Eat & Drink

A late breakfast, lunch when you feel like it, perusing the dessert menu, one last cocktail…

To dine at La Zambra’s restaurants in Mijas is to take a road trip through the great classic cultures, with Mediterranean cuisine as a base and a wide variety of powerful local and international flavours which pay homage to the world’s tastiest culinary traditions.

Dining areas

From the classic pescaíto frito to a selection of pizzas, traditional pastries, the finest wines, and the most pioneering tapas dishes, La Zambra’s gastronomy invites you to discover the best that Costa del Sol – and the world – have to offer. Take your pick from four different restaurants in Mijas with incredible views and get ready to treat your taste buds.


Palmito restaurant is designed to satisfy all tastes, with personalised menus and live cooking demonstrations in an innovative space that fails to lose the warm ambience of its privileged location, the village of Mijas.

Using the very best ingredients, Palmito offers a menu that varies depending on the time of day, with buffet breakfasts and a choice of hot dishes cooked to order in the mornings, healthy lunches with vegetarian options, grilled meat, fish, and seafood cooked on the spot in front of the diners, and slightly more formal dinners, with more elaborate options and a children’s menu. All meals are served in a spacious dining room decorated with palm tree branches and local vegetation, or on the outdoor terrace which is shaded from the sun’s strong rays by a wattle roof.


The central bar, the tiles, the framed photos of festivals and the singing and clapping of typical Andalusian bulerías create a unique atmosphere in this Mijas restaurant that maintains the essence of Málaga’s traditional neo taverns, mixed with a fresh and renewed feel.

Both in the dining room and the outdoor terrace with views over the Mijas mountains, Picador restaurant offers an avant-garde menu based on Málaga’s cuisine. Choose from tapas made with the best local ingredients, a selection of main courses and homemade desserts, paired with some of the world’s finest wines straight from our cellar. Indulge in a vibrant, inspiring atmosphere, where staff and diners chat amicably.

We always start with the best intentions. "Just one drink" we say, but our friend smiles, knowing what will happen later on…


Just like our esteemed past guests, Bamboleo invites you to be yourself, let yourself go, move to your own beat, and connect with like-minded people.

Its relaxing indoors and poolside terrace make this restaurant with views the best spot to enjoy international classics throughout the day, an aperitif at sunset or an evening cocktail.

The menu includes some of the world’s best tapas dishes, not only inspired by the local area of Mijas, but also with Asian, American, and Mexican influences, among other surprises. Pair it with something from Bamboleo’s extensive cocktail menu, inspired by iconic moments and celebrities that visited the Byblos hotel and Costa del Sol long before us.


La Bartola is an ode to spontaneity and the essence of Costa del Sol’s authentic beach bars, making it the perfect place for a light snack by the pool during the day, or a chilled family lunch.

The menu includes a wide variety of seafood tapas, salads, and Málaga’s authentic fried dishes. Complete the experience by choosing from a selection of fresh juices and smoothies, cocktails and La Zambra’s exclusive sangria.
