We started coming here twelve years ago and I am still amazed every time I go diwn the steps to this restaurant. It is placed in a courtyard full of flowering plants - beautifully lit at night. Food is consistently good and far above anyone else's in Torrox. Generous servings with lightly cooked vegetables and rice. It's on the higher... More

This was our 3rd visit to El Figon. We had visited while on holiday the year before and promised ourselves we would return. The restaurant is accessed down a flight of stairs so not suitable for everyone. It is in a flower filled courtyard which is very pretty. Food and service are excellent and prices are reasonable. The menu is... More

Book ahead for this hidden gem! From the street this place looks unprepossessing, but it hides a magical garden hideaway which is a cool and lovely retreat. The food and service are excellent and it's somewhere to come for a special meal, although you won't pay silly money for it! Very good value considering the high quality that is on... More

I think our third visit to this great little restaurant tucked away through a small narrow gated door in Torrox Pueblo. It is basically a small courtyard in the middle of what is effectively the walls of the surrounding buildings. There are various plants and trees in the courtyard giving it a unique feel of being in the middle of... More

Loved this little restaurant in Torrox Costa. Have visited 2 or 3 times. The service is slow and relaxed and friendly and efficient and the food is really beautiful.

The setting of this restaurant is lovely in a hidden courtyard garden. The food was very good and the wine delicious. The place was very busy and although this should have been expected as most of the tables were reserved there were not enough staff to cope and so the service was slow. Having said that the staff were friendly... More

Couldn't fault a thing... the food, service, location (in a hanging garden) and wine were amazing. And the price was superb for what we had. You have to come here without doubt. The entrance is signed although there is no "shop front"

This restaurant is amazing. The tables (from approximately April until November) are located outside, in a beautiful garden. The menu is not huge (which is a good thing in my book), but they have a good variety of dishes, ranging from salads and soups, fish and seafood to meats and pasta. The quality of the food is excellent. They also... More
