You know when based on a recommendation you have booked a restaurant and you arrive there and the adjoining restaurants are heaving and yours is deserted.. well it all turned out well in the end. We enjoyed an excellent goat cheese salad,” tempura “ prawns...( actually not tempura but very good anyway) and then some perfectly cooked tuna with puréed potato etc. And the restaurant filled up later with Spaniards enjoying their later mealtime. Good, prompt service. Great views down the valley as wellMore

This restaurant had been recommended by a friend. It's not badly located near the car park with a decent view of the valley leading down to Nerja. I don't consider this the best part of Frigiliana. There are some much better restaurants in the narrow...streets of the village but this one is much more accessible. I have to say that I was disappointed with the food. I chose octopus, which I love. However it was completely spoiled by being smothered in salt which was was all that I could taste. I should have sent it back but like the stupid Englishman I am I scraped as much of the salt off as I could and ploughed on. The waiter was trying to be pleasant enough but one got the feeling that it was all a facade. I mentioned the salty octopus after I had eaten it, which I accept was too late and stupid of me. All I got was a grunt and a look and a turn of heels. I'm sure that he was thinking another stupid Guiri! (Colloquial Spanish slur for foreign tourists). I am quite local to Frigiliana and go there a lot but I won't be eating in this restaurant again.More

Lovely Thai influenced food. For my wife’s birthday lunch, I had Thai noodles, my wife Thai salad with chicken and my daughter mustard duck bao. Great, friendly service. Wonderful view down to the coast

Very high quality and tasty food... The tuna tartar was amazing! The menu is asian/med fusion. Frigliana is a beautiful white town in the hills, I definitely recommend a visit if staying near by... Its worth it!

Possibly the best food I have ever eaten. We were completely blown away by this restaurant, the quality and taste of the food. Each dish we ordered was just exceptional, great service and fantastic view/setting when sitting outside. The bill was very reasonable, considering the...extremely high quality of the food. Would definitely return here again!More

The menu has an interesting range of dishes, from tapas to oriental. I had the noodles with prawns and peanuts and it was excellent. My friend had the steak an also thought it was really good. The service could not be faulted, it was friendly...and efficient but never overdone. Highly recommended and certainly justifies its place amongst the many great restaurants in Frigiliana.More
