A beautiful quirky restaurant on the Frigiliana to Torrox road. Built like snail shells with fantastic views of the mountains and the sea. We had lunch there choosing four of the starters with a bottle of good white Riocha. Beautiful good cooked to order. Particularly liked the prawns Piri Piri and the local speciality of tempured aubergines with honey. Just... More

This is a review of both the hotel and the restaurant. The hotel is situated close to the top of a mountain ridge that overlooks Frigiliana and Nerja. The views are great and the room terrace also allows visitors to enjoy the wonderfully quiet location (you can hear digs barking from miles away because of the resonance of the mountain... More

I first visited this restaurant about 14 years ago and was not disappointed with a recent follow-up visit. It deserves 5 stars for the terrific location high on a hill a few kilometers from Frigiliana with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and to the coast. The design of the restaurant building is highly unusual and the decor is groovy... More

We came to this hotel/restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. The drive from the coast is a bit windy, but worth it. We had a very good lunch on the terrace overlooking the valley. The waitress spoke very good English and the service was good.

Los Caracoles is an unusual hotel and restaurant above the Frigiliana-Torrox road, with a very quirky and stylish design. The buildings are in the shape of snail shells (hence the name - caracoles is Spanish for snails). The views across to the mountains, Frigiliana and the Mediterranean are fantastic. 2 of us had lunch at Los Caracoles on a sunny... More

Just getting to Los Caracoles on the steep and winding road from Torrox to Frigiliana is an adventure in itself, but the adventure does not end when you finally drive into the car park at this restaurant balanced on the edge of the mountain, in fact its only really beginning! Like the hotel rooms below it, the restaurant at Los... More

We have eaten at Los Caracolos over the last several years and we have always had fantastic meals. This years visit was no exception, the service was great, the wine cold and the food first class. My husband had the taster menu which I helped share and we were very impressed with. My son had the chicken and mustard dish... More
