Good food in a beautiful setting

This small restaurant of a hotel has a wonderful terrace with a great view on the amazing Ronda bridge. Food is very nice (we had as main course the steak, which needs a finishing touch at the table-grill), good wines and all that for quite reasonable prices. Friendly and professional staff.

We went to Albacara with the children (6 and 11) who are well behaved, so I am pretty sure we managed not to disrupt the romantic, quiet dining experience the sofisticated Italian couple at the table next to us were having. Although we sat indoors and therefore didn't enjoy the tremendously breathtaking view of Ronda's Puente Nuevo whilst we were... More

We stumbled upon Albacara whilst walking passed the beautiful bridge/parador in Ronda during a fiesta. The head waiter/sommelier happily accommodated us for lunch - we were very lucky as there was only one table free (booking is highly recommended). The restaurant overlooks the gorge and the views in the afternoon/evening are immense. If you love food and appreciate good craftsmanship... More

Location! One of the best spots in Ronda to enjoy the views. Food is also good, served with a smile. No rush, take time to enjoy some local wines, super. If in Ronda, dont miss this one.

You'd think the setting alone might be reason enough to earn 5 stars, but that's only a fraction of what made our dinner here tonight special. We walked in at 9:30 without a reservation, were greeted graciously & whisked to an indoor table (terrace was full) right in front of an open French door. Still got to take in "the"... More

Having a great meal with a magnificent view is a lifetime experience. I am vegetarian and this restaurant has done an amazing job in designing a traditional meal with chick peas in a vegetarian version. My husband ordered oxtail and he was more than pleased!We had lunch in April and the weather was absolutely spectacular!

This restaurant is popular because of the spectacular view of the gorge (and the Parador). We had lunch at the terrace. The soup was too "water like", but our main course was pretty good. This is a place for a small lunch and the view, not for dinner!

Right on the edge of the gorge in the centre of Ronda, this restaurant is excellent. Service, top notch, food wonderful, view enthralling. Had the best leg of lamb ever, and I say that as someone who has lived in Spain for 13 years, in cities and in countryside. Followed by chocolate truffles in an orange sauce, a very nice... More

This place has the greatest possible view, and the taste of the food was actually quite fine. But the waiters were absent minded and slow, one warm course was served too cold and had to be replaced, and we had to wait an eternity for the bill, and finally had to leave to get it. A shame, because this location... More

The terrace of the resturant sits on the edge of the cliff looking across to the bridge and down to the river below - the location is stunning, get a table on the front of the terrace. The waiter was charming and helpful , the food was delightful - lunch for two ( shared stater and sweet) with a bottle... More
