Visited today with a group of 7 (youngest 5, oldest 70) and we had a fabulous time! Staff were so welcoming and very knowledgable about the process of chocolate making. We were thrilled with the whole process, it was so simple but such good fun for all and fantastic chocolate to eat afterwards! We were also allowed to leave our purchase behind the counter so it didn’t melt in the sun! Highly recommended for all.

Visited here yesterday to see if the quality and flavour was as good as our last visit to Mijas just over a year ago. We weren't disappointed, staff were excellent and very friendly. Both the sorbets and ice cream were beautiful, difficult to choose what to have. A tub with 2 scoops cost just under €5 , so reasonably priced for the quality of the product. We'll most certainly be returning to try more.

Just off the main square in Mijas. A little tiny place, a working chocolate factory with lots of ancient machinery. A really enjoyable tour and you get free chocolate samples and can make your own as well. A little gem, a very unexpected find.

Was strolling past this small factory/shop and got invited in for a free guided tour (by Debbie), didn't expect much other than a sales pitch but was really surprised at the time and attention we were given, found the information and the tour (which lasted about 15 minutes) really enjoyable. The free samples were very good - No heavy sales pitch (but we did buy some good quality chocolate). If you are in Mijas, it's in a corner of the main square and I would recommend a visit.
