Great find in Frig

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.

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.

Great bar, great people. Love the familiar atmosphere and the home cooking. We live in Frigiliana since June 2014 and it's one of our favorite spots. Recommended highly!

Eduardo and his family will welcome you with open arms, A great place to eat. I ALWAYS come her when in Frigiliana. It's lovely home cooked food, never going to be Michelin star, but also so much more. Great prices for great food and a wonderful atmosphere. Don' miss.

This local bar run by Edwardo and his family has a great friendly atmosphere. The food is simple and consistently good. We have spent a month in Frigiliana on two separate occasions now and both times El Señor has been our favourite spot. Yes it is rustic, maybe basic but we are always made to feel at home and enjoy... More

Unassuming little place with friendly owner ready with a smile and greeting- we have gone there several times and have left completely satisfied. The best sardinas a la plancha and langostinos a la plancha in Frigiliana. The value for your euro and the generous portions make this place a staple of many a tourist. Check out the black and white... More
