No better place to lunch leisurely in sunshine...

Each time my wife and I visit neighbouring Nerja, we make sure we eat at least once at La Taberna del Sacristan. Usually following a visit to the lovely church overlooking the adjacent square, we get there in time to find a table in the best spot to enjoy an al fresco meal. In doing so, the scene... read more

This is a lovely restaurant in front of the church. The food is really good with numerous meat and fish choices. It is a bit more pricey than some of the other restaurants we go to more frequently but it is always worth a visit as a treat on at least one night of your holiday. A nice wine menu... More

What a beautiful setting in a lovely square where the church is lit up at night and you sit outside enjoying the lovely ambiance. We went here 3 times in 10 days and could not recommend this place highly enough. I cannot eat shellfish and the steps the staff went to in accommodating my preferences were truly exceptional, there is... More

We love coming here to eat - every time we visit Spain. The food good quality and prices low. The staff are lovely and friendly - but - the setting is PERFECT. Sitting outside, watching the Spanish señoras go to church, Senores sitting watching them go and the locals just doing 'family' - all adds up to make a wonderful... More

As a regular guest at La Taberna del Sacristan I saw that the opening hours mentioned here on tripadvisor are not correct. La Taberna del Sacristan opens every day from 10.00 to 16.00 h and from 19.00 to 24.00 h except Tuesdays, when they have a rest. Now that I`m here I can only repeat my previous review. Excellent food... More

Ate here on 17 October 2014. Last here just over a year ago. Not disappointed. Wonderful food. Tasty and plentiful. Excellent service. Just over 40 Euros for 2 mains, bottle of wine, water, and coffee. Noted that the place that shares the square -- which I don't remember from last year, so might be new -- had about three customers.... More

you will find this restaurant in the church square, be carefull though as another restaurant has pinched the front of the square which is a shame as they are 2 star compared to the 5 star Taberna del Sacristan. The food and service is superb and if you get served by Miguel than your day will be complete. Massive portions,... More

My husband and I had a delicious meal here during our week in Frigiliana. I had the fish kebabs and my husband had the fish of the day - Sea Bream. Both were accompanied by tasty mixed veg and a baked potato with aoili - yum. All the fish was perfectly cooked and with delicious flavours and sauces to accompany... More

we enjoyed coffees and cakes in the sun whilst sitting in the very quaint square outside the church in Frigiliana. Frigiliana is a lovely Spanish village with white washed houses and very narrow streets and lanes leading up from the main town. It can be a bit of of a hike but well worth it.

Our hosts at Arcos de la Almona, Javier and Rosario, recommended this restaurant to us and I have to say we were not disappointed. We ate there on six consecutive evenings which I think speaks for itself. We did try three other restaurants but they did not come close to the quality of Sacristan. Guillermo and his staff were excellent... More
