We went to El Adarve because we had read, that it should be one of the best restaurants ind Frigiliana. But it was not. The vine was disappoiningly. We had tunafish - fresh from the day - as the waiter said. But the cook did not a good job. The tuna came in with rice, potatoes, cuscus and a tomato... More

My partner and I have visited this restaurant a handful of times over the years but in the last year it appears they have really upped their game! The view has always been amazing (I would recommend arriving at sunset to really enjoy) but when we visited in September 2014 they have truly turned to 5 star service. As well... More

A large group of us, expats all, get together every couple of months to descend on a village restaurant for the evening, which has to be a challenge for many venues. El Adarve rose to that challenge admirably. Obviously, the menu was restricted - a selection of tapas to start, choice of hake or pork for the main course, and... More

El Adarve is located in the old picturesque part of Frigiliana and you need to climb a few steps by going up Calle Zacatin and turning right, but the views over the town and the food make it worthwhile. It is a very traditional Spanish restaurant with seating indoors but also a terrace overlooking the town and the valley. We... More

My wife and I thoroughly recommend El Ardave restaurant which provides and promotes the glories of Andalusian cuisine in particular Frigiliana honey and wine. The owners and staff are enthusiastic about their extensive menu, almost salivating over the choice they offer, with today's special being grilled red deer chops which were perfectly cooked, succulent and melted in the mouth.

We ate here between two visits to The Garden restaurant, which put El Adarve at a definite disadvantage, which it wouldn't otherwise have had. Couldn't fault the friendly, good humoured service. I ate wild boar in a chestnut sauce which was beautiful. My partner was less impressed with his lamb steaks which although tasty were thin with large bones. We... More

Just had a lovely relaxed evening here with good food and friendly staff. We came a couple of times last year and enjoyed it and this time was no exception . It's worth the climb up through the old town to visit such a nice restaurant .
