Once was enough. Pretty mediocre everything. There are a few Traditional Spanish cafes nearby which have twice as good food for half the price

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

An excellent traditional spanish restaurant .
Excellent value for money and a good choice.

We had Gambas Pil Pil and Prawn cocktail, very tasty and lots of prawns.
We ordered the Meat platter for 2 and were slightly concerned when a plate of raw meats turned up, we thought it was capaccio ? However a roasting hot stone appeared at the table and you can cook to your own taste. A great idea and only in Spain as the UK would have a field day with the Health and Safety nonsense. Meal was excellent and fantastic value for money. 2 starters, main course and a bottle of Rioja came to 50 euros.

Lovely staff and I would definetely visit again.

We ended up again on \xmas day as it was still open,
Again very attentive and pleasant staff.
We oredered the roast chicken and a bottle of wine with a sparkling water, again great portions and came to about 35 euros. Excellent . Highly reccommend a visit.

“Microwave cooking - Never again !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

Decided to try this restaurant because our initial choice had a wedding reception in full flow. The Grill de La Cala is situated in the centre of Mijas Costa alongside various other restaurants. You have the opportunity to either sit outside `Al Fresco´ with plastic tables and chairs or inside in the main room which is open with large patio doors with wooden furniture. The first alarm bell was that the restaurant was quite empty which should have given us our first clue. The drinks came quite quickly as well as our starter which was a variation on various Chorizo sausages ........well when in Spain. Our starter was presented in a small blackened frying pan with 6 small sausages. We were given a bread basket which had just 2 small pieces of toasted bread. Two of the sausages were round black puddings which were dry and very well cooked. I believe that the frying pan was for decoration only and was not used to cook the food. The main course was Pork filet sautéed in Garlic and Herbs. It arrived on a cold plate with French fries and vegetables. The vegetables were stone cold and the meat had been cut (not scored) in various places. The meat had quite obviously been heated up in a microwave and had been cut to check if the meat was cooked. It was hard and micro waved through because the meat was the same colour on the outside as the centre. This restaurant receives only one star simply because we did not have to pay for the meal, extremely disappointed.
