This was a wonderful evening of delicious food, exceptional staff and great atmosphere. All the food was lovingly prepared. The fish dishes (we had 3) were very fresh. The steak was perfect. We had several desserts--the grand marnier soufflé came out aflame and was very entertaining as well as tasty. This was our best dining experience in Spain. Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant located in the old town. Food was excellent, freshly baked bread and olive oil for dipping, pre-heated plates, excellent attentive service and tasty food. Starter was Gazpacho, a dish usually avoided outside home because you never know what they might throw in there but you could taste it was freshly made and... More

This is a family run restaurant serving delicious, Spanish food on the main square in Mijas Pueblo. We visited in early January and sat inside at the roaring log fire. The portions are large.

Having read the reviews we decided we would book up and were we glad we did so. We arrived at 8:00pm for our evening meal and were shown to our table at the front of the terrace overlooking the Plaza De Le Constitucion. Perfect for people watching!

What a gem, a family run traditional restaurant, lovely staff, terrific food and wine. Not cheap but well worth the money. If you love good Spanish food this is the place to go. We went on a Sunday lunch time and it was full with Spanish family groups, can get noisey but a great atmosphere. Recommend it if you are... More

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.
