My husband and I enjoyed lunch on the terrace of The Garden on a lovely spring day. The food was delicious and had some unique choices: zucchini and onion fritters, warm dates with cream cheese and pine nut crumbles. The beer was served in clay mugs which kept it cold and refreshing. There was an artesanal market in the city... More

The view is amazing. The food was very good and the terracotta beer mugs are great. They provide nice shade at the table.

We were wandering around the beautiful town Frigiliana in the morning and decided to stop here for coffee & a beer. The views down to the sea are simply stunning and we could have sat for hours, at the beautifully tiles tables, in the warm sun. The service was friendly and efficient. A truly lovely, peaceful spot.

My boyfriend and I spent his 40th birthday at this wonderful restaurant in Frigiliana and I can honestly say it is the best restaurant I have ever visited. The setting is beautiful, the service attentive and our waiter was both charming and knowledgeable. We chose much of our meal according to his recommendations and we were so glad we did.... More

This was my fourth visit to The Garden restaurant and I have never been disappointed, the food is excellent and great value for money especially the tapas.It's well worth the hike up the hill, with great views over Frigiliana, Nerja and the Mediterranean beyond.

We selected this restaurant because it seemed better suited to the one vegetarian in our family than the other restaurants in town. It surpassed all expectations -- really, really delicious dishes! The spicing of the food was beyond outstanding...maybe Moroccan influence? Or Middle Eastern?? I don't know, but I can tell you, it was exquisite. All of us thoroughly enjoyed... More

It's a good stroll up through the old village but a treat once you arrive, the views are incredible and this is matched by the food and service, not the cheapest place but well worth it. Presentation excellent and flavour of food brilliant. Will definitely return but maybe a bit of a fight to get a table in the summer.

This restaurant was lovely. The food was amazing. We had the fillet steak which was up there with some of the best I've ever had! The lamb was tasty too. The views over Frigiliana are outstanding. It's only getting 4 as it was quite a steep hike to get to on foot but worth it for me

Let's start with the view: beautiful! You can see the whole white village, the valley and the see. The food is fantastic. A bit more expensive than your regular Spanish restaurant but beautiful. Nort African influenced and I love that. Only down point is the beer...
