I have to say this is the first ever Review I have submitted ever. But I was so blown away by the warm of the staff, the Restaurant ambience, and the passion and food produced by the Chef. I had to resort to express my feelings about this Restaurant. I found out it's a family run English business , but do not let that fool you. The standard of service, quality of food and presentation is second to none. If you visit Here, do so on an afternoon, where they do tapas with a twist. Mini fish and chips, pate to die for, hummus with flatbread and carrots. Each only €3. Your taste buds will explode, and you get to sample the quality of food before trying an evening meal, which is every bit as good for a very reasonable price. Thank you Sofia, Craig , Irene and Jo. I will be back. Fantastic feed and service. T

Thank you so much to Sofia,Craig (English Chef) and Irene for a wonderful tasty and beautifully presented,excellent value 3 course meal at their beautiful restaurant, The Village Bistro in the most picturesque village in the Costa Del Sol in Mijas Pueblo.
After visiting the village yesterday, we returned this evening after Googling the best restaurants in Mijas Pueblo to find this little gem of a place.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by Sofia and ordered some drinks after a few hours on the road. The ambience of the restaurant was just what we needed after a long day.
We couldn’t fault anything from start to finish and we are returning again on Friday our last night. The restaurant and bar is very relaxing, warm and friendly with beautiful decor and surroundings.
The service and food was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble.
Craig the Chef came out of the kitchen to check everything was ok and chatted to us along with his wife Sofia.
Please don’t hesitate to visit this Restaurant and bar if you are in the Village, you will not be disappointed.
All the food was freshly prepared and cooked to order and the Restaurant Bar and Toilets were spotless.
Great English food and hospitality with a touch of class.
Once again thank you so much for making us feel very welcome and serving us a fantastic meal and drinks.
We look forward to seeing you all on Friday Evening for another great evening and tasty food.
April and John

Normally we would not chose somewhere so British in Spain but waiting for the bus the restaurant we had chosen to go to had their renovations extended and were still closed. I am not sorry we went there - we chose from the 3 euro tapas menu and it was beautifully served and delicious. We had fish, patatas bravas, hummus and prawns and they were all really fresh and lovely. Just a stones throw from the bus stop so we had a relaxing drink before catching the bus back and it was a lovely end to our trip to Mijas - not typically Spanish but still excellent food.

I love Mijas for starters and have been here a few times. My Dad has recently retired and spends a few months at this beautiful place.

I came to visit him on my birthday in February and he immediately recommended I meet the beautiful staff of the Village Bistro.

Any drink and any request was met with heartfelt positivity and the staff did anything they could to make me feel welcome.

We then come to the food. Now I’ve eaten at many a decent reputable restaurant in the UK and I seriously suggest you try this place. From Tapas during the day to fine dining on the evening!

The food is exquisite and the chef is one of the most passionate people I have met.

Coming here you will not be disappointed and a great day or evening will be had!

Try it for yourself! I’ll be back soon!

Always grateful

Ross
