Not as bad as expected! Friendly staff and cosy location.

We arrived late to Ronda and we walked tired into this restaurant with the worse expectations of a tourist trap! But it wasn't that bad. The gazpacho for 5,75€ was realy nice and all the food was okay and eatable. I also had Melon con jamon Iberico for 10€. It tasted good but even though I'm... read more

I will preface this by saying the staff were friendly (even replacing a food item with something else when I didn't appear to be enjoying it), but this was the only positive. The food was so bad I would give it no stars if I could. We chose options from the 3 course 'special menu' at a price of 14.50... More

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. The ‘popcorn’ shrimp... 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
