This is an excellent stop for lunch after a hike or MTB tour in the mountains. Try the hake with mussels, clams and shrimps in cava.

Went along with some relatives who were staying close by. We started off by ordering a bottle of "House Red". This arrived and then we proceeded to order our meals. My wife went for the fish and immediately the woman serving us told her she needed "white wine" with the fish. My wife explained (in broken Spanish) that she preferred... More

We (there were 7 of us) had dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday and had a lovely evening - great views, excellent food, great service and really good value for money. My only disappointment was that we had to leave before the following Wednesday when there was to be Flamenco dancing. We had a mixture of starter including Manchego cheese,... More

This was walking distance from our villa. Our first meal we had, 3 of us had a fish dish, although tasty it was more like a soup, it was a good home cooked meal just not to our taste, the fourth member had a burger which he loved. We then booked for the flamenco night, this is on a Wednesday.... More

We visited with a friend of my wife's for the Wednesday night flamenco show. We were welcomed by staff and had drinks as soon as we'd sat down. The dish I ordered wasn't available, however, I was very quickly offered a similar alternative which was delicious! (Chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce with rice) We all agreed the food was... More

Have had 4 meals in this charming restaurant in the last 14 days and none of them have disappointed. From the warm welcome of the proprietors, the quality of the fresh home cooked good to the views to Frigiliana and Nerja beyond all was top rate. If I ever return to this location I will make sure that this is... More

You couldn't ask for a better view to look at whilst enjoying some traditional Spanish home cooking. The service was attentive and even provided binoculars to get a closer look at the surroundings. Would not hesitate to go back.

Discovered quite by accident on the road from Frigiliana to Competa this unpretentious restaurant offers a large outdoor terrace with views down to the Med. Operated by the brilliant Maria and her partner. Well worth the trip back from the coast for the food (tuna salad was "best ever" (see photo). Add the aspects and its a "hard-to-beat" combination,
