Great location and views over Mijas. Seafood starter and roquefort entrecôte was lovely and came just as requested. Wine list was broad with a magnificent rare Campillo Rioja 2004 on offer. Went down very well. Lovely staff and service. Would go again without a thought.

We had a lovely meal here to celebrate a friend's birthday whilst on holiday in Mijas. The service was great - very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious - most of us had either a starter or main from the chef's specials - with a very sensibly priced children's meal. Wine list was great and the complimentary after dinner digestif (juniper berry with aniseed) with apple for the kids was a really nice touch. Would return here again.

Was a lovely setting outdoors, the food was excellent and nice friendly service.

Really enjoyed the evening here, we thought it was a bit pricey but out first meal out so we will see and compare - 2 scampi starters (shared), 2 duck and 2 fillet steak with sauces, half bottle of rose wine (Sav' Blanc I think) plus 2 75cl bottles of sparkling water, €133!

Find your way to this small restaurant up a narrow flight of stairs. In the summertime you can enjoy the nice terrace overlooking the town hall sqaure towards the sea.

We keep coming back when we are i Mijas for some of our favourite dishes bocherones al limon, escalopine milanese, stroganof- and the best crepes flambe. I have eaten crepe suzette in restaurants all over the world. After I had them here I have stoppe. Eating them anywhere else. These are the best!

We visit Mijas regularly and always have our best meal here. If they had better choice of potatoes (rather than fries) I would have marked food as 5/5. Excellent family run restaurant.
