We hadn't booked, but went on what must have been a quiet evening as there was no issue getting a table. We opted for the mixed tapas plate, getting a good variety of... read more

I have been to Frigiliana several times and I always look forward to going to Al Fuente. The food and atmosphere there is amazing. Jan, Linda and their staff are always friendly and the service there is excellent. We had to book most nights as they are always busy but will always have a chat with you. Just love this... More

Came here last year and was one of the places on our "must go back" list for this year. Took a last minute booking and was rewarded with an excellent tapas meal late in the evening. They do have other options but it is famed for the tapas dishes. They only have three tables outside so booking is necessary if... More

We stopped at Al Fuente for lunch while walking around Frigiliana, and were super happy with this family-run place. The food was superb, both the vegetarian options and the meat tapas. Excellent value, and great atmosphere on the terrace on the quiet street.

Cosy, friendly restaurant. Excellent tapas & service with a limited wine list but well described & very good value. Well worth a visit.

I recommend their vegetarian tapas plate for two! And their tinto de verano was a little better than average I would say.

All food freshly prepared on the premises from local ingredients; varied and unusual menu incorporating a number of vegetarian options. Small seating area outside, larger seating area in the (small) restaurant inside. Courteous and attentive service by the proprietors Jan and Linda.

Superb Tapas fully aware of gluten free and vegetarian requirements. We had a GF tapas plate for two to share- 'everything' was delicious.. Then to top that a GF cheesecake amongst other GF offerings.. The cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted.. Honest...even before my coeliac diagnosis... Will be back :-)
