Tucked away in Torrox Pueblo this courtyard restaurant has the potential to be a romantic setting for evening dinner.If only the food and the price and the indifferent service supported that potential.We were visiting with others who had been there before and had thought well of it as one their local restaurants.The pork medalions almost seemed to be made of...

This place was recommended to us by Juan, our host at The Casa Collina Del Sol. You have to book in advance. The ambience, the food, the service was top notch: it wasn't pretentious or touristy, and the prices were very good. Really a treasure. Grilled sole and baked cod plus salad was enjoyed in a relaxed and friendly space;... More

I've been to El Figon countless times (more than 50). In all those times I've never been disappointed. Sure some visits have just been "good". But most of them have been superb or excellent. Last night's visit was certainly in the "excellent"-column. We were eight people and had a really good time with great food and wine. The service was... More

After all the fabulous reviews, we were quite excited to visit El Figon- not sure what the hype was about. Yes, it was very pretty inside and we were shown to our table straight away. The disappointing bit was the food- two of us had the seafood soup, one mussel and one prawn and tasted more of nutmeg than saffron... More

A private patio, turned into the most lovely restaurant. Open April through to mid/end October, you will dine in a lovely garden, with good food and wine, and at a reasonable price. Staff are excellent too. You will need to book as places are limited, take your camera, and enjoy a special evening.

Food good and the best sangria - staff very attentive. Slight issue over bill which did spoil the evening a little but still well worth a visit. A must for a romantic evening.
