My wife and I recently visited this restaurant and enjoyed a thoroughly excellent meal. We both had lamb and it was cooked perfectly. The restaurant has a distinct Spanish feel and we both prefer this type as opposed to the 'touristy' variety. We would strongly recommend this place.

This restuarant was recommended to us so we could not wait to taste their food. We were a party of four who entered the restaurant, we were asked if we had booked and when we said no the waiter looked at us with disgust and shook his head. It was busy which we thought was a good sign and had... More

Last night I dined at La Fresquera, a restaurant in Avenida Antonio Dominguez. A few hours earlier, I had a large (the pretty little waitress poured it in front of me) Tanqueray at the Café Epoca. I'd sought a table at La Fresquera a few nights ago, though they were full; so, on this occasion, I reserved a table. It... More

Agree with all the positive reviews below, well worth a visit, and it's busy, so maybe make a reservation. Portions are very big, my leg of lamb could have done two, and my cuttlefish starter was very big too.

Fresquera is always on our list of places for dinner. There’s an interesting menu with many dishes that you won’t find in the more touristy places in the central area. And the kitchen knows how to cook them properly. Good bread and a tapa of chickpeas was served while we looked at the menu. We looked for quite a while... More

My husband and I intended having tapas at this restaurant as we had heard that it was good, but got side-tracked with the speciality dish that was displayed for us. We had the sucking pig which was absolutely gorgeous - how do they cook the pork in order that it is so fatless, it was fantastic, not sure I have... More

This is a restaurant much overshadowed by it's larger neighbour, but is worth a go. The suckling pig is on certain dates and is well worth it. Have been told the rabbit is also superb. For starters you get a black bean dip which is lovely with very tasty bread. Also, if you go downstairs to the ladies loo you'll... More

We reserved a table, so we got a table "outside". I have to say that we also checked the meny in advance. Freshly grilled suckling pig is on monday/wednesday and Friday. Absolutely perfectly prepared, at reasonable prices and excellent service by the proud owners!

Forget the restaurants in the Safari Centre this is an excellent typically Spanish restaurant. We visited 12 months ago and were looking forward to our return. We were not disappointed, we ordered The Suckling Pig and the Leg of Lamb, both were marvellous and cooked to perfection. The wine list is very extensive and the prices are much more competitive...
