Mijas - La Bodega Del Pintor (Spanish) 615672447 In the centre of the village - very friendly staff, food is very good. They occasionally have traditional Spanish musicians coming into the bar playing and singing. But if this isn’t your thing there are plenty of seats outside on the back terrace.

Tapas Bars There are a number of good tapas bars and restaurants at the back of Fuengirola's main square, behind the main post office. This is the website to one of them so you can find it but when you get there you will see that there are a number to choose from. www.casacolon.com
There are also some good tapas bars in Mijas too. Our favourite is Chemis Vonoteca (on trip advisor). Very friendly owner from Barcelona and excellent wine and unique tapas. 952590610
Finally there are plenty more good restaurants – there are a few business cards left by other guests that have tried other places that are good. If you need any help with directions to any of these or other places please call Simon.
