“Great bustling chiringuito with some very good dishes! Well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Mistral is great. Really good chuleton and vacio, the fish is excellent too, the salads feel a bit bland but overall this is a very good place for a nice meal. The staff is friendly and helpful, they have a lot to do so some patience is needed but this is normal I. The beach in July and August. Good wine list and a pleasant setting although a bit noisy if you are under the roof between the bar and the kitchen.

“Good but expensive beach restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The beach restaurant is placed opposite the 5* hotel Gualpin and maybe because of this position the prices are high.
The food are good so if you have the money this is the place.
We got 'Ensalada exotico', 'Meji marinera' and 'Vitello tonnato'. As desert 'Creme brulle' and 'Helado'.
Everything had a good taste. A big bear € 7.- and a small € 4.-. A glass of wine € 5.-.

“Fabulous beach bar with great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We hit this place within hours of arriving in Puerto Banus and just kept returning! It had the advantage of being convenient to our apartment but the food was excellent, the maitre'd is really on the ball and we just loved eating on the beach just a stroll from our sunbed!
It gets very busy from 2pm onwards so its worth booking a table - likewise the sunbeds especially on a Sunday. The service is swift and efficient and the staff well trained.
The sunbeds also have waiter service.

“Beautiful and noisy beach restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Although we had made a reservation for five on the beach which was confirmed, it was not possible to have a table in the sand when we arrived. But the service is very good as is the food. Take into account that there is a lot of nervous activity going on as you should expect in a Spanisch beach restaurant
