Wonderful roof terrace and superb food

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...

Food was mediocre. Did not appear to have enough staff. Not easy to accomodate a large group. Bolognaise and lasagne a good choice.

A beautiful restaurant roof top terrace with phenomenal views above Frigiliana all the way down to Nerja. Fantastic wide selection of food and all cooked beautifully. We were a table of eight and we each ordered 8 different starters and 8 different main courses. All were delicious and served by the friendliest staff with pride. I would never miss eating... More
