another real beach bar run by Spanish friendly people.The food is what you expect from this type of bar, its good food at a reasonable price. I have seen film crews making Spanish soaps in the bar. Have great time.

Popped in just for a coffee and made very welcome. Chilly, blustery day but didn't affect the friendliness of the staff. Smashing cup of coffee, very reasonably priced at a Euro and a half each. Unfortunately they will not survive by us alone but we will give them repeat business!

We come to Costa del Sol twice a year for the last three years. A visit to Chiringuito Arroya at La Cala is utterly essential since we discovered it. Outstanding food, drink and service. Our holiday wouldn't be the same without a nice chomp and seat in the sun there.

We've tried several restaurants on the beach and for us it was the worst. The food was less then average. The fried fish was slightly undercooked. The vegetables were overcooked. The service was awful. Poorly trained staff is probably the reason. But the location is absolutely great.

This is one of the better beach bars for food on Mijas costa, it isn't the cheapest but it is good value with its good food. I would place this as one of the better places for paella and it even does paella "caldosa" which is a great soup type paella. The "espeto" of sardines or even try an espeto... More

No frills great spot. Fabulous for early evening dining with a view over the beach and sea. Watch the late sun worshippers pack up and go. Better still sunbathe on the beach then go for an early dinner still in your beach wear.....very decadent. No fuss food and fish cooked traditionally on the olive wood fuelled fire. A choice of...
