The closest are to be found in Centro Comercial Las Terrazas which is home to a supermarket serving a wide range of food and drinks, a newsagents and several bars and restaurants, the best of which are Venta del Golf (standard Spanish restaurant, good quality and reasonable prices), La Pizzeria (excellent pizzas and pasta, always very busy), Sol y Sombre (excellent Spanish snack bar, cheap, good food, very friendly staff) and Rincon de la Boca (cheap and cheerful Argentinian food). There is also an internet café (Connect).
Around Riviera del Sol: In Riviera del Sol itself you will find even more amenities including Centro Comercial Plaza with supermarket, excellent café, bank, bureau de change and a few other shops. Above Plaza is a fabulous Italian Restaurant which does flamenco twice a week (you will need to book). Also in Riviera are:
Max Beach – very popular bar/restaurant on the beach-side of the main road, this is one of the best places on the coast, a bit pricey but worth it for the way it is designed with a series of wooden decks overlooking the sea.
El Oceano – very elegant and highly recommended hotel/restaurant between Riviera and La Cala – walkable from the apartment.
Antonio’s – a seafood restaurant between Max Beach and El Oceano, fantastic food right on the shoreline
In Calahonda there are many restaurants and bars including the excellent Bistro (Swiss food).
In Torreneuva, there are several excellent chiringitos on the beach and, just off the beautiful beaches, you will find Los Llaves, a lovely rustic style spanish restaurant
Further afield: In nearby La Cala de Mijas, which has a very Spanish pueblo feel to it, there are plenty of ventas on the main street and side streets which offer excellent food at very reasonable prices. The seafront places tend to be a bit more expensive but are still very good. Also in La Cala is Mijas Playa, a very good restaurant serving international cuisine. Walking around the village you will come across many more cafes, bars and restaurants of all nationalities. There is also a full range of shops in La Cala and, on Wednesday and Saturday, there is a big market (from 10am to 2pm) which is well worth a visit.
