My wife and I have been visiting this part of Spain for 3 years now. We go around 3 times a year. Although we like to vary the places we go to eat, this is definetly our favourite! It is ran by a very busy Husband & Wife team. We call this place Carla's Bar, as I believe the Owner... More

This is a great family run bar and restaurant, the menu is simple and very local all the food is locally sourced and freshly cooked. The view over the valley to the sea is stunning especially if you are there at sunset. The garlic chicken is great but do not expect it to be in nice fillets, it is rustic... More

We spent a week in a villa just outside Frigiliana and this was our closest bar/restaurant (1.9km away!). We ate here twice in a row and I have to say it was one of the best, most authentic meals we had during my stay. On the first night we reserved a table and the lovely hostess gave us a seat... More

We have just spent a week in a remote property about 20 minutes walk down the dirt track from Bar El Cerro. Every night we walked the 20 minutes up the hill in 30 degree heat for our evening meal.The first night we were there we instantly got the feeling this was a local bar, very authentic. Not speaking any... More

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!
