“Authentic vibe, amazing views, food good”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

April 2014 we walked from Mijas Car Park (only Eur1 for 24hrs parking) to this restaurant, it is a truly beautiful walk through the streets of Mijas, especially late in the evening when all the donkeys are heading back to their stables. There is a tapas bar downstairs with restaurant upstairs, family run, lots of family photos on walls (First Holy Communions etc...). Restaurant full of local Spanish people. Food was very reasonably priced, portions plentiful, my husband enjoyed his steak, the food is good and reasonably priced this is not haute cuisine. Service laid back, relaxed and friendly. I will return to this restaurant as I really enjoyed the ambiance, it was nice to be in a restaurant in Spain surrounded by only Spanish people and no other tourist in sight. Bring your camera for the walk to the restaurant and for the view when you get there.

“great raciones”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

if you are visiting mijas you must visit this bar! good restaurant upstairs but my favourite is the raciones in the bar. Spanish bar but very welcoming to tourists. Great night with a variety of raciones and when sardines are in season -world class!

“Wonderful tapas”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

A longish walk from the centre of Mijas Pueblo but well worth it . We arrived early and were rewarded with an outside table with amazing views .place was packed out by 2.30 . Wonderful authentic tapas especially the clams and excellent value for money . The white vino de casa at 10 euros is also worth a special mention!

“Disappointed ?”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This restaurant was recomended to me by a friend who has been visiting Mijas for 20 years or more.
Having totally embraced Spanish cuisine we were looking forward to home style hearty spanish cooking . However the vegetable soup ordered was salty dried packet mix ! My partner ordered the 'speciality ' of the day chicken curry which was utterly revolting both dishes were sent back.. So have to say I really dont get this place. There are far better tapas places in Mijas Pueblo.

“Local Spanish Tapas”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

If you are looking for proper local tapas than this is one of two places in Mijas that is a must to go to. Stay downstairs in the 'bar' area - yes its noisy and basic - but this is the true thing!! And the tapas (at the right time) is freshly cooked and is great. Jose is friendly, as is Paco. Give it a try!
