Fodor's Expert Review Restaurante El Mirlo Blanco

$$$$ Mijas Spanish

In an old house on the pleasant Plaza de la Constitución, this restaurant is run by a Basque family that's been in the Costa del Sol restaurant business since 1968. The cozy indoor dining room, with a log fire for cooler days, is welcoming and intimate, with original and noteworthy artwork interspersed among the arches, hanging plants, and traditional white paintwork. Outdoor dining takes in views of the square from the lovely rooftop terrace, perfectly shaded by grapevines in the summer. Good choices here are Basque specialties such as txangurro and bacalao a la vizcaína (cod in a tomato and pepper sauce), plus roasted meats, particularly the lamb. And don't miss the sensational Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert. There's a long gin list too.
