Excellent food in a wonderful garden

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... read more

Best place to eat and enjoy life in Torrox. Excellent local wine on the menu matching the food. Small place where you get a good atmosphere, large plants and a waterfall.

This was our second visit after a lovely meal on our holiday last year. Food was again excellent and the service could not be faulted. It was little chilly sat outside on a day that had been mainly overcast, so make sure you have a jumper! We will be back next year - hopefully.

Have visited a number of times over the years and is certainly one of the best restaurants in the Torrox area. Very nice setting and decent Spanish food to match, especially if you like your meat like myself. I would certainly recommend it for special occasions, and have yet to be disappointed. The staff are also very friendly so a... More

Nice location with a wery nice staff. Food is wery good, but the menu is always the same. The restaurant would profit on changing the menu once during the season.

This is my favourite restaurant on the Costa. I have been going there for 18 years, for evening meals, birthday parties, new years eve, etc, etc. Beautiful setting, in courtyard. Cannot fault the food, I like "al dente" and that's what I get, not raw. Reccomend the knuckle of lamb or the lenguado. You won't be dissapointed. Well done to... More

Our table was booked for 7pm, the door waasn't open until 7-15, we ordered our meal it took 1hr 15mins to arrive the vegetables were raw not el dente!! I agree the setting is beautiful but the food and service left a lot to be desired, we will not be rushing back.

Lovely setting and friendly service but food was actually quite 'hit and miss'. Seafood soup was very bland and veg was very, very undercooked. They also got my order wrong. I would skip El Figon. There are bettering fine dining experiences in Torrox and certainly much better value Tapas options.
