“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We have eaten at Los Caracolos over the last several years and we have always had fantastic meals. This years visit was no exception, the service was great, the wine cold and the food first class. My husband had the taster menu which I helped share and we were very impressed with. My son had the chicken and mustard dish which he wasn't very keen on. Apart from that we had a fantastic evening watching a lovely sunset. We will definately return.

“Could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

With some small adjustment would be excellent. cold wine ( not Luke warm) a decent sauce on the kebabs and a complimentary liquire rather than a lollipop with the bill would have made all the difference. Recommend the duck breast, but dont expect any veg with it. Very nice staff.

“Snails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

There were no snails on the menu, which was surprising seeing as caracole is Spanish for snail. However, the name comes from the rooms in the grounds that are shaped like snail shells. Cute.
The food was excellent, with good vegetarian options. Good wine list. Great views to the Mediterranean. Enough sun in January to lunch outside but take a cardigan.
It's a good 30 minute drive up from Nerja through Frigiliana Pueblo and well worth it. Afterwards you can carry along the tarmac road that takes you over the mountain to Torrox Pueblo, another white mountain village worth a visit, for a walk and coffee.
Then down to the coast at Torrox Costa, maybe get photographed at the Faro (lighthouse). A mountain drive and a good meal inside you, a little exercise.... great!

“Unique style and excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

As you can see from the website this restaurant is part of a hotel with a very unusual architectural style. The buildings look almost like Hobbit-houses but whitewashed and set on an Andalusian hillside.

The menu (in Spanish, English, German and French) was impressive, with a wide choice at each course and the restaurant was busy without feeling crowded. There was a good mixture of the expected Spanish food along with some more local or more exotic options.
