Disappointing end to Ronda stopover

One of the worst meals (if you can call it a meal) that we had in Spain. It was situated off the main square with all the tourist spots, thus seems somewhat safe. The two of us ordered the tapas platter which came with 8 meager items. The ham and cheeses were passable, yet very small portions... read more

We stopped in for their 3 course lunch special and enjoyed the decor, food, and service. The gazpacho soup, macaroni bolognese, pork chops, and goat cheese salad were all very delicious. Would return again.

Although the restaurant has an excellent location, it prays on the tourist who is unfamiliar with the offering of the town. Don't be attracted to the cheap tapas on offer it tastes like frozen food.

We went to eat dinner rather late and decided to give this restaurant a try. There were no other patrons besides us in the restaurant. The waiter seemed rather unfriendly, maybe he was ready to go home. My friend had the rabbit, she thought it was very average and I had a sampler of "tapas". The croquetas didn't have much... More

I am originally from Malaga myself although I have lived in the USA for 6 years now. I was upset, sad and furious after eating in this restaurant. They are a clear example of people who takes advantage of tourists. They gave me bad quality meats, that was overcooked and they gave my husband a pizza that was store bought,... More

The food was ok, but it's expensive. For 2 portions of paella and 2 beers, we paid 30 euros. The location isn't ok. If there are tourists that day in Ronda, you'll see tens or hundreds of them passing near your table and starring at you. The service was excelent, though.

We ate here tonight and were quite happy with the food. We had the menu of the day and the macaroni starter was big and tasty. I had a brochetta of beef (although the menu said it was pork) and it was delicious. It was served with veggies that would have been better had they been warm. My sister had... More
