The cuisine is from the north of Spain - very traditional and a welcome to the pallet. Family orientated business and unfortunately the service is often carried out without the smile (unless you speak first) If the ice is broken and time is permitted the welcome becomes more and more apparent and usually terminates with an after meal free drink...

We always go there at least twice when we are in Mijas. The food is excellent and well worth the money. A bit different from tourist fare - so don't expect egg and chips! Try the grand marnier souffle - spectacular! It's family owned and run and mama is there, making sure everything is to the correct standard. Staff are... More

This is our second visit ( we were last here 5 years ago). It is still the best place to get good basque food and still run by the same family. Essential to book especially at weekends and you want to be out on the terrace. You can watch the world going by while enjoying a G & T. Very... More

Whenever we visit friends in Mijas a visit to El Mirlo Blanco is a must. Friendly excellent service with delicious food make this restaurant one of the best in the area. Book a table on the balcony in the evening to complete the special dinning experience.

We have had a tradision to eat lunch every time we visit costa del sol for our yearly autumn holiday. No exeption this year .

El Mirlo Blanco is located in a delightful setting in a traditional whitewashed building typical of the Malaga region in the centre of Mijas. 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.
