I was really looking forward to visiting Los Caracoles as I expected it to have something special. Although the hobbit hole set up is cute there was little atmosphere. There was hardly anything left on the menu and what we did have was very average. Looking around lots of people seemed to be leaving food which would suggest they weren't... More

Lovely night here. The location is fantastic with wonderful views. The food was really nice - we had chicken in mustard, pork in red wine and steak - all really succulent! The crepes for dessert were lovely too. I would definitely go again.

This place is in an amazing location, with fantastic views over Frigiliana, the mountains, and coast. And it has a pretty good chef who - one exception apart - prepares very, very good meals. The one blot on our night was the quality of his "special", which was lamb chops. A full plate, but mostly of bones and fat. in... More

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
