Boomerang Bar - Calle Casablanca, Torremolinos

Boomerang is the ideal place to start the evening, end the evening, or just spend the whoile time there! You'll find it hard to find a friendlier bar in Torremolios and its slap bang in the middle of the Pueblo Blanco. Gill and the team will always make you feel at home.

Open 7pm to late every night except Wednesdays.

Churreria Santa Fe

Pedro serves probably the best churros on the coast!  Sart the day the Spanish way with churros and coffee, and watch the world go by. We really love this place, you can pop in for a coffee, or have a lunchtime snack. A glass of beer or wine and you can while away the day watching the comings and goings along the Av. de los Boliches!

Av. de los Boliches, 78.

Andy's Beach Bar, Cabopino

Andy's is well known establishment here on the coast, what many people don't know however is that is roots go back to the BBC soap Eldorado. If you were a fan you might know that all the beach and marina scenes were actually filmed at Cabopino. The original beach bar was to be a TV set, but the local authorities insisted it was a working bar and Andy's is the result. Now extended with all the TV paraphernalia removed its a great place to have a drink or a snack. Live music is often to be heard especially during the season.

Find Andy's by walking towards the beach from the main car park and follow the smell of sizzling sardines..

The Family Restaurant and Bar, Sitio de Calahonda

As the name suggests, this is a family run restaurant and bar. The food is exquisite and if you like fish you are in for a treat! The staff are very attentive and you can choose to sit upstairs where you can enjoy a view over the sea. We really thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

You will find it in the hills on Calle Don Jose de Orbaneja, just past the taxi rank and the famous 'dog park'

Opens 5pm to midnight

Roxy's Bistro, Elviria

Whilst Elviria has lots to offer, head around the old town (yes there is one) towards the town hall and then turn as if you are joining the A7 and you will discover a taste of real French cuisine slap bang in the middle of Elviria. We love this place - try their Croque Monsieur and you will instantly be transported somewhere French and tres chic! They open all day weekdays and its the perfect place for a spot of lunch, a drink, or just a coffee and a catch-up. They even have Leffe beer!!

Urb. Pueblo Los Arcos, 4. Elviria

Restaurant Valpariso, Mijas

The 'Valp' is one of our old favourites! Its a bit like stepping back in time - to a time where service was not rushed, where you can order anything - the menu is just a guide, and where you can relax and enjoy yourself all night long. Raffaele and Vittorio will make it their job to ensure you have an amazing time.

Its high prise but they deserve it. Dress to impress, and dance and dine under the stars on their terrace. Make it an occasion...

Check their website for special events

Valpariso

The Times Bar & Grill, La Cala de Mijas

The Times Bar is a firm fixture in La Cala but not for the reasons you might think. Yes, it a great bar and they serve up some delicious food, but what you won't know is just how much these guys do for the local community - they don't make a fuss about it, but we do. They provide support to many people, we'd like to support them!

Find them on the corner of Calle Catama in La Calle.
