The Balcon is located just on the edge of Frigiliana, as you arrive from Nerja. We sat down to dinner on the terrace overlooking the bay of Nerja, just as the sun was setting, which was spectacular! And the food and service only added to the pleasure.

Whilst the menu was quite short, the range of dishes on offer promised something for every taste and so it proved. The prawn and mussel starters were excellent (a lovely piqante sauce with the mussels) and our sons gave top marks to the pork and beef burger, and the ribs. The goats cheese and tomato sauce with penne was excellent and a pretty huge portion. Service was discrete but always available when needed.

At about €100 for six of us, with a few starters and desserts along with main courses, the price was pretty good for the quality of food and magnificent view. Definitely one for the Frigiliana short-list.

We took a trip to Frigliana, and after a walk around saw this restaurant as the stand-out choice for drinks and lunch.
We ate on the terrace overlooking the fantastic scenery of sea and mountains, our server comfortably allowing us to enjoy our surroundings with the rare skill of neither rushing us to order or being absent and making us look for him.
The menu was in Spanish and English, varied enough for interest with light bites of salami (excellent), chorizo, Serrano ham and olives, tapas (again excellent), larger meals and wines.
Service was timely, accurate and friendly, my amateur tourist Spanish was encouraged with his excellent English!
It's our own fault that we found this restaurant so late in our holiday, something I regret because we will definitely come back.

We love this restaurant and visit every time we stay in Frigiliana (usually twice a year). Totally disagree with the reviewer who says the food is 'miserable and amateurishly prepared'. Ok, they have changed their menu fairly recently to include a 'menu of the day' but in today's economic climate, this was a good move ...
Peter and Alessandro are great hosts and yes, the views are stunning! We had Sunday lunch there 14th April and happily sang along with Jason!
See you again soon!
