Description: Opened in 1984 by Raffaele Morelli and his brother Vittorio, the Valparaiso Restaurant in Mijas, Malaga, on the Costa de Sol, has created a reputation for excellent food, memorable evenings and great entertainment. Beautifully presented international dishes, served in a magical setting with sea and mountain views from a flower covered terrace, has been the key to building a faithful clientele. With a complete entertainment programme, including dinner and dancing, live music, flamenco dancing and opera, the Valparaiso has something for everyone. The restaurant is also popular with visiting celebrities and local residents alike. Celebrities such as David Beckham, Bruce Forsyth and Sean Connery and many more have paid testimony to the restaurant.

“Top Quality Food, Service, and Service”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

From the moment we walked into the restaurant the experience was first class, with great service and beautiful surroundings.

the food didn't disappoint, and in addition to great quality the portions were very generous. I had the carpaccio and bresola, which was lovely, and it was as much as I could eat for a starter.

It can seem a bit 70's with the cabaret, but we liked it and really couldn't find anything to moan about at all. prior to and after the meal, the owner would come round and chat with the customers, asking them about their food and if things were going okay. There are beautiful views out down to the coast, and these get even better in the sunset.

It isn't cheap, but is not overpriced, and you don't get this type of quality unless you pay for it.

We will certainly go back if we come to this area again.

“Food, atmosphere, music”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Wonderful evening. Always welcomed and made to feel special. Great food may even be getting better. One special night during our recent holiday was so good that we had to push the boat out and go again.

We have been dining at Valparaiso for over 12 years and have never had a bad experience, the host Raphael and his staff are keen for you to have an overall special experience and continually succeed, the location, food and ambience are second to none and I would have no hesitation recommending this fabulous restaurant to anyone.

“AN EXPERIENCE NOT TO BE MISSED!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

For a real celebration, the Restaurante Valparaiso, on the outskirts of Mijas, Spain, is definitely somewhere not to be missed. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere utterly unique. You dine to the sound of a singer who/group which varies day by day, and may be from anywhere in the world, making for a truly unforgettable meal. The restaurant has been visited by a great many famous people from all corners of the Earth, making you feel famous, even if only for a day!
