We've been to El Cerro several times and it never fails to impress. Tucked away 3km in the hills beyond Frigiliana it's definitely worth making the effort to drive out and find it. The service may be a little quirky at times but the stunning views down over the countryside and sea more than make up for that. The food... More

Had a meal here for 4 adults and 2 children just last night (23rd). We had a lovely table overlooking the village of Frigiliana and surrounding area which was breathtaking. We ordered several dishes across the menu to share amongst us all and were advised by the waitress when we had ordered enough - and we certainly did not go... More

If you fancy a bit of (good) home cooking served with a sigh & a touch of 'why are we so popular' - this is the place for you. Perched on a hillside above Frigiliana you can be assured of decent food, no frills with the added bonus of stunning views and a pool where you can chill. We wondered... More

A little up the Mountain road out of Frigiliana..or, if adventurous, up the mountain track (My preferred route for fun) This restaurant perches on the top of the mountain ridge overlooking Frigiliana which, as the light goes and the street lights come on, is something to behold! Booking, I think is essential as it can easily fill up and to... More

Another wonderful meal at El Cerro in relaxed surroundings overlooking the Frigliana mountains. Everything is freshly cooked to order, served by Concita the owner. The food is superb and a family favourite not to be missed whenever we are visiting. Always best to book in advance to ensure you get a table, We will be back soon!

This is a little piece of Spanish heaven. The view is fantastic and worth the hairpin bends in the roads up from frigliana. The food is gorgeous just simple home cooking and such good value for money. The house wine is great and only 1.30 euros ;-) Just go and try, the meatballs and spanish omelette are my favourite but... More

The reviews are a bit mixed and I was nervous of the scary waitress. But we had a lovely lunch and she was very friendly and welcoming even though we were the only tourists there. Food was good quality simple fare and the views are stunning . We are going back.

We visited here a couple of years ago. The waitress (and I believe co owner) seemed to do everything. She was quick to take the orders and we realised we needed patience as the kitchen is small. When the food came it was worth the wait. Everything seemed to be homemade and tasted gorgeous. The views are spectacular so the... More
