This tapas/gin bar is an absolute must visit,its small and you need to be there early or book in advance,the food is to die for and the gin,blimey,try a special,bit pricey but once you've had one you'll probably have another,very good,cant wait to return next year.

If you can manage to grab a spot here then do. Some great value and tasty tapa to be had. We had a lovely rosé blush and a few taps for around 14euro. I wouldn't recommend for a full meal but as a stop off while on a meander through Mijas it's Bob on!

Nipped in after a spot of shopping for a wine and beer, ended up staying for Tapas,it was delicious. We returned the following day and we were given free tapas with our drinks and the children were also given their own too which made them feel very grown up! Lovely little place defiantly will re-visit.

This is the second time at the wonderful hidden gem of a tapas bar in Mijas Pueblo. The food is superb, well prepared and beautifully presented. The wine list provides a good choice and the advice we received was spot on. If or rather when you get to opportunity to go you must try the tempura deep fried soft cheese,... More

We went here back in 2012 and had a great experience, now it seems to have lost the quality and requires a boost of new energy and passion with a smaller menu. We were excited to come back and found the exact same menu now two separate worn off sheets (used to be stapled together). Some tapas were marked as... More

We visited the place for an evening meal with our French guests. The owners, Mary and her husband are great hosts and they really love their profession. Their waiters work fast and are very professional. We started with mojitos (perfect) then ordered a few tapas like hamburgers, including veggie version, gambas pil pil, setas, some montaditos with various kinds of... More

Recommended by our villa owner and had a lovely eve there, fantastic tapas with lots of variety and some really tasty dishes and the most amazing special gin and tonic. Great Staff friendly and attentive and Mijas is a lovely location.

We were fortunate to have a seat without waiting as the restaurant seating limited. The variety of tapas great but some of our favorites were not available .. The house wine was good but we felt that the size of tapas was small but very expensive. The quality was good
