top restaurant reviews in La Cala de Mijas, SpainTripAdvisor is the world leader when it comes to reviews of hotels, activities, and holiday rentals. They have recently also started reviewing restaurants. This is a great feature of the website. You just pick a place of interest, then go from tab to tab, to find the top rated items.  Since this is a fairly new service from TripAdvisor you cannot expect the overwhelming number of reviews that you could find on Zagat or even Yelp in the US, but it is a start. Give it another year or so and you’ll see a ton of pictures from the restaurants, the food, and great advice on what to try, and what to possibly avoid.  Read on to get the current top 16 restaurant list in La Cala de Mijas.

Let’s start from the top, with the current #1 restaurant, as of April 7th, 2013.

It should be said that some of the biggest and best restaurants are not even on the list yet. This is partly the fault of the owners not being on top of things, and visitors not reviewing. With your help the reviews will be more complete and useful in the future. To write a review for a La Cala de Mijas based restaurant click here.
