Ok, the wrapped bread seems pretty lousy. And some tables look onto the street. And we weren't warned about the extra charges. But the service was kind and attentive. And the entrees were actually superb and generous. Deserts ended the meal quite well. Some of these reviews seem pretty unbelievable, based on our experience.

We had planned a nice meal after the visit in Ronda. It was my wife's birthday and we had looked forward to good Spanish food. it was a terrible experience. We were greeted by a cranky employee and should of course have left the place immediately. We did unfortunately not this. We ordered lamb, giant shrimp and chicken. When the... More

We ordered two bowls of soup, two waters, and two coffees. The total charge was over 28 euros because of the addition of extra charges. A bad surpise. Avoid this tourist trap.

Went for dinner on 10th November 2015. Was underwhelmed. I had the salmon and my wife had the John Dory. It was just about edible.

Unfortunately even though we were aware that VAT is not included, it was not really nice suprise that we had to pay for buns in plastic bags they brought as a... More

Surprised to see recent bad reviews. The restaurant looked inviting and cosy on a cool damp evening. Well dressed tables and a nice ambience. We each chose from two separate set menus with multiple choices for each of the three courses; one at 11 euros the other at 14.50 euros. At these prices we had low expectations. Even though we...

We regret not reading Tripadvisor before we ate here! Truly awful. Chips with everything. Ok, the chips were ok but the food was rubbish. Never, ever eat here. There is nothing positive to say about this establishment (except for the chips). Walk past this place very quickly.

The meal was okayish but the menu lists prices without VAT with is somewhat illegal in UE. Besides that they brought 2 buns in plastic packaging which we didn't ordered and didn't used and then included 3 EUR into the bill.
