This is a lovely restaurant in the hills above Frigiliana with stunning views all the way down to the sea. We have been coming to this restaurant for years now and have always found the service to be extremely friendly and observant. When we went back this year we enjoyed a lovely lunch on the sunny terrace. Many of the products used in the dishes come straight from the owner's garden. He also produces his own olive oil and other olive oil products. The menu contains many traditional dishes which can be hard to find in other restaurants. We would certainly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return the next time we visit the area.

This run down and lack lustre restaurant has the best views in Frigiliana! The rudest owner and the worst food in Spain!
The fish soup is a travesty, service is appalling and the menu is based around a microwave, food is zapped by the owner who serves you as well, I say serve in loosest term, service is a chore to the patron! You will be furnished with binoculars to admire the view, trust me this will be the highlight of your evening, I would use them to map out your escape and beat a hasty retreat! ... Such a shame the standards are so low, the location is fantastic!

Having been ignored when we arrived, the person who eventually took our order was rude and unhelpful. From our limited experience, the prices were high too. All in all, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Why own a restaurant if you don't want people to enjoy the experience? Beware - when Flamenco is included, there's a pretty hefty additional charge.

Well what a view, Pity about the food and the service!!! The food was the worst meal that we have encountered in Spain, The shellfish soup was a bowl of water with a few prawns floating around, The vegetable soup was much the same with frozen veggies. All we could hear was the pinging of the microwave which makes you a bit nervous!
The view is the best view in Frigiliana, What a shame its wasted by the standard of food being served currently!!!

Awful. Do not touch with a bargepole. We were 'served' (barely ) by one of the rudest women I've had the misfortune to meet.
