This place is really worth hunting out in the midst of quiet white-washed streets. Delicious food and wine, cheap and a sweet little rooftop terrace. Altogether a real treat.

Although not in the centre of the village, this bar/restaurant is well worth finding. It really is only a few minutes walk along from the main shopping street. Much used by locals as well, which is always a good sign. Very friendly staff, and wide choice of tapas and meals, and even the house wine is good and very reasonably... More

We've been coming here for a few years now and it never disappoints. The Tapas is amazing and such good value for money, with lovely service and beautiful views. Don't let the walk there put you off as it's among lots of houses, this makes it even better! There is a tapas bar downstairs which is always full of locals,... More

As Mijas is a really touristic place, we thought the best way to find a good plce to eat would be asking to someone who looked local (see picture and judge) It was 3 of us (me, my sister and her friend from Hungary), and the friend was kind of shocked at first when we got to the place.

An authentic Andalusian tapas restaurant. Lovely rooftop terrace, great views, fabulous tapas..really tasty and reasonably priced. Very busy but didn't have to wait too long for the food. Great atmosphere and smiley faces from all staff. Thank you for a great evening. We will return next year.
