Found this place after being very disappointed by a restaurant very close. It was busy but we managed to get a seat inside. Located on the beach front, a prime location. Waiters were generallybattentive, even though it was a super busy lunchtime. Ordered some tapas, the pimentos Fritos were huge, great crispy whitebait and a large house salad. Couldn't have... More

My cousins , partner and myself went down here for dinner . Sitting outside on the beach with the waves rolling beside us was an idyllic back drop . The service and quality of food were both excellent .

Great evening, 20 women aged between 27 and 57 all out for Dinner. Fantastic atmosphere right on the beach. Everyone was satisfied and very happy. Great friendly restaurant, which I personally have been going to for 15 years!

Visited twice this week and the food and service was outstanding considering it was so so busy. Best to arrive early for lunch during this busy season and a reservation is advisable to guarantee the shade if thats what you want. The Sangria Blanca is the best on the coastline and the new addition of one gambon is in fact... More

Popped in to enjoy a relaxing day on the beach, great... More

This beach bar enjoys a fabulous location on the newly constructed boardwalk which must bring many more customers to it. However it fails to impress and needs a shake up. Food is pretty average and staff not particularly helpful .Toilets are dreadful. A shame.

We love Mijas and all there is to do. El Bombo is a lovely location, but it let down mainly by the food in the other restaurants being better. There is nothing particularly bad about this please, but equally nothing amazing about it. That said it's always busy.
