This is one of the better beach bars for food on Mijas costa, it isn't the cheapest but it is good value with its good food. I would place this as one of the better places for paella and it even does paella "caldosa" which is a great soup type paella. The "espeto" of sardines or even try an espeto... More

No frills great spot. Fabulous for early evening dining with a view over the beach and sea. Watch the late sun worshippers pack up and go. Better still sunbathe on the beach then go for an early dinner still in your beach wear.....very decadent. No fuss food and fish cooked traditionally on the olive wood fuelled fire. A choice of...

My wife and I enjoyed a tasty lunch on the beach in Mijas. I had some fried fish and my wife had some pork. Service was friendly and efficient. Prices competitive.

When we come into La Cala, the choice is usually between here and Pikoteo. The outside tables here offer a lovely direct view of the sea and we love eating to the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach. The menu isn't extensive - what they do, they do very well (particularly the fish cooked on wood). The garlic... More

We visited here twice during a recent visit to La Cala. First time we had mixed paella which was very generous portions & the following visit we had fresh fish from the grill. The food is good value & service is excellent, all enhanced by it being located on the beach itself. Overall a very pleasant experience.
