Excellent choice of freshly prepared food in chilled display to choose from. A popular place to have such quality of eatables.

DISCLAIMER: I have been to this restaurant for at least 15 years. At least twice per year when we visit. So around €3000 spent in that time. It is opposite our hotel so we ate here for convenience.

It is situated in a poor position at the start of the pretty Mijas Pueblo (by the road). The food served is normally expensive but decent. The BBQ is the big feature, which the owner cooks on.

Regrettably the owner has now employed an inefficient new male waiter without memory or any personality which did not contribute to a joyous night.

However when the steaks were all cold. They were sent back and recooked. Except our steaks were then not rare and medium rare as requested. They were well done! They refused to cook new steaks AND the meat also tasted peculiar; if you've ever had a sausage that has begun to go off, that's the taste. It was going off. It was also very fatty.

However the owner made things much worse. Not only arguing about the steak, he sent us back cold vegetables and potatoes, charged for a more expensive steak and then argued some more - aggressively - to say there would be no discount. No drink. No apology. No nothing.

The owner is a disgrace. And if you don't want a dodgy stomach (based on this particular experience) DO NOT EAT HERE! I cannot get over how bad the customer service was, and how disrespectful the owner was.

Really lovely Tapas for 8€. You are given 5 dishes and we absolutely loved it. Just got one plate for the 3 of us and it was ample. The white wine was really cold, which I like. Just perfect

Sat outside on the terrace overlooking the roundabout and main road into Mijas Pueblo.
Can be noisy!
Locals drink and use the inside bar - not many tourists' as right on the outskirts of Mijas
Selection of cheap Tapas and affordable drinks
No frills and good value

We popped here on night 2, hoping to book a table, luckily we got in that night; It gets really busy, so book. The food was lovely, the starters was to die for - I had goats cheese, hubby had black pudding ❤️ it wasn't cheap about €75 with wine, but you're right on the plaza and it was worth every penny, even the harp player got a generous tip!
