Good - and totally (boringly?) reliable

We have a holiday home in Frigiliana and can't believe our good fortune to be three minutes walk from the best restuarant in town. The menu has been pretty much unaltered in our 16 years here - but, hey, if it ain't broke, why fix it? - We can arrive unannounced after 9 months away and our regular... read more

We visited Las Chinas today for a meal at lunch time. We were a group of ten including two babies and the service we received was excellent. We received some lovely bread, pate and salad before our starters were served and some complimentary liqueurs with our bill. All the food we had was delicious with good sized portions and we...

Original Andalusian meal with friendly, knowlegable staff. Even though, the location might not be the best, the food makes up for it and the service-minded staff. We usually bring dogs and they can join at the table no problem.

We recently visited this restaurant as we were staying in Frigiliana. A lot of restaurants are closed at this time of year so we were lucky to find a restaurant that was able to accommodate our group of 7. The restaurant was very busy and the waitress was rushed off her feet. However, she was very friendly and although the... More

With 10 days vacation in the beautiful - but "artificial" Village of Frigiliana - you really want to escape from the many tourist restaurants, and enjoy a more local style, which you may find in the new part of Frigiliana. We found Chinas to fulfill this need. The menu Card had many choices at reasonable prices, and the waitress was... More

The Restaurant was very clean, once seated the waitress tended to our every requirement. We were shown the fresh meat & fish on display. Once the order had been taken, our food was being prepared and cooked freshly. While we were waiting we shared a complementary starter of pate and mixed salad. Our fresh steak & fish were cooked to... More
