We had a lovely family meal here. The setting is lovely, and the food excellent. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Torrox.

We visited tonight as party of six with two children under ten. Not the easiest place to locate but once we found it we were impressed with the setting as you go down stairs to the courtyard setting amongst plants and jasmine trees so the smell is gorgeous. The food was brilliant and the portions very generous. We paid in... More

We had tried to visit this restaurant some time ago but it was during the winter when it was closed and we actually though it had closed permanently. Thank goodness it hasn't and finally we got there. The entrance is easy to miss but as you go through it and down the steps you find yourself in an oasis of... More

El Figon is a beautiful restaurant, a calm oasis. We had another beautiful meal on 16th August, this was our fourth visit to the restaurant during our holiday in Torrox. The Madallions of Sirloin are to be recommended, a huge portion and truly delicious. The Sole is also very good. The staff are gracious and attentive. You will definitely enjoy... More

Fantastic food, great service and beautiful location. The best meal we had during our 3 weeks in Spain this summer. Also very reasonable prices and a good menu for children. A bit hard to find, but you will be stunned when you enter the courtyard… I recommend to reserve a table in good time.

Fantastic food, excellent service. Clearly high quality food cooked to order. Good childrens menu. Simply the best meal we had on our holiday this year. Make sure you book though, as we tried before to get a table but all reserved. Great atmosphere in a beautiful courtyard.

Until you descend the steps, you have no idea of the calm cool oasis that you will find at El Figon. We have been visiting the restaurant for the last six or so years, and have yet to have a bad meal or unhelpful service. If you are in Torrox, you should make a point of having a meal here.... More

This hard to find gem still keeps it up. We heard about it, when we first started vacationing in Torrox in 2003 and have been here numerous times since then. The courtyard is always immaculate with its serene look. Tables are set between trees and flowers and it's never loud or crowded. Food is excellent. No need to say more....... More

This restaurant is best visited on warm balmy evenings. The inside dining experience lacks the charm of the outside, meaning that it is only really offers that something special from early/mid June until mid September perhaps. I have visited with family and friends on numerous occasions and never had a bad experience. The tables always have reserved signs on -... More
