We booked this restaurant by e-mail a month before visiting Ronda based on reviews. It was a terrible disappointment. The view is indeed spectacular but there are many other restaurants and bars in Ronda with similar views. The food was poor.The lamb was dry and overcooked.The sweets were all lacking taste except the rose petal sorbet. However the biggest shock... More

Great food, good service and a incredible view on the old city from the terrace. An extraordinary moment!

Driving to Ronda is a challenge, there must be 1,000 bends on the road up into the mountains but it is worth every twisting kilometre. It is a stunning town but made even more special by this restaurant. We booked a table on the terrace for lunch (recommended) and had the most exquisite meal, easy to see why it is... More

Staying @ Hotel opted for restaurant for lunch one day; nice table on terrace overlooking gorge & bridge so view simply impeccable however as sun moved into mid-afternoon the edge of terrace attraction slipped out of mind in our efforts to find shade - scorching both in terms of temperature & sunburn! Service was fine if a little brusque &... More

This is an expensive restaurant and not one to visit if you want cheap tapas. But if you want gourmet food with a marvellous view, and great service - it cannot be beaten. The food is authentically Spanish, the sucking pig was marvellous, but it also has more European dishes - my fois gras starter with quince jam was absolutely... More

Eating on the terrace restaurant which clings onto the cliff is one of the best experiences in Ronda. Not only are the views amazing but the service is exceptional. We have eaten there several times and really enjoyed ourselves. The wine list is classy and extensive, the advice from the sommelier is always good. Classic Spanish food everything that you... More

To make it short the food and view are breath taking. The view I dont have to explane, its Ronda. But the ceviche and suckling pig were also very very good, as well as the service. One of the best diner experiences in my life and there were many all over the world....

We (5 adults) stopped at the Hotel Montelirio while visiting Ronda, Spain, and happened upon their restaurant. We ate at the outside balcony, which afforded us a terrific view of the Ronda Bridge and the river below. It was outstanding. We walked in without a booking around one p.m. The service was fast, attentive, the food delicious and unique and,... More

Reserve a front table overlooking the gorge for a spectacular 5-star view & sunset! The wine list had many interesting local choices and we chose a Chardonnay that was very good. My duck salad and my wife's stuffed artichoke appetizers were excellent. The wait for the main course was very long and when it came it was disappointing. The suckling... More

After calling at 7.30 to book a table for 830 we were met by a happy welcoming smiling waiter, who on our arrival showed us to our table which was overlooking the stunning gorge, this waiter had an exceptionally friendly manor. Our starters were good as was the wine. We had then ordered beef for two to be sliced at... More
