We have been coming to the Mijas area for a number of years and it was fantastic to find (via Tripadvisor) such a great place. Food was excellent and really different, got very busy after 9.00 and it is small so if you want to go then I suggest you book.

We had a mixture of Tapas and Raciones, next time we will stick to the Tapas as there is ample and the menu is so good we want to try everything !

Also excellent wine selection and great music.

Mijas Pueblo sells itself as traditional and there are many solid,traditional restaurants providing exactly the same food you'd expect for visiting tourists.
In amongst them tucked down a back street is this hole in a wall tapas bar serving outstanding dishes with flair and imagination that would not be out of place in Madrid or Barcelona.
A huge list of tapas appeared daunting and we simply told the waiter to keep whatever dishes he suggested coming until we'd had enough.
All were sublime, a mixture a seafood,meats,fish,vegetables on small slates with glasses of wine and spirits helpIng to wash them down.
After several hours,several bottles of wine,superb gin and tonics with Star Anaise,juniper berries and nutmeg and a dozen or so different plates plus really tasty ice-cream and cake desserts we walked out sated and delighted we'd stumbled across such a classy joint.
Recommended.Seriously recommended.

Fantastic little tapas bar with a modern take on the whole tapas thing. Imagine a 5 star restaurant then make the portions and prices a bit more tapas. This place is fantastic and would not be out of place in the trendy upmarket part of any large cosmopolitan european city the fact its in the beautiful unspoilt village of mijas just adds to it's charm. Viva bodega !

This bodega is a jewel to say the least. Food was superb, service was impeccable and I miss it so. The variety is out of this world. Something for everyone. Chef and his staff was so great! My wife and I went twice on our visit to Mijas and cannot wait to go again! If in Mijas and you love food and good service, this is a must!! Don't second guess. Go!
Muchas Gracias Nacho and bodega staff!!! Thank you for a never forgettable experience!!!
Let me know when you make it to the states!

Fantastic tapas with a contemporary twist, simple food cooked perfectly. Quite a small bar so reserve your table to avoid disappointment. Great value also and very friendly staff. Thank you Bodega el Placer, we shall come again!
