Decided to try this bodega as when we passed they used good quality wine glasses! Also it was always full. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food was superb as was the wine. The grilled goats cheese with bitter orange marmalade and mint was amazing as was the black pudding. Would advise booking.

Very very cool place. Lovely Tapas (quite alternative) I recommend the Pork Medallion topped in Caramelised Onion and Goats Cheese! Lovely house wine and friendly staff. Get a table outside and sit in the street round trendy barrels they have as tables.

I visited Bodega el Placer again recently when passing through Mijas. It was just as good, if not better than last year. The sweetbreads were one of the most memorable dishes I've ever eaten, absolutely mouthwatering delicious. Other highlights included the sardines, the anchovies and the padron peppers. Do not miss this place if you visit Mijas!

Re-visited this tapas bar after first discovering in 2011. Still a cut above the rest. They don't push the same tired dishes you can find in almost any other local restaurant. A previous reviewer said it wasn't gastronomically incredible, ok so it's no michellin star establishment but the ingredients are of great quality and the flavour combinations are good. Have been back twice this holiday and thoroughly satisfied with the variety of dishes I've managed to sample. The music is a jazz internet radio station and isn't overly loud especially when the bar is full. The service is friendly and as for the complaints about speed, I've had no issues but then I'm on holiday, I'm in a relaxed part of Spain and I'm not ordering a Big Mac and fries, so I've had no issues. Price-wise it is value for money. If you want pre-processed muck but with big tables, comfy seats and a nice view then head for Oscars and take out your tastebuds. If you like good food then order here.
