We were taken there by friends as their favourite restaurant, and I can see why. Absolutely lovely food with a good varied menu. Overlooking a peaceful square in Mijas this must be one of the nicest restaurants, and it must be because Tony Blair has...More

Everything about this restaurant is great! The location, wines, staff, food, terrace. We will come back many times. You need to book some days in advance in the summer.

Fabulous!!! Fabulous food, the service was second to none. The location, the wine, the ambiance was superb. Totally recommended Trout and ham apparently a northern Spain recipe. Martin Winter's steak was apparently the best he had ever had. Wonderful

The Mirlo Blanco is at the top of the gastronomic class of Mijas and the standard here is reasonably high. The cuisine is typical of northern Spain so makes a nice alternative to the predominant and equally delicious Andalusian cuisine offered elsewhere. The wine list...More

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.
