El Paso Mexicano – Tex-Mex at its Best
El Paso Mexicano is the place to be if you’re craving Tex-Mex and Mexican cuisine, served with a dash of fun in vibrant and authentic surrounds. Located just off the Fuengirola promenade, in the atmospheric backstreets of Los Boliches, the colourful décor will transport you directly to Central America. The menu includes all the favourites, such as sizzling fajitas, crispy tacos, and tasty guacamole, and there is also a dedicated children’s menu. Younger diners will be enthralled by the traditional live music and chance to sport a broad-rimmed Mexican sombrero.
Five-Star Ambience: This is a particularly great choice for celebrating a birthday or special occasion.
Masala La Cala – First for Indian Cuisine
We know it’s a big claim, but for many locals and visitors alike, the five Masala restaurants serve the best Indian cuisine on the Costa del Sol, with a loyal flock of diners returning time and again for the quality of food, friendly service and traditional décor. Masala La Cala, in La Cala de Mijas, is particularly family-friendly as the interior is air-conditioned, while the exterior terrace is partly covered and boasts sea views. Large groups of diners can easily be accommodated here and there is ample street parking. Along with the classics, the menu includes delicious chef specials; all made using only the freshest ingredients and authentic spices imported from India.
Hot Tip: Each dish on the menu can be ordered hot, medium or mild; especially useful for little taste buds new to the flavours of Indian cuisine!
Restaurante Mezzanotte – A Feast for all the Family
A blend of vegetarian, Lebanese and Italian cuisine, served in a welcoming and familial atmosphere, everyone in the family is sure to find something to order on the menu at Restaurante Mezzanotte, no matter how fussy an eater they are! From shared plates like hummus and falafel for a Middle-Eastern feast, to tried and tested pasta dishes or even pizzas chosen from the children’s menu, Restaurante Mezzanotte has all members of the family catered for.
