“The best pizzas on the Costa del Sol!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

Wow, we have now been back to Altitude at least 5 times and the food and service has been fantastic each time! We always received a warm welcome from the owners, Nick and Sam, they are lovely, and the other staff (including Mark and Kian) are friendly, funny and attentive. Its a perfect place to go for dinner, the menu is varied and the portions are HUGE! The pizzas are the best I have tasted on the coast and the sharing platter is absolutely mmmmmmmmmmmm! They also do 2 for 1 pizzas on Sunday and 2 for 1 burgers on Wednesday so well worth a visit even if you're on a budget. Can't praise this place enough, we have eaten at both restaurants up the hill in La Mairena and this far outshines its neighbour on all fronts! We returned to Altitude, as I said, 5 times.

Very tasty food across the board (apps, pizza, pasta, dessert) in a setting with a lovely view. Very gracious hosts.

“Beautiful area, lovely view, good food, welcoming atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

Visited twice in July 2011, really good to get away from the hustle and bustle, only minutes (well maybe 15) and you up in the mountains sitting on a verandah looking out at a panoramic view of the mountainside and coast. The food is really good actually, not fussy, just well cooked and tasty. Would thoroughly recommend it.

“No attitude at the Altitude Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2011

We visited in June 2011. What a view. Fantastic food and genuine welcoming service. Highly recommended.

Does anyone know if there is a local bus up to the restaurant, as no car.

“Very friendly with lovely pizzas.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2011

We have a holiday apartment in La Mairena and pop up to Altitude for pizzas every time we are there. The staff are friendly and eager to please, the pizzas are good and cocktails are a very acceptable addition to their menu.
