On holiday near Mijas we were intent on finding exciting places to eat. En route to Alhourin to another restaurant we saw this one, liked the look of it and decided to try it. The ambience, friendly service and beautifully cooked and presented French menu was an absolute delight and a real change from what's normally on offer. Excellent all... More

We took our daughter & husband and grandchildren 6mths and 8yrs . We asked for the recessed area ( in case the children got fractious) nothing was too much trouble and our 8 yr loved the food, carpaccio to start then a steak. Our dinner was delicious, the service excellent and the ambience very nice. Highly recommended

A great restaurant with good food and superb service. We visited with friends for dinner, and noticed how popular this restaurant was as it started to fill up - a good thing we had booked! The menu is not large, which indicates fresh food to me! But the food on offer made me think as some dishes looked so good,... More

We have been coming to El Postillon for a year. We move from NY to Andalucia and we are use to a lot of dinning out. We love "el Postillon" . The service is as good as the food and the cozy and international atmosphere makes you feel like you never left the city!

Excellent restaurant which never disappoints. Friendly staff to look after you and the chef will always come out when you leave to say goodbye (and allow you to comment if necessary). You will always remember your visit as a good night out here.

Lovely Spanish style restaurant with husband (chef) and wife team. Good menu choice and beautifully cooked. Vegetables cooked perfectly but paid for as an extra, this is made clear so no hidden extra's. Definately go back in the not too distant future..

This is a wonderful restaurant with a good atmosphere. Whether it be inside during the cooler months or outside on the terrace in summer. Always a good welcome too. My all time favourite restaurant with excellent food.
