Read up on this restaurant before our trip. Did not disappoint. Fabulous food with a view of kings. Great staff. The amount of people here for lunch shows how good the place is. Highly recommended

Bit of a trek up, but worth it when you get there. Stunning views over Frigiliana and out to sea. Good selection of tapas, including veggie and vegan. Courgette fritters are worth a go (more like bajiis). Excellent red wine too :-)

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.
