On entering El Potro you are given the choice of sitting ouside on the terrace or inside the restauant. both of which are very pleasant and airy. The staff are very friendly and offer a good selection of drinks from the bar, where you can drink if you dont want a meal.
An " early bird " menu is available at a very competative price for diners who would like to dine earlier in the evening as well as an a la carte menu which is varied and very tasty.
Children are welcome and for patrons who might want to play pool or watch sport, there is the sports bar downstairs.
All in all El Potro offer good food, a great selection of drinks and a loverly welcome.

We visited this restaurant, unfortunately, on our last day, wishing we had eaten there earlier.
Service excellent, and the Sunday carvery.... well, they have to be the best Yorkshire puddings ever and I am from Yorkshire. We tend not to want to eat anything from home but after all that tapas, craved something different!!! What a superb place.

On visiting Mijas Costa 5 times a year this restaurant is one we always return to. The food is excellent and at such a reasonable price. The portions are very generous. The staff are all very friendly and happy to help. We have tried most of the menu and have enjoyed it all. The desserts are excellent too.

After arriving at our villa in Campo Mijas, the owner recommended a local restaurant within a ten minute walk, which was very popular, had an excellent reputation and also had some complimetary wine vouchers for parties of four or more.

El Potro was simply excellent, it had a downstairs sports bar where many sports were available to watch, upstairs was the restaurant with seating inside and out. The restaurant was well presented, the service was excellent, as was the food. No matter how busy the restaurant was, the time between us ordering our starters and main courses remained consistent throughout our time dining there.

The menu catered for everyone, flexibility was provided if you required a small change to a meal, and the food was always well presented and hot. The average for a three course meal was between twenty and thirty euros, excluding drinks, which really was excellent value for money, the food was that excellent. Although i do like to try out several restaurants whilst away on holiday, our party of nine decided we would dine at El Potro most of our week as we were that pleased with the restaurant.
