Had dinner here twice during short stay in Capileria. On both occasions, we had excellent service and the food was superb. The garlic prawns in olive oil were the sweetest most succulent ever tasted... We had them twice. We also had the leg of lamb and calamari, gazpacho and local almond, ham & egg soup... All fantastic and to be... More

Caplieira is one of the most scenic villages in the Alpujarras and is located in the Poqueira Gorge of the Sierra Nevada at an altitude of around 5,000 feet. We have visited the area for the last 12 years and have found "Casa Paco" to be one of the best restaurants in the village and it certainly has a prize... More

My wife and I found ourselves sat amongst Americans and Swedish families on the beautiful lawns of this restaurant. Apple trees bordered the covered outdoor dining area and the meal that came with this setting did not disappoint. I decided on the beef steak and Potatoes fritas (Chips) and April had the chicken stuffed with prawns and mushrooms with Potatoes... More

A meal with the wife and friends. A very enjoyable occasion sitting on a very green lawn - August in Andalucia! - with views down the gorge to Lujar mountain. Excellent tapas. I shared the story of the Basques fishing off Newfoundland long before Columbus 'discovered' 'America', salting the cod and bringing it back to Spain as baccalau. Great food,... More

No other guests outdoors, stunning view, calm evening in end of may. Gentle service from oneman-staff. Gambas for starter, very good considering the altitude and not by the seashore down below. Rabitt made in a special oven was delicious, best ever! Local red wine from Granada District Perfect match. Good service, quality of Food also on day 2.

After a day in the crowds of Granada it was great to get out into the Alpujarra mountains, and what a great find Paco Lopez was. There's no shortage of restaurants in Bubion and Capileria, and this is on the upper edge of the village of Capileria, so it enjoys superb views, from your lunch table. With just one waiter... More

Visited here over a number of years. We travel from the coast and visit this restaurant, hopefully to sit in the garden with sun on face. Always take a walk in the mountains first. Today had alpujarras soup followed by pork steak and local veg. Just a wonderful.place.

We had a set menu in the garden - the food was tasty if quite standard fare - but the views are hard to beat.

Restaurente Paco Lopez is set in the beautiful town of Capileira in the mountains of La Alpujarra, Andaucia. The views are stunning! Sitting outside for lunch was an amazing experience, the scenery has to be seen to be believed! We have also eaten supper here; for this we sat inside and thoroughly enjoyed the setting and ambience. The staff are... More

I should have guessed there was sthg fishy when, on your way to find a restaurant, 3 out of 4 were proposing calamares fritos as a second dish. Paco Lopez was proposing it as well, and, being on the top of the village, we decided to give it a try, on account of its very very nice garden/terrace. The calamares... More
