“My favourite in Frigiliana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The fantastic views over Frigliana - Nerja - Mediterranean are surpassed only by the food quality, quantity and value for money. Typically Spanish fare. Will definitely return.

“A LOVELY WALK FROM THE VILLAGE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

If you are staying in the village there is a lovely walk that takes you to Bar El Cerro where you can get a superb meal with fantastic views of Frigilina and Nerja. At the far end of the old village on the road to Torrox there is Santa Cristo Restaurant. Turn left down the small road by the side of Santa Cristo and follow this road as it winds it's way down the valley through the avocado plantations. Climbing up you will pass Hotel Rural La Posada Morjsca on your right. At the top of the hill turn right at the crossroads. Continue upwards and you will find Bar El Cerro entrance on your right. If you are going at a busy time it may be advisable to reserve a table o the terrace. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The grilled fish in garlic with country potatoes is particularly recomended.
On leaving Bar El Cerro continue up the hill where you will join the Torrox/Frigiliana road. Turn right.The walk back down to Frigiliana has many superb panoramic views .
The walk from the village takes about 30 -40 minutes and a little less coming back.Time for lunch will depend on how many drinks you have !!!

“Very nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We have used bar el cerro quite a few times now and found it to be very nice
The sole fish is the best in frigiliana
The only down side is the plastic chairs
On a hot day you can stick to them.
