We found this restaurant by chance last year and came back twice this year, whilst on holiday, as the food and the views were so good. It has a fairly large terrace with views of the white houses on the hills above Nerja, Spain. This scene is one the best in the world. My favourite starter I had there was melon with local ham and my favourite main course was lamb with a honey and spearmint dressing. The wild boar in a creamy pepper sauce was also a favourite amongst us. The food comes beautifully presented and it is the other attention to detail which makes this restaurant stand out; such as the hot rolls they bring you to dip in olive oil. The waiters were friendly and made both our meals this time really relaxing and enjoyable and it was certainly our favourite restaurant of the holiday.

The service from both waiters was extremely efficient and friendly. The starters, main courses and desserts were all beautifully presented and most enjoyable. All complemented by a stunning view and sunset. Best restaurant of the week!

A really nice restaurant with great view. The first table we got was in the back of the restaurant, but when some of the guest moved we were alowed to move to the better table. Great food, great atmosphere, and great nature surounding frigilliana. Recomend to eat dinner here at nighttime and watch the sunset. We were four people, amd with a three course meal and wine it became around 100euros.

We visited this restaurant hoping for a special night Out we were very disappointed. Our water was far more interested in chatting with his friends than serving us which was very offputting as the service was very poor. The food On the other hand was fine nothing special but perfectly ok. The price however I feel was very very expensive, Two salads 2 starters 2 cups of coffee almost €50 This is a nice restaurant with a nice view but there are far far better restaurants in the area. With a much more friendly price and much more friendly service.
