The sea bass was flaky and wonderful, served with couscous, vegetable and baked potato. The hot bread was just out of the oven. The goat cheese starter was served with a wonderful balsamic reduction and was fantastic. My husband had the Gambos Salad (shrimp) and loved it. They were able to convert a wonderful wok dish to meet the needs... More

The food was very well seasoned which is not common in Spain (it can be bland and not taste very much). I took the clams with some fries on the side. Well cooked clams with taste of garlic and wine. Tasted some of the others food as well. Really good sauce and we'll balanced meals. Be hungry when you get... More

Ate here early November after a lovely meal in July this year. Once again the food and service was first class. Food and wine very good and our waiter provided fantastic service, will definitely be returning.

Lovely views and a lovely little restaurant. We had brilliant service . The seafood was delicious and fresh. The wine was also light and refreshing. The only criticism is because of the food you are swarmed by tiny flies which is very annoying when you haven't finished your delicious meal so maybe some citronella candles would be useful. Other than... More

We dined on the rooftop terrace, overlooking the Old Town and valley below - lovely light warm breeze on a very warm October night. Service was brisk and very friendly and the food was a delicious, simple, yet very tasty. I had Pork fillet in a Marsala type sauce, Herself had Prawns & Scallops, both served with a Baked Potato...

The views are great, and we had a great table after booking it the day before. We found the menu a bit limited and the service, although friendly, was slow and the waiter seemed disinterested, You won't be disappointed, however there are better places in Frigiliana.

The food was at. best ordinary - and not at all as expected after reading trip advisor reviews. We have been here 4 days and all meals have been better than this, despite the fact that these restaurants were ranked lower. We recommend El mirador and Garden restaurant.

Fantastic views out to sea, quite difficult to get to if you are not good going up hills but worth it if you can. Food and drink reasonably priced.

We were recommended this by a chap who rented us the villa. I had a really nice piece of bass and my wife had chicken breast. Both nicely cooked and nicely presented. Service was polite and attentive. But the view is amazing.
