Description: El Mirlo Blanco is located in a delightful setting in a traditional whitewashed building typical of the Malaga region in the centre of Mijas. The restaurant can seat 60 diners in two dining rooms that feature wonderful open fireplaces, although in the warmer months diners can eat on the terrace with its splendid views over the town and the nearby mountains. The restaurant offers traditional Basque cooking using the finest seasonal ingredients. Its extensive menu changes with the seasons with specialities that include beef stew, baby squid or excellent cod, among many others. There is also a long list of wines and spirits. El Mirlo Blanco is a great choice at any time of year, whether you choose to sit by the fire on cold days or on its wonderful terrace in summer.

The food here is always a little special and usually excellent. This is Basque cooking at its best, with excellent seafood dishes. The service is friendly, but we found that the elderly lady (who is evidently La Patrona) who took our order didn't quite get it right, which could have been a matter of misunderstanding each other's Spanish accents. This is a special restaurant and more formal, with prices to match. A definite place to revisit.

This is just the ideal place to eat right in the middle of town yet protected from the bustle and passing traffic.
Really attentive owner and staff made sure everything was just right.
Mijas is just such a pretty place to visit with the panoramic view of the sea over Fungerola below
Will be back..
