My 'local' when I am fortunate enough to be in magical Mijas Pueblo. Situated in the heart of the old town it has genuine Spanish ambience to the extent that it has encouraged me to learn more Spanish in order to get deeper into their relaxed and friendly lifestyle! Don't take this as discouragement though, if you do not speak Spanish, you will still get a friendly welcome. For any desperate to get therir emails, free internet connection is available - just ask for the contrasegna.

Authentic Tapas, rustic and very well prepared on the fly.
It is more of a bar than a restaurant.
Inside only.

You just have to try it. So Spanish, great to try out your language skills but happy to communicate by rubbsh hand signals too. Food yummy, especially paella (order in advance) and patatas bravas but always save some for me cos it is the highlight f my year!
