Many places in Frigiliana suffer from catering for the tourist masses. This bar, however, doesn't. It's authentic and whilst the menu is not extensive, the food is close to perfection. Added to this, the service is really good. The gambas pil pil and grilled hake were really tasty. Plus, it's insanely cheap.

Family run restaurant in the heart of Frigiliana. Great service. Tapas are good. Food is typical Spanish and only 5€ for any dish on a Friday! Great value!

Visited this restaurant during a recent trip to Frigiliana. The restaurant is very small but in February this wasn't a problem. It might be in the summer though. The menu is quite small, couldn't see any starters or desserts but the main courses consist of 25 dishes. The choices are simple but the food is good and very reasonably priced.... More

Small authentic Spanish bar/restaurant with a lots of local atmosphere. Excellently run by Eduardo, Sandra and team. Great food, great value for money. Gambas pil pil here is one of, if not the best in the area.
