Me, my wife and our friends have been coming to this place for many years for coffees, drinks, tapas or full meals. And it gets better and better. It boasts a very welcoming atmosphere and staff, and food that's improved from last year's high. It's small and cosy, but has half a dozen tables. For better or worse, the clientele... More

Just visited for a glass of wine, to check the place out and we ended up staying for more wine and food too. We had the prawns with salad and the salmon, everything was excellent and the whole bill was just €25, great value!

As always, never disappointed at "Eduardo's" - excellent service, food in an authentic spanish bar. Don't miss this if you visit Frigiliana. C/Chorruelo.

Heard a little noise and followed it, came across this most delightful place. Enjoyed selection of tapas, wine and beer. No pretence, what you see is what you get. Tuesday happened to be €1 for drinks, but come here whenever.

As regular visitors to Frigiliana we never miss going to see Eduardo and his family. Booking on a Friday is a must as its everything €5 day. We always share the prawns pil pil as a starter, it's great. The sole, rosada and pork are all favourites. A great little bar.

A stay in Frigiliana would not be complete without a visit to El Senor! Service is always efficient and friendly and the food great value. The gambas pil-pil is a favourite as is the raciones of ham and cheese. I don't recognise the previous descriptions of the bar being dirty.....it is quaint, has character and one of the few traditional... More
