El Mirador, Antequera. A similar standard to Los Atanores in the village. Situated on the road to Antequera after the Z bend descent to the town. Be sure to walk through the restaurant to the patio at the rear for a truly magnificent view of Antequera by day or night.
Rio Frio, Loja. This makes a perfect half way stopping place on the return from Granada. (We eat here after skiing in Sierra Nevada, the open fire being very popular !) At Loja take the old Malaga road to Rio Frio and look for the rustic restaurant with the thatch covered patio.
Alhaurin Golf Club Restaurant. Take the road to Alhaurin el Grande. Pass through the town towards Mijas. Cross the roundabout with the giant lamp-post and see the club house on your right.
Fuengirola. On the coast, just over one hours’ drive from the village, this Costa del Sol town has every type and nationality of restaurant imaginable plus dozens of beach bars.
El Tintero, Malaga. Leave Malaga city on the coast road towards Nerja. This restaurant is on the beach just before the sports port of Malaga at El palo. To enjoy this unusual restaurant, visit with several friends at a busy time. There is no need to order, just wave to a waiter who is carrying a tray of something appetising and he will leave a dish for you. The waiters continually circulate with a variety of fried fish, beer is served by the jug, and when it’s time to pay, they simply count your dishes and write the price on the cloth. Instant service and fish as fresh as it gets!
This is very close to El Candado port where boats can be chartered as mentioned above.
