Excellent choice of menu, especially the lamb dishes. Waiters so attentive and cheerful. Very cosy warm interior on a rainy autumnal night. Starters are large but perfect for 2 to share. Cordero cous cous was a new dish for me, super. Will definitely return. Super terrace with views over Frigiliana.

We went as a group of 5 and once again had a wonderful meal. The hake was beautifully cooked and tasted delicious. As were the meals of my fellow diners. Service was friendly and efficient and the views made for a perfect evening!

We recommend that you make this wonderfully run Restaurant your 1st choice in Frigiliana because the food is delicious. Our gazpacho soup was perfectly seasoned. The choice of main course is exceptional and includes Sierra Nevada favourites such as wild boar, venison (succulent and served as chops), goat. Our dessert of creme caramel drenched in Frigilianan honey beautiful. The food... More

What a lovely little place and so happy we found it. We were shown to a table outside on the terrace. The waiter who took our order spoke English and informed us of the specials, I opted for the mixed kebab and my fiancee had the homemade lasagne. Both dishes presented beautifully and tasted even better. For dessert I had... More

my girlfriend and I had a great meal here last night, right at the top of the village with superb views. I had the lamb with miel de cana which is the local sugar cane honey, beautiful. My girlfriend had medallions of pork in pepper sauce, lovely too and the meat was perfectly cooked with good presentation on the plate.... More

Another restaurant with views to die for in Frigiliana. Also another great restaurant in a village that has quite a few. We've been here a few times before over the years and always remembered good food. Well I'm happy to say that continues to be the case. You certainly can't complain about the view and we were sat right at... More

........ and good food. We were lucky enough to get a table out on the terrace where we enjoyed the views and watched the setting sun whilst enjoying tasty food at a reasonable price.

Having visited Frigiliana before we were drawn once again to this little restaurant we visited some two years before. Nothing has changed, great views, nice staff, food reasonable and stayed for the sunset over the mountains. Steep walk up into the centre of the village not for people with walking difficulties. About 7 tables on balcony and includes inside eating... More
