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.

Typical Spanish food, worth the extra distance from Frigliana. I had grilled hake with homemade chips, my partner had the squid with broad beans and ham. Amazing food and what a view!

The drive to this wonderful little restaurant is a bit hairy but it's well worth the effort. The views over the mountains, village and down to the sea are wonderful and picturesque. The food is very good too. We visit here every time we are in the area and usually order the same things. I suppose we should try other... More
