“Steak at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

have been coming to this restaurant for many years and it just gets better.A complimentary glass of bubbly greats you normally with a roaring fire in the background.(allways try and go on a cold winters night.The food quality is out of this world along with a great wine list.Be careful not to let your appetite to run away with you as you can easily run up a large bill.Our bill for 4 was 150 euros but worth evey penny.As we are members of Dona Loa it would be nice if we could get a "members discount"
As a special night out YOU CANT BEAT IT !!!!!

“"Delightful, Friendly Restaurant, Excellent Value."”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We first visited this restaurant a couple of years ago, whist staying at the nearby Dona Lola complex. I told the Proprietor we were looking for a good steak, he replied with a smile,"We have the best steaks on the Costa del Sol!" We have no reason to doubt it! We have always been extremely satisfied with his extensive menu.The Table d'hôte menu for €13 is amazing value and The friendly service makes for a very pleasant and relaxed occasion.

“Quality restaurant on Mijas Costa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is the third time that I have used this restaurant in Calahonda. For 20 Euros, we shared a very large and delicious "Entrecote" with all the trimmings along with a good quality bottle of Rioja. The quality of the food, the friendliness and the service are first class

“Friendly and Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Located next to the Dona Lola Resort this restaurant scores top marks for either an inexpensve meal or a ceebratory one.

We visited twice.

The first time we opted for their Menu del Dia priced at an amazing 13 Euros for three courses. There are half a dozen starters, six or eight mains and three or four desserts to choose from.
For the price, ours were fantastic, and also incuded a complementary glass of local fizz when the menus arrived. The local house wine (at under 2 Euros for a large glass) was remarkably good and the total bill wth coffee comfortably under 40 Euros.

Whilst there we spotted another pair of diners sharing the house speciality Chateaubriand. This looked superb and we booked a table for the next evening. The beef was as good as it looked. Perfectly cooked just as requested and you could have cut it wth a fork. With a shared starter, a bottle of the house red and a couple of coffees (absolutely no room for a pud) the bill was 55 Euros. The meat would have been plenty for three or even four people.

The husband and wife team who run the restaurant were very friendly and the decor as Spanish as you will find in this area. Highly recommended - but advisable to book. They get very busy.
