Mijas Restaurant Guide

Our favourite local restaurants to try in Mijas!

Holiday villas Costa del Sol

Eating out is a popular pasttime in Spain as you'll soon find out. The quality of food along with the hospitality and atmosphere of the local restaurants has to be experienced while you are here on holiday.

Everybody wants to try the paella when they get here, and many are surprised by the variety on offer. But there are so many other dishes to try. Seafood (as you'd expect from a country based in the Mediterranean) is a speciality.

Why not try the Gambas Pil-Pil (whole Prawns in an earthenware dish cooked quickly with garlic, chillis and spices) for starters? Whatever your taste in cuisine, Mijas has plenty to choose from.

When you book your villa through us, remember we are here to ensure that your visit to Mijas is a pleasant and enjoyable experience.

So feel free to ask us about our favourite restaurants. We don't get paid by any of them, so our opinion will be (relatively!) unbiased.  Now, there is no excuse for not knowing where to go...
