La Cala de Mijas

This charming coastal town boasts an array of restaurants that cater to every palate and preference. From quaint seaside bistros serving fresh catches of the day to chic eateries dishing out innovative international cuisines, La Cala offers it all.

La Pergola Restaurant

Our go to Italian restaurant when we are looking for an up-market Italian meal is La Pergola, situated outside of la Cala and accessible by car along the A7, take the exit after the bus stop prior to the la Cala exit. 

La Pergola has authentic Italian decor, attentive and friendly staff and meals made from high quality ingredients. 

Some of our favourite dishes are the truffle risotto, pizza La Pergola, lasagne and the burrata but everything looks fantastic. We advise you to share a starter if you go because each one we have tried is easily enough for 2 people.

Restaurante Konfusion

A creative Spanish fusion restaurant with a modern taste and establishment. Some of the dishes we’ve enjoyed are the cheese board, ham croquetas, pil-pil, the hamburger and the angus steak. If you are looking for a restaurant that has delicious food, a modern facade and not too expensive you can’t go wrong with Konfusion.

Sai Indian

If you’re looking to try something different to Spanish cuisine and enjoy Indian cuisine, Sai Indian is one of the best Indian restaurants near la Cala. 

Their Onion Baji, Chicken Tikka Masala, Garlic Naan and Vindaloo curry (as spicy as you want it) are our go to favourites but everything looks fantastic.
