We ate here twice during our recent holiday and the food was delicious - oxtail, pork, seafood and king prawn and scallop kebabs all beautifully presented. Highly recommended.

Situated in the lovely village of Frigillania. We ate our meal on the roof terrace that looked out over the gorge down towards Nerja Costa. A fantastic setting that was met with excellent dining and service. A very good menu selection and the food presented was excellent.

My favourite lunch in Frigiliana is El Casino's simple, steaming bowl of clams in garlic sauce - no kissing after this one phew! I could eat it every day! I know that's not everyone's cup of tea but their extensive menu, with plenty of great fish dishes and steaks won't disappoint for lunch or dinner. Head upstairs to the larger... More
