Delicious Seafood

It was great! The view was outstanding along with the food. We had paella and sea bass that was outstanding. Many at our table like the pil pil, but it was a spicy tomato-based marinade that I didn't like as well. The desserts of ice cream (really a sorbet) was much better than in the US and my... read more

We were using the new Sendo Literal (Coast Path or Boardwalk) and decided to have a quick lunch here today. We shared a plate of Pimiento Frito (Fired Peppers) which were very well done and nicely presented then I had the Pez Espada (Sword Fish) and my wife had the Meluza Plancha (Hake Griddled). Both dishes were really fresh and... More

Great fish, great sangria, great views of the sun going down over the beach. Relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Not the place to go if you want high class silver service - but fabulous for a relaxed & pleasant visit - day or evening

Wonderful little place right on the beach - you are literally dining whilst looking at the sea. Menu was very varied and has a good choice ranging from sandwiches and egg & chips to 3 course meals including steaks, paella and various fresh fish. Service was a little slow but then they were absolutely packed with a mix of Spanish... More

We have been coming to this area for some years and although we have stayed from Porto Cabopino to Fuengirola, we always make a bee-line for this Merendero now. The food is both traditional and good with barbecued sardines and other fish cooked at the back by the chap who collects the rent for the parasols and sun beds! Great... More

We have been coming to El Bombo for over 20 years and have seen their family grow and develop the business . The food is excellent value and of good quality using fresh local ingredients. The location is second to none and the beach is groomed regularly by the Mijas council workers and also by staff at El Bombo. It... More
