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

Great little tapas bar with some good dishes. Small and lively. Nice staff and price very reasonable. 5 glasses of wine / 6-7 tapas / bread / olives all for 30eur. Would defo go back.

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

Good selection of tapas, well cooked. We had a light lunch here before going on to have our siesta and swim. Only fly in the ointment was the charge for bread which we had not asked for.

Tucked well up in the streets of Mijas, this tapas bar is great for both tapas and just leisurely drinks. Me and my partner spend a lot of time here when we visit Mijas (the last two years). Well worth a visit, the team work hard, the food is amazing and the owner and his family are lovely too.

I've been here twice with a family. I think that we tried everything from the menu and I love it. Food is great, full of taste, fresh. Stuff is very polite, service is great. That's pity that we didn't make any pictures. Place is busy. Book in advance. Highly recommended.

This was the most beautifully presented tapas I've ever enjoyed. Great flavours, the award winning pork was stunning and the aubergine was delicious......all washed down with a lovely glass or 2 of sangria!! Look forward to going back when we're next visiting the area. Prices reasonable, something for everyone
