There is a lot of history relating to the small hamlet which is about 20mins drive from Frigliana. The approaching road is a little tricky in places so a normal hire car will be to take it slow. We actually parked at the sign for 1.4km to it and walked the rest of the way which was a lovely way... More

Stopped here for coffee one morning having walked the last 1.7km from the end of the tarmac road rather than driving it. As we sat down a board emerged advertising home made cakes. Do not miss them. I had carrott and chocolate cake and my husband had pear cake both served with whipped cream and a creme anglais. We needed... More

The owners and the family of this restaurant provided such a warm welcome on what was a wet and cold day!! We went for lunch and the food and the service was just lovely. Nothing was too much trouble, the menu was explained. The food was superb, chicken in yogurt was with a subtle hint of spices but very tasty,... More

Friends took us here for lunch and what a discovery! The location is breathtaking, the food delicious and the service fantastic.....and the history of the place with its recent restoration is fascinating. Don't let the bumpy ride put you off! Only open lunchtimes - every day of the week.

Worth every inch of the walk from Frigiliania. We did not expect such quality, it was divine, something that you expect from a high end restaurant. We had the tomato salad with orange and cilantro, it was delicious and enough for the two of us along with their beautiful homemade bread. There were 4 other couples there at the same... More

I'm a regular visitor to this restaurant and I love to share it with other travelers. The last time I was there I noticed a new bar had opened at the entrance to the village and I thought it worthwhile to mention to visitors not to get mixed up between the two restaurants. Our walking group visited on the day... More

Nestling at the bottom of a valley in the Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama natural park is the old lost village of El Acebuchal. The village which was commandeered by Franco in 1948 was left to fall into disrepair until 50 years later in 1998, Antonio García Sánchez, son of one of the original villagers, returned with his wife, Virtudes...

This restuarant and area is hidden in the hills above frighilliana. It not only has spectacular views on the drive into it but the restuarant here has a great menu all served up in a great location. Reasonably priced and great tasting, We will be back.
