Good food, great view

We were lucky to get a table on the rooftop. The views are amazing! Service was very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. We had chicken, veal entrecot and pork shoulder all very tasty. With a bottle of very good white rioja and coffee the meal came to just over 50€, excellent value... read more

Keep walking up the lanes in Frigiliana and your efforts will be rewarded with one of the best views down the valleys towards the coast. The best seafood soup I have ever had and lovely fresh fish. Great friendly staff and very good value. Well worth a visit and the village is another 'Mijas' with nice individual shops, very pretty... More

First I ordered a large beer which came out in a wine glass (a bit unorthodox but whatever I'm on holiday).Didn't have to wait long for food, we were waited on all night by a lovely young Spanish woman. The food came out within half an hour and my spaghetti bolognaise was nice. However, I would not recommend the lasagne... More

We returned to this lovely restaurant after a break of a year. We reserved a table on the top terrace earlier in the day and we had a lovely corner table with an amazing view. The waiting staff are so kind, efficient and generous and the food is simply gorgeous. The portions are generous too and the flavours are amazing.

I went there with my girlfriend to enjoy which I must say I did cod they were terrific. But the food was really bad prepared the waitress really really impolite and disrespectful towards us and they were even rushing us to leave asap so we barely enjoyed the views.

El Casino is located near the top of the cobbled street which winds through the village, but the steep climb is well-rewarded. We sat on the terrace, which offers superb view over the village and the surrounding countryside. The menu is varied and daring, with game dishes featuring prominently. I was tempted by the Kid in Garlic, and also by... More

Delicious Spanish food which all the family enjoyed. We had starters of goats cheese with honey and fish soup, and main courses of wild boar and deer in the most delicious sauces. There are cheaper options such as lasagne and spaghetti, which my children enjoyed. Great service, fantastic food and amazing views of this gorgeous town from the terrace. Booking... More
