This was one of the best restaurants we went to during our stay. Quite out of the centre of Mijas Costa, but ideal if you're staying in Mijas Golf. Delicious food, very helpful waitress. Not very scenic (on a main road), but free WiFi.

We saw an ad for this restaurant and thought we would give it a try. The food was delicious - plenty of it - too much meat in fact we had to take some home for the dog - and the head waiter David was very, very attentive and friendly. Desserts are all made by David's Mum and are delicious and the bill only came to 52€ for the two of us which was great value for money for the amount of food and drink we had. We will definitely be going back!

An exceptional steak house. The staff are very helpful and will give you a tour of the available steaks and then you can watch them being cooked to your taste. There are restaurants nearby with more pretension andpouch poorer food so give them a miss and try La Herradura. The wine is good quality with only a modest mark up by restaurant standards. I would recommend a table outside nearer the road rather than the children's playground. The grilled veg make a good accompaniment to the meal and our chips have always been fine. t
The dips you get with the starter are very good and you are tempted to fill up on bread but don't worry, the steak will melt in your mouth.

So it was Easter Sunday and as usual there was no parking to be found on the paseo, on our way out we passed El Cortijo, so we decided to drive back and give it a try.
First impressions were good, a nice clean open terrace and a rustic attmosphere, the Argentinian starters gave us a choice to try something different and were worth the try.
The main course for us was to try the steak and it was delicious, the only downside was the chips were overcooked and dry! and we had to ask twice for our sauces at 2 Euros a pop was not worth the wait.
Without sounding negative one area to avoid if you want to talk is inside near the childrens play area, (say no more) and the tables opposite the toilets as the constant door openings waft highly scented air freshener in your direction while eating a definate no no.
Would go again but just for the steak...
