“Sunday Lunch for 10!!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Despite a very busy Sunday service the usual high standards were maintained! Most of the group opted for steak and each one was cooked to perfection.
The service was perfect.....as usual, and prices still very reasonable.
I normally opt for fish when in Las Chinas but am now a converted steak eater!!!

“Excellent fish casserole”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Las Chinas Restaurant is in the heart of the new town at the top of the Calle San Sebastian. There is plenty of seating, all of which is arranged across the road that appears to be shut off for vehicle access in the evening. It doesn’t sound particularly appealing, but it seems to work.

The restaurant is staffed by a waiter and waitress, and led by the friendly Manager, who is just as wonderfully smarmy and deferential as every review suggests. All the staff though were very attentive and allowed us sufficient time between each course.

We were presented with a soft warm roll and a small plate of smooth pate as a pre starter; I wished I hadn’t indulged as I was so full up by the end of the meal! For starters, my wife had a prawn with avocado, whereas I had a prawn cocktail; both were tasty, but average. Our reason for coming here though was to try something typically Spanish, unfortunately Paella was not available as you needed to give two days notice!!.. I really can’t understand why? So we instead opted for their famed fish casserole… and I must say that it was plentiful and delicious.

During the evening we drank two beers and a bottle of white wine; plus we were given a free caramel drink on the house – always a nice touch, although it was a tad too sickly sweet for me. The whole meal cost a very reasonable 52 Euros, which all things considered, was great value for money.

Las Chinas doesn’t have the style, the views or the ‘whole evening’ experience of other restaurants in Frigiliana such as The Garden, El Mirador or La Taberna del Sacristan. However Las Chinas has its place… it has one or two signature dishes, well served at a very reasonable price. It’s definitely worth a visit, if only for the fish casserole and a cheesy wink from the Manager!

“A wonderful place”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have been going to Las Chinas for many years and the welcome is always friendly and the food always excellent. Some people may be put off by sitting beside the main street through Frigiliana but it actually works and the whole place has a buzz. It is not at all fancy but hits every button as an honest Spanish country restaurant. We can recommend everything on the menu, but the fish soup is the thing that everyone comments on. We wholeheartedly recommend here.
