After our stroll we was searching for a nice place to eat and we decided to go to a restaurant up stairs the botanical garden. It has a terrace with lemon trees and the view is fantastic: the new town, the botanical garden, the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea
Tras nuestro paseo buscamos un restaurante que estuviera bien para comer y decidimos ir a uno que está subiendo por las escaleras del jardín botánico. Tiene una terraza con limoneros y la vista es fantástica: la ciudad nueva, el jardín botánico, las montañas y el mar Mediterraneo.
Favorite Dish: There are a lot of dishes to choose, including the local specialities, as "migas" (fried breadcrubs) with eggs and meat. We chose some different kind of meat and it was so good. In addition the plateful was big enough to ask just for one of them!
Hay una gran variedad de platos entre los que elegir, incluyendo las especialidades locales como las "migas" con huevos y carne. Nosotros elegimos algunas clases diferentes de carnes que estuvieron muy bien. Además las porciones eran suficientemente grandes como para pedir tan sólo un plato.
This was almost like you were in someone's
out door patio, we walked through this hallway with a wooden beam roof and a beautiful wooden door then we get to a little patio in between white houses and there is this great little outdoor restaurant I'll show in my next picture what the wall we looked at when we had our lunch/dinner looked like it was just beautiful small a bit cramped but that made it cozy and wonderful.
Favorite Dish: I will put up a picture of the menu ,It has the prizes on the menu .
I recommend this restaurant it was very nice and prized reasonable.
Carne on Adobo or Marinated Pork Cubes .
Good ,a plate full off Pork Meat cut up with home made potatoes, onions and variety of vegetables.
That was my plate , I think the others had Chicken and Entrecote for Stace
I was tooo hungry and too busy to really notice what they had hehe.
Well I might as well show you the menu ,I took a picture of the menu and everytthing is under 6 euros which is pretty reasonable.I am not sure about the entrecote does it say
5 .50 E or 8.50 E ,I can't tell even with my glasses on.
As we were getting hungry, Carmen, Stace, Hans & I along with Sandra, Isa and Rosa, started looking for a place to eat. It was getting close to 3:00 p.m. when most restaurants close for the afternoon. We luckily got into LA BODEGUILLA" just in time before they closed.
We ordered tradional Spanish dishes. Actually I don't even remember the names of the dishes as they were in Spanish. Hans and I had a dish with pieces of pork and patatas and a side of salad. We all had flan for dessert.
We first found this restaurant by accident. Many were closed for annual holidays or day off or already full. But as we passed by a small opening, or passage way between two houses, with heard the chinks of cutlery and plates. We thought it might lead to a private back-yard but went to make sure. It did look like someone’s pretty little terrace but the people seated at the tables we clearly customers.
We sat down at the only remaining table and a smiling middle aged woman came to serve us.. I wondered afterwards if she might have been a relative of Rosario who still runs the restaurant with the help of her sons.
There was no written menu then and, nearly 20 years ago, our Spanish was a bit hit and miss. Our waitress spoke no English but we thinks she said her name was Agnes so for years we always referred to the restaurant as Agnes’ place. We had difficulty understanding her attempt to explain the menu so she pulled up a chair and drew pictures, mimed the action of stirring and mixing from to all of which we said Yes Please - in our best Spanish of course.
We went back many times after that for real traditional Spanish homecooking . I haven’t seen Agnes for a while and the style and tone is somewhat smarter these days but for a good meal -we always went at lunchtime - it can’t be beaten.
For the family a look at the website tells what a success the family have made of this and their other nearby estblishment - abajo.
Favorite Dish: We loved the guisado -casserole/stew like dishes full of flavour and served with fresh vegetable. Equally good were the grilled fish and meats and salads . Best of all we enjoyed the friendly, family atmosphere of a meal there.
Ok, I may not have gone to the tourist ones overlooking wonderful views... but this place it is a classic for the people that live there.
The first time I went here was in the 93 and I was introduce by my housemate that was from Frigiliana, (regards Fernando!)
It is great food here, seriously ... go inside the church.... and get there... in the little inside square...
Originally was a women cooking for tourist on her kitchen, and if you go to this bodeguilla, you will see that they still cook in their kitchen, but now all family helps in the service, and you have to go inside the house to pay the bill...
You find there all kind of tourists mixed with all the locals... from all ages...
See the menu here, prices are great... My recommendation: el combinado ....
Some typical dishes are:
AJOBLANCO, a garlic cold soup, GAZPACHO a vegetable cold soup and also another warm soup of vegetables that I am not sure of the name.
Migas, papas a lo pobre
And more …..
This is another long established Frigiliana restaurant that consistently serves good food with a good choice on the menu.
It continues to attract returning customers year after year and though I think it has moved a bit upmarket, still offers very good value - and an incomparable location.
