This is a fabulous local restaurant. Tapas is their speciality and the servings are more than generous. Nothing flash, you sit on plastic chairs on the roof top terrace but fabulous food and service. It was not expensive. The crème caramel from a crème caramel lover gets 10 out of 10 from me. The staff are helpful and serve you with a smile. It is a little out of the way in an area where the locals live. It is well worth the effort to find. I would recommend you make the effort to find it you will not be disappointed.

Go right to the top for the roof top restaurant and views down to the coast. A little hard to find but worth it. Good tapas.

Book ahead and ask for a terrace table. Don't expect super fast service but they're very friendly. Plastic chairs and paper decorations make it very simple but in my opinion magical.

Good selection of fish and meat dishes as well as raciones.

After strolling down all the streets of Mijas, we rolled into this place, away from the touristy area, searching for a good, inexpensive meal.
The Menu del Dia was announced on a board outside this place and as we entered we saw only locals, which we interpreted as 'the food must be good'. We were directed upstares, where we went outside to sit. The roof terrace wasn't open in the afternoon, which was too bad, since the view from there is magnificent, but the intermediate terrace was really okay. The menu del Dia costed us a meager 8 euro and consisted of bread, a drink, soup, a main and a postre. Portions were good, big and the food was of good quality, no fancy stuff, just good traditional cooking, service was quick and lovely.
We visited Mijas just one day, if we stayed longer, this would definately be on the list for repeated visits!

Visited this nice tapas restaurant twice in one week. Food is excellent and the place is visited a lot by local people (which means a lot about food quality, taste and price).

The bar and 1st floor don't look that great, but offer a good place to sit down and relax. The roof terrace is excellent with a great view over Mijas and surroundings.

This is a "must eat" during a visit in Mijas.
