Love this place, I've been here loads of times and never dare to change what I eat, I always have the garlic mushrooms for a starter then the steak in homemade peppercorn sauce with potatoes, rice and veg then the brownie with vanilla ice team! My favorite meal, the steak is to die for and the peppercorn sauce never tried... More

very cozy restaurant near the church in Torrox. You are sitting in the yard and the food is very good and they have cheap prices too.

We had a table out in the courtyard area, surrounded by trees and plants. The lighting was a bit dark but it all added to the lovely atmosphere out there. We had garlic bread to start which was delicious, one of the nicest we've tried. Our main course was pork tenderloin which came with dry roasted potatoes, 4 kinds of... More

The El Figon seems to always be on top of it's game. The service, the quality of the food, the setting, it is always spot on. If you want a cheap quick meal then this isn't for you, this is a nice, no rush, good attentive service, quality food restaurant. We have been many times before and will keep returning... More

This is a hard to find restaurant, but well worth seeking out. You enter via a small door and down some stairs which open up to a stunning walled courtyard pack with plants and trees. at night this is all lit up and looks very pretty. We ate here twice and both times the food was excellent, freshly prepared and... More

We had a meal here last night with friends, all 4 of us have been many times and rated it our favourite local restaurant. Maybe it was a one off last night, but it was not a good experience. We are aware the food is freshly prepared and therefore takes longer, but almost 45 minutes for starters was too long.... More

We have used this restaurant many times but tonight was not good. We had a table booked for 8 pm and the service was incredibly slow. 45 minutes to get tne first course and another hour to get the main. My meal was good but my husbands steak was too tough to eat and was returned. We realise problems happen,... More
