Good food and amazing views

I love it here. You can have drinks and great local food while overlooking the sea and mountains. You can't help feeling so lucky and grateful to have the chance to be here.

We visited here and had a chicken and bacon Caesar salad each. The chicken and bacon were shredded to extreme lengths and the quality of the chicken was questionable as I found black bits through mine and the chicken was very dry. The salad itself was nice. The views were fantastic. Staff were ok. Definitely nicer places to dine in... More

What a great restaurant in the heart of Frigiliana. If you are lucky to find a table on the roof terrace, the views are spectacular. The food is simply amazing and prices are good for the quality. Service is great. I cannot find fault with this restaurant. I will be back.

Good Spanish food and very friendly staff. They were really lovely with our grandson, and not knowing that we had eaten there before on halloween gave us 3 magnum ice creams for trick and treat!

We were looking for lunch on a hot October day and passed this place. We went in and were shown to a table on the roof with fabulous views. You often think that's it but this place had great food and service. The service was understated but exceptionally good and the food was fantastic-only the second time I have eaten... More

We have visited El Casino on several occasions. We love the views from the top terrace. The food is very good and the staff couldn't be more accommodating.

Tapas restaurant we planned to eat at was closed and we had spotted El Casino on a walk up through the old town of Frigiliana. We sat on the balcony, (only three tables for two which made for a great ambience), shaded from the hot sun but with a fabulous view down to the coast. There is also a rooftop... More

We really liked the food here-the fish kebab was amazing but the atmosphere was dull and there are not many tables outside to eat. The waitress was ok a bit surly but all in all a good meal for our first night out in Frigiliana. Give it a go but don't expect the earth to move...
