What a fun experience. Food is great. Service excellence. Thank you Alejandro, for your food suggestions. The margaritas are hand crafted, meals are a variety of Hispanic dishes, and desserts are creamy homemade treats! Decor is lively.

Mijas bills themselves as a Mexican cantina, but it's much more. The Columbian dishes are much more imaginative than the Mexican standards. Service could have been better for the group of 22, but was adequate and a plus for attitude.
