we knew that Brent and Linda were back in the uk but thought we would give it a try. My burger bun was dry and was served on a small plate no room for me to put my chips. The chips themselves were very overcooked and we could not eat them the rest of the meal was ok but we... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with fabulous views. The staff are very friendly and apart from one occasion when they seemed short staffed, the service is usually good. We tried the burgers which were very nice and extremely filling, but our favourite food was definitely the tapas which initialy we were having as starters, but on our third visit... More

I took my family here during a fortnight's holiday in Frigiliana and, despite all my sons and wife having very different likes and dislikes, there was something here that they all loved. Amongst the starters, the favourites were the chicken wings (with a unique chilli and lime dip) and the caesar salad. All the mains were wolfed down with appreciation,... More

This restaurant has two identities, the major signage outside still shows "Romantica" with the addition of Boquetillo in tiles below. The bill and the accompanying business card show "Romantica", but the menu outside and inside show "El Boquetillo - International Tapas Bar and Restaurant" so presumably this restaurant is under new management making changes. However they do actually answer the... More

Thankyou for your input and it will be taken in and addressed. we are a new team and still have some creases to iron out regarding the menu and food, dishes etc... However I can also say that i do not microwave any food. There is a commercial microwave that we use to heat two of the homemade puddings and... More

The new chef was recommended as the "best in the village". The first impression was good, the menu looks interesting and different and the place is once again tidy and welcoming. However the food was a huge disappointment and expensive for the village. The duck was overcooked and dry, it was served swimming in a plate covering pool of grease... More

We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal at Romantica. I do remember your comment about your Duck being "a little greasy" though you had finished the plate by then. Had this been mentioned during your meal we would gladly have cooked another meal for you of course free of charge, though our waiter does... More

This has long been one of our favorite restaurants, so we were apprehensive when Brent and Lynda announced that they were returning to the UK for twelve months. Our fears were unfounded. Andy, the new chef/patron is an excellent chef and his menu marks him out as a fitting successor to Brent, with an excellent individual style. This will remain... More
