We just happened to stumble across this place when we were wandering aimlessly through the back streets of Frigiliana and decided to pop in for lunch. We shared various plates of tapas. To me was a more modern take on traditional tapas, which I loved. The black pudding was lovely, as were the fried whole green peppers, prawns... And to... More

We did wait some time to be seated but we hadn't booked in advance so that's OK. The food was good and the location is great.

We booked after reading all of the fantastic reviews and to say we were disappointed is an understatement! 7.30 on a Saturday night and the main course three of us ordered was not available! We wish we had walked out then! The fish we did order almost tasted off, the rest of the meal was inedible and swiming in grease.... More

Sorry its taken me a long time to reply, i believe this is when we had taken salmon off the menu, 2 people opted for dorada. The comment about your plates were swimming in grease is absurd, our fish is either grilled over coal or a la plancha where very little oil will be used and served with patatas a... More

After reading all the reviews my partner and I were looking forward to eating here. We ordered tapas which I would say was nothing spectacular just average. We waited over 45 minutes after we'd eaten for someone to come and clear our table which they didn't so we decided to go and pay and leave. We'd hoped for coffee and... More

Sorry you were unhappy with your visit to our restaurant. With such a long wait i can only assume we were quite busy and not serving the usual microwave or mayonaise based salad options things can take a little longer. If you feel your table was overlooked then again im sorry, but a quick signal to a waiter could have... More

We are trying not to review restaurants unless we have visited the establishment a few times. After all, since 2005, and all over Andalucia, we have experienced inconsistency on a grand scale. You dine out somewhere one week, and it's brilliant. You go there the next, and the same food is terrible. No such problems up the Garden where everything... More

The Garden Restaurant is a restaurant with a terrific location overlooking the hills and mountains leading down to the city of Nerja by the sea. We weren't so thrilled with the food though,although what we had for dinner was in no way bad. We had the boned chicken, which was very nicely grilled. Still, I think that the menu was... More

Hola, it is possible you were here in the 3 cultures festival when we reduced and changed our menu to make it more manageable. If not and this years summer menu was running then I'm sorry our selection did not meet your expectations, our menu features a wide range of food from tapas , salads, sharing plates, grilled fish, bbq...

Have been coming here for years now & always go back when in Frigiliana as its our favourite. Views are stunning and the tapas are just so delicious. There are cheaper places to eat but this place is worth it.
