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.

The staff have an arrogance that is not justified.
The food is ok but not exceptional.
Entrecôte was fatty and having been advised that duck was breast, it was pre cooked leg!
They are living on their reputation and do not respond well to justified criticism.
There are much better restaurants in this price range in Fuengirola.

The restaurant is positioned fantastically looking across the square particularly from the outside terrace. The food we had was wonderful (great fish soup and scrambled egg/cod starters with what seemed like warm homemade bread were yummy). Veal escalope was lovely with a garlic sauce.

The let down was the lack of child friendliness - making us with a 3 month old baby in a buggy feel unwelcome. The waiters were pleasant and the older lady serving a little stern. Perhaps if we were just adults we would have received a better welcome

Our favourite place!
A fabulous family run restaurant serving superb food, service is excellent!
Gorgeous little fluffy cheesy potato balls as an amusée bouche! Hot freshly baked rolls and delicious starter and main dishes!
Of course there is the famous baked Alaska served up at the table by the chef! For dessert!
Out on the terrace high up with grapes growing above! And a view!
Just the best place to eat!
Highly recommended
Thank you for making my husbands birthday so very special,
