Description: El Mirlo Blanco is located in a delightful setting in a traditional whitewashed building typical of the Malaga region in the centre of Mijas. The restaurant can seat 60 diners in two dining rooms that feature wonderful open fireplaces, although in the warmer months diners can eat on the terrace with its splendid views over the town and the nearby mountains. The restaurant offers traditional Basque cooking using the finest seasonal ingredients. Its extensive menu changes with the seasons with specialities that include beef stew, baby squid or excellent cod, among many others. There is also a long list of wines and spirits. El Mirlo Blanco is a great choice at any time of year, whether you choose to sit by the fire on cold days or on its wonderful terrace in summer.

We opted for a proper mid-day meal and were quite fortunate to find a table for 5 available at Mirlo Blanco.

Our experience was without question the best of our culinary adventures.

Of particular praise from our party we the artichoke and ham, cod salad, oxtail, pork chops, and crab.

Of special note is the soufflé, which was served by chef with a table side flambé .

Oh, our gluten-free companions were recognized with special croquettes and bread...a very nice touch, indeed.

Notwithstanding others complaints regarding cost, we found Mirlo Blanco to be quite fairly priced for the high caliber of the experience.

We sat outside on the deck for our dinner, overlooking a quaint square in Mijas. They offered us bread rolls, and we discovered later they charge for those. The squid in black sauce which was good, as was the duck a l'orange. However, the fish was filled with little bones that were very tricky to separate from the flesh, and my dad's veal entrecote looked very much like very fatty beef. I understand that a lovely location like this can command the prices they do, but the bill was still surprisingly high.

Excellent in every way! We booked table in the morning and were given a perfect table overlooking the square! Enjoyed everything from the warm bread and olive oil dip to the delicious starters and main course! I had sole in a lovely sauce with prawns and my husband had baby lamb!! Atmosphere was friendly and busy! A definite to visit again.

Every time we visit they never fail to deliver excellent food and service. The spider crab is a must have, so unique.
Thanks to all the staff including Manolo and Paco in the kitchen for making us feel so welcome.

We really enjoyed this restaurant, which is in a can't miss location right on the square and next to the road up to the park and bull ring. We had fish, chicken, a steak, and a special (oxtail) and everything was very good. The staff was also helpful with the wine recommendation. The dessert (and dessert wine!) selection was extensive. Certainly one of the best choices for a good meal in Mijas.
