Mijas is a hard place to find good food establishments. This places however is a true asset. There are a lot of regulars in every night which is always a positive sign and both evenings we visited the food was superb. It’s a small place so very personal. The menu is all the things you would expect from a traditional Spanish restaurant and the taste is fantastic. Well worth a visit.

Can’t think of a better place to sit and eat a lovely evening meal. Good value with excellent service. Fresh fish dishes and best. Watch for dolphins if your very lucky you might catch a glimpse

Once again tripadvisor, failed us and led to a restaurant with a nice view but really bad/mediocre food. Really high prices and mediocre food. If you have a choice i adwise you to take it.

We were a party of six, three generations. Most of us ordered from the lunch menu, but others a la carte. We were not disappointed, (as we are so, so often when we eat out!). Very attentive service from the owner. Everything arrived on time, as ordered, delicious, good portion sizes. Everyone was very satisfied happy with their meal. Husband loved the steak and sauce, but salads and fish and calamari were also very good, as were the deserts. Nice wines. My parents liked the quiet atmospheric music, we loved the sunny terrace and superb views across the hills and town. We have not been this pleased eating out for a long time and, overall, it was by far our favourite meal on our holiday. Felt like we were in safe hands here and that it would be consistently good. I never write reviews but felt compelled to after this great experience. Would definitely recommend!
