Excellent & reliable local bar/ cafe

Once again we stopped here for cafes con leche and tostadas before setting off for a walk up the Higueron (or previously the Liman Trail etc). Friendly, popular, well- located with a fine terrace out at the front for when it's sunny, and they do mean bocadillos to take away for hungry walkers.

I have been to this bar several times - a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very good value, fresh food, large portions and very nice staff.

We waited for around an hour for the food, which was average spanish, i.e. not anything special. The tables around us were filled with locals, and they got speedy, friendly service. Tourists like us were ignored. I got a boring salad, no spices, herbs, dressing of any sort. But a big, filling plate. The eggplant gratin with pinenuts and raisins... More

We have visited this place before because of the location. This is the last time. We had to wait 1 hour to get the food. But the calamaris a la plancha was good.

we had to wait for 55 minutes to get our food. good ingredients, but no seasoning and no thought behind combining them. the view is nice. if you go here, take the calamari, which is top notch.

Second time in 2 years I've Ben here for lunch, both times in December. It's a fantastic spot to eat outside, great views and nice to people watch. Food is very good,service and prices good. What not to like! Well worth a visit

I love this little sport to people watch and stare out at the mountains. The coffee is lovely. We've eaten here too and the portions are great, really tasty and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit. Try the sweet wine or vino dulce!

We always visit this restaurant whilst in Frigiliana. However it is only at breakfast time as we make sure we visit before getting the bus down to Nerja. The bus stop is opposite. Breakfast is always good, service is usually prompt and the prices are very reasonable. You can also take in a bit of people watching at the same... More

We managed to get a parking space just below here. This was after driving through the incredibly narrow Calle Real road just across from the bar. We decided to sit outside and enjoy a coffee while we recovered from that drive. Very good café con leche and equally good service. View was also excellent. 1. Spain is wonderful

We went for breakfast and the tostadas was abit disappointing but the coffee was good. We went back for tea and could not fault the calamari, Russian salad and anchovies - tasty food at a very reasonable price. Tip half a portion is still huge! The menu looked to have good choice and we will be back I'm sure.
