Visited the Balcon twice during a weeks visit to Frigiliana at the beginning of June this year.The food was brilliant and very good value. Service excellent. Really worth a visit or two!

Excellent, we have been going here when we come on holidays for 3 years and it's always the best place we eat. It is a must to visit, especially the sticky toffee pudding !!

We've been to this restaurant many times over the years and it never disappoints. Visited again after a gap of two years and found that the food is still absolutely brilliant. Make no mistake, this is probably the finest cuisine in the area and it's great value too.

This has become one of our must-go-to places whenever we are in Nerja. The food is excellent and, given the quality, very reasonably priced. The fixed price lunch menu is really good. The menu is small but we always find at least two things we want; the staff and chef are friendly and welcoming; the service superb; and I had... More

By far the best place for lunch in Frigiliana. Quality 3 course menu del dia, beautifully presented in nice surroundings. Bargain price of 10€. Great evening menu too. Highly recommended.

We had the 10 euro menu and a bottle of excellent wine. There was however only one thing that I found that I did not like. The chef went... More

Balcon de Frigiliana is an excellent restaurant, with an english chef and and cheery italian waiter. The menu, which varies with the seasons, is so good, you can choose any item and be confident you will enjoy it. We have never left a morsel on the plate. To sit outside, looking down the valley, towards Nerja, is cool and peaceful.... More

Seems to have gone downhill over the last year. They attempt to serve some version of 'fine dining, modern European'. But in reality , probably because it doesnt get much custom, it amounts to an assembly of processed products. Packaged trout, chicken, pig cheeks and sauces, assembled with packaged rice and potato products. And not the cheapest. Starters were fine,... More

Had not visited this restaurant before as we stayed at the opposite side of the village on our last trip to Frigliana but were glad that we found it this time. The food we had was beautiful on each occasion especially worth a mention were the pigs cheeks, the chilli prawn starter and the garlic and parmesan chips. The waiter... More
