I am still dreaming of the delicious meal we had here. Each dish is attractively presented, with sauces and garnishes including colourful ingredients such as beetroot and spices. The langostinos in a spicy, garlicky olive oil were the most delicious I have ever tasted, the...More

This restaurant is in a lovely garden which enjoys great views from Frigiliana to the coast. The service was excellent and the food was delicious, I would particularly recommend the barbecued lamb. We will certainly return.

This place located on the way up to El Castillo, but it would be more pleasant to visit on the way back. Grilled goat's cheese is perfect (texture like Crème brûlée with crispy, but tender crast). Huge choice of drinks and magnificent view for meditation.

You have to try the dessert. It's like a banana split on top of a barbecued banana. It was delicious. We highly recommend it. The restaurant has beautiful views of the village. You'll have worked up an appetite walking up all the narrow streets to...More

Beware. It is a high climb up many steps and tricky in the rain. Delightful setting and good adult menu. Very poor choice for children. Hope you read before taking kids!More

Hola, Yes it is a steep climb and slippery in the rain, but Frigiliana is built on big hill and has shiny stone clad streets, imagine living here. In response to our poor children's choice we have over the years tried a fair few options...More

We had a couple of 'small' dishes mid afternoon with drinks, prices were 6-8 euros a plate. Larger dishes 10-12 euros. Not the cheapest in Frigiliana but the cooking was very good indeed - many visitors were finishing lunch... More
