In my 70 years on this earth I have never seen lamb leg as white meat. My wife ordered Monkfish and she swears it was cod a fish she is... read 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

Guess like many people we visited Ronda for a day and wanted at the end of the day some small food before going home. The restaurant is in the centre close to the "new" bridge. The table setting was ok and the service friendly. We ordered some starters (croquetes and Ronda mushrooms). It was fairly tasty, the only thing is... More

Made a mistake going here. Thought we'd try a chicken paella which the said they could do as it is not on menus only mixed paella. Then we found out we had a 25 minute wait which would have been fine but During that time we discovered that it was a busy tourist route to the Bull ring with a... More

My wife and I had lamb chops for dinner at this restaurant tonight. The lamb chops themselves were quite good, but the accompanying french fries and vegetables were more of a soggy mess and we did not eat much of those.

We went to this place as it was one of the only places opened during Siesta. Ordered the menu of the day which was quite poor. Our croquettes were cold, the only thing I remember being quite good on the menu was the Jamon and melon dish because it is easy to cut a melon and serve ham with it.... More

Terrible food. The pizza was a frozen one and the spaghetti carbonara was tasteless. Not to be recommended.
