My wife and I spend a lot of time in Mijas Pueblo and no matter what time of day or which day of the week, the outside tables are always reserved. We have often sat across from Alboka and drank/ eaten, often taking hours over...our meal, yet the tables are rarely occupied. Despite this, tonight we thought we'd try again to get a table, but alas no, a surley waitress once again said no, yet we only wanted a drink. Once again we sat opposite in the Italian restaurant, with the friendly waiters and the reasonable prices, looking at the empty tables....weird way to run a business. I'd try the Italian across the street if I were you.More

What a fabulous place to enjoy dinner. We visited twice during our stay as there was so many yummy dishes on the menu. We definitely recommend the octopus which was delicious and cooked to perfection. The sangria was very enjoyable as was their mango mojito.

Came for drinks and decided to stay for dinner. Loved our meal here, a new twist on Spanish classics and also excellent vegetarian options. Everything we tasted was delicious, some of it fresh and light takes on Spanish cuisine and others like prawn pilpil, tasty...classics. The wine list is really interesting and showcases local wines as well as less known Rioja and Riberas. Service was friendly, helpful and very efficient. Will definitely return and highly recommend.More

Was surprised to see the last review was so poor as it does not at all reflect our experience. Staff very attentive, food and ambiance was excellent and reasonably priced for the portions. Recommended

Getting a table might not always be an easy thing this place is popular especially it would seem with the British Expat community. Staff very courteous and polite and the food ordered was not bad. The menu though was more of a winter menu than...a summer menu - heavy food choices made it difficult on a hot summers evening difficult to choose - the menu needs to reflect the season and look for lighter bites that are refreshing in summer not heavy winter dishesMore
