“Superb Spanish food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Just love Higuera... Good food, Good Choice and Good Prices. The restaurant itself is neat, clean and tidy and if you are there during the winter...a great open fire!

“Superb food, eat outside on the pavement if you can.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

La Higuera Bar-Restaurante was recommended by British friends who live nearby in Coin.
It was a balmy evening so we elected to sit outside on one of the pavement tables - and watched the world go by!
The menu (in Spanish and English can be viewed at http://www.restaurantelahiguera.com/en/restaurante-la-higuera.html

As a starter I had Calamaritos (baby squid) whilst my wife had Calamares (slightly older squid). We then shared the most delectable Chateaubriand which was perfectly cooked between rare and medium rare (a good compromise), the waitress understood exactly what we wanted. The Steak came with vegetables which were well cooked and well presented.
We drank a couple of glasses of Señorío de la Sierra Copa Rioja (€2.50 each) and a bottle of Melior Matarromera (€14.50).
The total for the two of us was €116.20.

If you want a casual but (slightly) expensive dinner I thoroughly recommend La Higuera Bar-Restaurante in Alhaurin el Grande.

“Excellent meal - best in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were taken here by Spanish friends who recommended it highly, and we were not dissapointed. Menu is in Spanish but waitervspoke some English. For starter I had Galacian Octopus (warm slithersvover fried potato), the leanest andvtastiest octopus I have ever eaten. For main course my wife and I had Chateaubriand, perfectly cooked, red in the middle, even vegies werengreat. With wine, the meal cost €35 each, a bit up market for local prices but well worth it.
