This place looks nothing from the street. Don't be fooled, it's amazing. The memo looks very limited on first arrival. Six of us had the sux main tapas type dishes on the menu and shared, and the quality was stunning. Highlights: Superb clams, uber fresh fish and some of the best rose wine I've ever had. And all this was... More

Well, where do I start!?!? We visited first time for drinks and dinner along with my parents and it was amazing... we sat on the balcony and then moved indoors for dinner. We were served by the charming Jose, he was so lovely and very funny! Our meal was great and went down well with a fabulous bottle of wine.... More

It was not quite easy to find this place because most of those housings and Bldgs in Frigiliana looked much similar to eyes of foreign traveller. You may walk up the road a little bit to get there. But once you find the place, you can really enjoying the nice lunch with your family and friends. It has terraces toward... More

They offered second piece but same story. They took it of the bill without me having to ask for it. TOPservice. Well done! My wifes pasta was perfect! Need to... More

The sea bass was flaky and wonderful, served with couscous, vegetable and baked potato. The hot bread was just out of the oven. The goat cheese starter was served with a wonderful balsamic reduction and was fantastic. My husband had the Gambos Salad (shrimp) and loved it. They were able to convert a wonderful wok dish to meet the needs... More

The food was very well seasoned which is not common in Spain (it can be bland and not taste very much). I took the clams with some fries on the side. Well cooked clams with taste of garlic and wine. Tasted some of the others food as well. Really good sauce and we'll balanced meals. Be hungry when you get... More

Ate here early November after a lovely meal in July this year. Once again the food and service was first class. Food and wine very good and our waiter provided fantastic service, will definitely be returning.

Lovely views and a lovely little restaurant. We had brilliant service . The seafood was delicious and fresh. The wine was also light and refreshing. The only criticism is because of the food you are swarmed by tiny flies which is very annoying when you haven't finished your delicious meal so maybe some citronella candles would be useful. Other than... More

We dined on the rooftop terrace, overlooking the Old Town and valley below - lovely light warm breeze on a very warm October night. Service was brisk and very friendly and the food was a delicious, simple, yet very tasty. I had Pork fillet in a Marsala type sauce, Herself had Prawns & Scallops, both served with a Baked Potato...

The views are great, and we had a great table after booking it the day before. We found the menu a bit limited and the service, although friendly, was slow and the waiter seemed disinterested, You won't be disappointed, however there are better places in Frigiliana.
