Came here 2 years ago and see loved the food, bit "on the road" closeness but OK Two years later food was average if best and a 45 minute wait to get a freekin avocado salad was ridiculous (there was only another 6 people in the restaurant) There are much better!

Service was abysmal, I had to go into the kitchen to find the waiter to ask for a drink. Food is mediocre at best. Wine is awful. The views are nice though.

Called in for Menu Del Dia at lunch time and we were amazed at the quality of the food albeit a fairly small selection for the three course offer of €10. We each had three different courses and swapped and tasted each others. Fantastic flavour every one. There is a comprehensive Menu on offer and we cannot wait to return... More

Very quiet evening, not many cliental, but service and food excellent. Home made burger with additional toppings (for small extra charge) was wonderful, as was the attention to service. Lovely position, overlooking the surrounding countryside vista, but at the time of our visit, just too cool to eat outside. Sadly, lacked atmosphere, but this did not detract ftom the qualty...

This has been the meeting point for me and villa owners for some years. This trip I actually decided to give it a try for lunch. So glad I did. The food is good, fresh home cooked food. The service was excellent, friendly, helpful and cheerful, not something you always get in Spanish eateries. The choice of items on the... More

We have eaten here 3 times in the past week- both lunch and dinner and we think it is one of the best restaurants in Frigiliana. The lunchtime menu del dia is varied and only 10 euros . The quality of the food and the friendly service can't be beaten - we can't recommend this restaurant highly enough - give... More

Having moved into Frigiliana we waited for this renowned bar/restaurant to open after the Winter holidays and we weren't disappointed. It may be slightly outside the village but is so worth those extra few steps! The view is fantastic ! But the food certainly surpasses the view ! The chef certainly knows his craft and the food is fantastic !... More

We went to this restaurant today after reading a number of good reviews that indicated a good choice of dishes on the menu, including the menu of the day. We were very disappointed in the choice of dishes on the menu of the day as two out of the three mains the dishes were English (sausages and mash and steak... More
