Really wonderful lunch in an unreal place,the sun shone and the setting was second to none. The food was exactly what I enjoy, a vegetarian chick pea stew and their superb peppers, and the bread....most welcome as we hiked over the hills to get there. We were with John Keogh who knows them well and we were treated as if... More

I first read about El Acebuchal on the internet and decided it must be visited. We usually visit Nerja once a year either in November or March and for a number of visits the weather was unsettled and possibly risky for hiking in the mountains. This year, we finally managed it and it was well worth the wait. We took... More

A friend took us here, the drive is bumpy but no more so than a lot roads in the area. The hamlet is beautifully sited and lovingly restored. The restaurant is busy and good. Hearty meaty food, but we had a vegetarian with us and they catered for her without problem.

We visited on Oct 17th - 25c - had beers, wine and Tapas . Amazing village restoration work & story by one man, who served us on the day. Bought wild boar chorizo from the shop (which he opened especially for us). Tapas were gorgeous, but our ladies didn't like the venison salami. Dirt road approach adds to charm &... More

We have been hiking from Competa to this historic Village for a number of years and always stop off at this restaurant This year we were late for lunch so had coffees and desserts instead. Such a lovely selection of cakes it was hard to choose, but we settled on the Apple and Cinnamon with a topping of Marmalade cake.... More

My partner used to have a few horses and we met up with Ricky who does trekking in the area he was there with two clients and three horses.Plus a lovely couple who lived near... More

A remote family run restaurant in the mountains with lovely food and friendly service. Local produce and a menu full of game - we had ribs , duck & home made bread. All delicious. Highly recommended - will definitely return despite the bone shaking ride to get there.

Delicious lunch in a very remote area high in the mountains above Frigiliana. Well worth the drive on single track roads. Beautiful village location

Having visited the white village of Frigiliana for the second year in succession we set out, on recommendation, to discover the nearby 'Lost Village' of El Acebuchal. With no particular plan in place we parked on the last of the Tarmac road and walked the 2Km to the village. It was a great way to approach it. Although you can... More

this little gem can be found down a mountain track, part of the rod is not make up and quite rough but don't be put off. The restaurant is inside and out and the terraces look out over the mountain. The food is wonderful very Spanish and very different to what you find in the town. The service is friendly... More
