The views from the terrace and balcony are stunning and the food is unusual and delicious. We had a very special evening. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.

It's a fair uphill walk to the restaurant but well worth the visit. The food was delicious and the views amazing. I particularly enjoyed the feathered pork. Burgers were great and the service was exccellent.

Fantastically prepared food with great service. Not a tourist restaurant - somewhere that foodies will appreciate. Great views.

Thanks for your review, despite your tasty lamb, very nice fritters and nice wine we only manage an ok.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch on the terrace of The Garden on a lovely spring day. The food was delicious and had some unique choices: zucchini and onion fritters, warm dates with cream cheese and pine nut crumbles. The beer was served in clay mugs which kept it cold and refreshing. There was an artesanal market in the city... More

The view is amazing. The food was very good and the terracotta beer mugs are great. They provide nice shade at the table.

We were wandering around the beautiful town Frigiliana in the morning and decided to stop here for coffee & a beer. The views down to the sea are simply stunning and we could have sat for hours, at the beautifully tiles tables, in the warm sun. The service was friendly and efficient. A truly lovely, peaceful spot.

My boyfriend and I spent his 40th birthday at this wonderful restaurant in Frigiliana and I can honestly say it is the best restaurant I have ever visited. The setting is beautiful, the service attentive and our waiter was both charming and knowledgeable. We chose much of our meal according to his recommendations and we were so glad we did.... More

This was my fourth visit to The Garden restaurant and I have never been disappointed, the food is excellent and great value for money especially the tapas.It's well worth the hike up the hill, with great views over Frigiliana, Nerja and the Mediterranean beyond.

We selected this restaurant because it seemed better suited to the one vegetarian in our family than the other restaurants in town. It surpassed all expectations -- really, really delicious dishes! The spicing of the food was beyond outstanding...maybe Moroccan influence? Or Middle Eastern?? I don't know, but I can tell you, it was exquisite. All of us thoroughly enjoyed... More
