Menu del dia for 10€. Cooked for you by a very talented chef (Peter). Changes daily. Great front of house waiter (Ali) makes the best coffee in Frigiliana. Brilliant English breakfast served between 12 and 2 and all for 5€ (giving it away) Alhambra beer on draught and draught cider. Why wouldn't you visit.

Our 3rd visit to Frigiliana. For me the best place in Nerja! A real beautiful place to walk around. Taking in the beauty of this timeless village. Some lovely terrace restaurants with stunning views and very good food and wine!

Terrace a bit disappointing but a pleasant interior with a little bit of character. We had a table by a window and enjoyed the breeze. At 10 euros for a very fresh and tasty three course lunch, served by a nice friendly waiter it was well worth the visit.

Service is also excellant and if you eat outside the views are the best in... More

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!
