There are many restaurants that fall into the category of
“International”. A bit of Spanish cuisine, some English dishes,
a curry or two to tempt your tastebuds.
You will find these restaurants all along the coast, here
are a few that we have experience with:
Hotel Tamisa Golf
The 4 star Hotel Tamisa is on the main road running past the
Mijas Golf complex. It is about a fifteen minute walk from El
Limonar, two minutes in a car. Go out of the main gates and
turn right and it is only a few hundred metres up the road.
The restaurant is lively and popular, the food is excellent,
the staff are professional, the bar areas are comfortable, what
more do you need?
Booking is definitely recommended as places are limited: 0034

On the N340 at Km. 199, the El Oceano has a superb location
overlooking the mediterranean.
Not the cheapest restaurant by any means, expect to pay between
60 - 75 euros per person for a three course meal with wine, but
one of the very best.
The hotel and restaurant are family run and most nights you
will find them eating there which is a testament to the
Their fillet steaks are some of the most tender that I have
ever had the pleasure of eating, they really do melt in the
Coupled with live entertainment every night of the week you are
guaranteed a wonderful night out!

You will find this restaurant half way up the hill on the
way to Mijas Pueblo. It is a lively and entertaining place with
intelligent and friendly staff, keep an eye out for the
manager, Pedro. He rules with a firm but very comical hand.
The food is some of the best in the area, the entertainment is
lively and varies from opera, sung by someone who looks
suspiciously like Michael Schumacher!, to jazz, to string
quartet, to DJ. Different nights, different entertainment.
Certainly recommended for a special night out, make sure that
the staff know that it's a birthday or other special occasion
as they love making a fuss of you!
Only five minutes away from Mijas Golf by car near the El
Coto urbanisation. Turn left out of Mijas Golf then first left
after La Morena restaurant and left at the T junction at the
end of that road. El Potro is clearly signposted about a
kilometer up on the left in an urbanisation.
The owners, Adam and Wendy, set out to create a relaxed and
homely atmosphere and succeeded.
The menu is fairly extensive with loads of British favourites
I have to thoroughly recommend the “Seafood Skewers” as a
starter, I would have been more than happy if that was all I
had eaten as the taste was just divine!
Prices are reasonable, around 30 to 35 euros per person with
On Sunday you can get their “All You Can Eat Buffet” for 12
euros per head + drinks, really good value.
