Set in the middle of nowhere, this is place is great. The service is as attentive as you will get anywhere, and the food excellent, especially the steaks. Large open terrace, live music (not obtrusive) most nights in summer. Booking essential. Only downside - it's closed on Fridays which seems a bit odd.

Located on the road you take to reach La Cal Golf Resort - it initially kind of looks like a house but amazingly large once you get up lose. Spacious indoor seating are as well as very large outdoor terrace. The choice of the fixed menus are great and has something for everyone. Normal cost still 17Euros with it at 22Euros on Music nights. I drink Tia Maria and the measures are huge - even for Spain! Staff are helpful - all speak English and it well worth a visit. Because of the range of choices - we did it a couple of times during our holiday. Definitely worth a visit ....

We were first to review this restaurant in June 2011 when we ate twice here in one week with friends.

We went with our daughter, son in law and 18month old grandson for two visits this time

Not dissapointed we had great meals and great service. Our grandson, who is allergic to dairy eggs and fish was especially looked after and managed to flirt with all the waitresses.

Once again many thanks to all at the restaurant. The only slight difficulty was leaving the car park on Saturday night as it was so full, but hey, thats a great recommendation.

Can't believe how much this place has changed since our last visit 5 years ago. It has double the amount of tables and was full every night. Would recommend booking a table. We managed to get table 4 which gave fabulous views as far as mijas pueblo and down to the coast. Food was lovely both nights. They have a fixed menu for €17 or €22 on music nights. Great value on both.
