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

A very nice and relaxing bodega in a small pedestrian area in Mijas pueblo. Popular spot that has a nice variety of wines. However I had a large steak which was mediocre at best. Good taste due to spices but extremely tough with lots of parts that I could only chew and then put on the side of the plate.

I love this place and eat here time after time. Small seating area outside on a busy street where you can sit and watch the world go by. Also very pleasant to sit indoors too. Staff are very friendly and attentive even when the place gets busy, as it often does. Tapas here is lovely, they have an extensive tapa... More
