Now you may only eat out in Spain for a week or two once a year. We have lived in Spain for ten years and travelled all over the country.
We use to live in rural, inland Andalucia. It was smashing but it was very much 'spit and sawdust' when it came to eating out. And consistency was a stranger to many of the restaurants there. And when it came to the extras, it was paper napkins and, if you were lucky, a paper tablecloth.
So imagine our delight when the first time we dined out in Frigiliana it was at this restaurant and the ever charming Guillermo put a tablecoth in front of us that was made of, well, cloth!. Not paper. And napkins that were also 'the real thing,' Frankly, after that shock, he could have fed us almost anything and we'd have still been in 7th heaven.
As it was the food was fantastic. As was the house wine. For once, I will not go into detail about the food on that first visit. Not least because I can't remember what we had! But it was memorable at the time.
The plaza opposite the church is obviously a popular resting point for tourists who have walked the village streets and want to rest their weary and sunburnt limbs.
But it's a great place to watch this little world go by. The church offers a picturesque backdrop and the sport of watching big cars wind their way through the little streets is always entertaining.
I know. For I am often one of those drivers and, believe me, it's better to be a spectator than a participant.
Go to this restaurant for quality food, served well, presented beautifully and, of course, for those extras that make you feel you're dining at a proper restaurant.
