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

Our favourite place to eat. Run by a brother and sister team, the food is always excellent and yes the service can be slow when it's busy but with those views, does it really matter? Relax and enjoy. Prices are fair and Conchita though rushed off her feet sometimes is attentive and friendly and remembers you when you return,m something... More

Nice little bar and restaurant with astounding views from the terrace to the mountains, the sea and the village of Frigiliana. Very friendly lady owner who looked after us superbly. Food is clearly home cooked and delicious, portions very generous. Decent prices. Definitely worth a visit on a calm sunny day! Visited several times during our trip.

Have returned to this family restaurant on each visit to the locality. A little out of the way on "campo" roads, but its as Spanish as can be. Good choice, fairly priced and good wine. If you have a good appetite this is the place. With a pool available for guests and fantastic views over Frigiliana and Nerja add this... More

This is a wonderful place to visit on a warm sunny day. The view is marvellous. Excellent country cooking at reasonable prices. When in season, the beans and ham are the best I have ever tasted! Friendly service.
