food, service and location. I would most definitely recommend max beach to anybody visiting mijas. Food tasted and looked absolutely amazing, the staff were wonderful and the prices are extremely reasonable. Unfortunately we didn't discover max beach till our last evening, had we have done so earlier I would have happily eaten here every night . I... More

We came for our pregnant friends birthday and after an enormous wait were presented with yet another wait before being delivered poor food at rip off prices. We found the staff to be hard work for us, miserable and scared to smile. Will not be coming back and will not be recommending it. More disappointed as we are locals and... More

We only take reservations for big tables (more than six people) from 7pm, 8pm and after 10pm.And if we do this its only to be able to give a better service. If you like to give some comments they should be at least correct and impartial! You made a reservation for 11 persons at 8pm, but only 2 people appear... More

This restaurant overlooks the Med in an excellent spot. The menu is excellent with good variety. On Friday & Sunday nights they have a deal with fish where they give a very good bottle of white wine(not plonk) for every two meals, essentially free wine. The food is outstanding and .can definitely recommend the Dover Sole which was cooked to... More

The food is fantastic, the setting is even better, the bill is a bit of a concern, but when you are sitting on the decking listening to the waves and eating the amazing food, its very hard to complain or even leave the place. A definite must for lunch or dinner!

Sadly just got back from holiday but ate here twice and thoroughly enjoyed both meals :-) The staff are all, without exception excellent - and didn't make us feel silly for our poor Spanish! We had the fillet steak deal with wine which was good value and perfectly cooked to order. We had starters and cocktails and thought the bill... More

What a wonderful setting to enjoy an meal with family and friends. The atmosphere was friendly, the food good, but the best part was the view, so relaxing. For the area I would say the overall cost is a little high but if you are someone who believes in 'you get what you pay for' then don't miss the opportunity... More
