A fabulous location to watch the sunset from their small but friendly terrace. We had two traditional spanish soups to start Gazpacho and al alio, both delicious, we then had fish - well cooked but plain - and belly pork which was extremely fatty (a...More

Have eaten in most of the restaurants in Frigiliana and this one is the best by far. High quality food, great presentation, fantastic location and brilliant service from the staff particularly Antonio. Some of the other 'fine dining' restaurants are very pretentious, including many of...More
