We went here for dinner after the restaurant had been recommended to us by the owners of Hotel La Casa. It didn't disappoint. Great food, good service and a beautiful setting.

It's important to make a reservation for El Figon, I think, which is tribute to the excellent food and service they provide. It's second to none in the area, we believe, and their pork knuckle and lasagne are not to be missed! :)

We have regularly returned to this restaurant over the years. The food is still fantastic and the gardens are beautiful. Thank you for another lovely evening.

Recently come back from Torrox, and i'm glad to say we managed to eat at El Figon 3 time's whilst we were there. We've been eating there for a few years now, and we've never had a bad meal. The restaurant is set in a beautiful courtyard, with really nice flowers and tree's. And the lighting is just right,not to... More

We had noticed this being highly praised on TA and were excited to try it out. We arrived unreserved and were very happy that we could get a table (we subsequently booked for the friday evening as the visit was good), the service was attentive but not too much so to be annoying. The wait was slightly longer than we... More

Took a couple of walking circuits of Torrox Pueblo to find this courtyard restaurant and luckily they had a table. Advice is to book in advance as you might not be so lucky. We shared our starters and main courses and couldn't fault a thing we had Prawns pil pil and melon and Serrano ham (starters) followed by crepes with... More

Not having been to El Figon for the last few years, I can honestly say the food is still tremendous and excellent value. We visited on two occasions as a party of 8 and 4. The sole, the pork knuckle, and the entrecote steaks were all excellent. However as daft as it sounds, try their own home made lasagne. It... More

Not been to el figon for a number of years but decided to give it a go with the good reviews recently. Wow it was my favourite meal of the week at half of the price. Beautiful surrounding and well established venue as I remembered it. The steak and homemade peppercorn sauce was the best I've ever eaten. My mum... More

We had a great dinner with friends in this super courtyard setting. The salads are exceptional. Everything was lovely and super staff and service. Bill for 5 with 3 bottles of wine was €180.
