Halfway up the road from Fuengirola on the way to Mijas, this sprawling house is in its own garden, complete with swimming pool. There's live music nightly, ranging from flamenco to opera and jazz. This is a favorite among local (mainly British) expatriates, some of whom come in full evening dress to celebrate birthdays or other events. In winter, logs burn in a cozy fireplace. The pato a la naranja (duck in orange sauce) is popular, but there's also an emphasis
on Italian cuisine, with pasta choices that include fusilli with lamb meatballs and risotto with asparagus and scallops.
