We always look forward to a visit to El Cerro.......the only problem is too much choice! Beans and ham, morcilla, chicken in garlic, patatas pobre, ribs are a few of our favourites so we make sure we go in a group in order that we have a taste of everything! The service is always efficient and courteous, views spectacular and... More

I could not believe the bad reviews. El Cerro is a rustic Spanish bar set in a beautiful location. The food is Spanish! not fine dining. Best to go with a group so that you can all share lots of tasty plates. The views are fantastic, a great way to spend an afternoon with a cold beer or glass of... More

We popped in for a drink on the way to our villa for a quick drink from the airport. What a way to start our holiday! We were greeted by the most miserable woman I have ever met in my life. It appeared she thought she was doing us a favour by serving us. Yes, there are some lovely views... More

Dont miss out on the fried aubergines as they are delicious. Nice basic setting with perfect food, drinks and service. Just outside Frigiliana, following the signs. You will not be disappointed

We visited twice and both times were very pleased with the food and friendly service. There is a selection of meat and fish dishes. The homemade flan was delicious . We has seen some negative reviews about the attitude of staff but this was not experience .

Had a couple of drinks here in previous years on the way back from a walk to Acebeuchal so tried it on a cooler Sunday. Please don't be put off by the gruff reception which does get warmer if you try to speak Spanish and order food. English is understood and spoken well! The food was far better than anticipated...

As said here by more people. How arrogant can you be. The owners are not friendly people. Go to frigliana if you want som friendly service

I hate leaving poor reviews for restaurants - in fact this is the first poor review I have posted. I always feel the quality of the food served at a restaurant is as much to do with personal taste as anything else and so is its decor. Four of us visited this restaurant which does have spectacular views. We found... More

Ate in this bar/restaurant on a number of occasions recently and was impressed with the freshness, quality and variety of seafood on offer. All freshly cooked and well presented. Certainly worth seeking out if you are in the local area.
