The restaurant/bar where you usually meet the locals in the bar and tourists outside. Favorite dish "black pasta" and Gambas al pil-pil. Usually sunshine and friendly staff.

Probably packed with tourists normally as it is located where the tour buses stop. However, in the early morning, this place is filled with locals coming in for a cup of coffee and breakfast. In fact, it seems like this is the only place to have breakfast in Frigiliana. We asked around and everyone pointed us to this bar for... More

This restaurant is situated right at the centre of the village near (but not too near) the playground and bus stop. The food is really good which can be a surprise as it looks like a place for a quick bite before heading off to explore the village. The other surprise is the prices.. I found them very reasonable and... More

It's OK if you have arrived by bus and can't be bothered to explore as it's just up from the bus stop. We only stopped for a coffee and a small beer. Had I walked up the road a bit and gone to the bar to the right of el ingenio, I could have had three drinks for what I... More

Bar Virtudes was in a central location on the border of the new and old town of Frigiliana. Our favorite meal was the monk fish/prawns. This is where we were introduced to a local speciality - Fried Milk, surprisingly very tasty.

This is a nice little restaurant which overlooks the village of Frigiliana. Waiters are friendly and service is good but I thought it was a little overpriced for what we got. We all had the goats cheese salad which was tasty and well presented but pricey at €8.50. They charge extra for bread too.

The food and drink are ok. It seems to be the first place tourists stop off on the bus. The service is always friendly and the food ok too.

This place would make a famous British TV-chef using the F-word many times. Half of the food is prefab, and the strange use of curry in many dishes are making strange flavours. Amongst others we got a burger that tasted "strange", a shellfish flooded in pesto and a strange variant of aubergine with curry. Only pos - we did not... More
