I had a taste of Ronda platter. It was a nice selection of hams and chorizo. I especially liked the grilled green peppers. Delicious!!

The food and service at this restaurant was atrocious. We ordered from the menu of the day and starting with our soup, it is possibly the worst food I have ever had. My husband's fish soup was a watery bland mess with stale fishy seafood - ugh! We both ordered fish as our main - mine was John Dory and... More

It is the worst restaurant I had ever been. The food is not tasty. I order the goat cheese salad and I got a pice of cheese not cooked with leaves of salad and a vinegar souse. And I wait for it 45 min. The staff is not welcomed. Stay away from that place.

Unfortunately I hadn't read the reviews of this restaurant & neither had lots of other people as it was very busy & as the restaurant we had chosen was closed we thought we would try the dish of the day. The waiter placed the bread roll on the plate with tongs even though it was wrapped in cellophane. Unfortunately this... More

When the bread came out in a plastic wrapper we should have got up and left. The pasta tasted like Spaghetti O's and the pizza was a bad frozen thing. Staff was friendly and the restaurant itself was nice but the food was one of our worst.

We did not stay in the related hotel - we only had dinner in teh restaurant. The location is very central, next to the bull fighting area. The fish (dorada) I had was not very fresh and the sauce had a terrible taste. So most of the dish went back (as the one of our neibor table).. Salad (de la... More

Our first night in Ronda also our wedding anniversary and we were looking for a small, not to busy restaurant to have a nice meal. It looked okay from outside, quite cosy and not busy. I had the Rabbit Ronda style and I must admit it tasted okay but not good and not a lot of meat in the portion.... More

Can't deny the negative reviews are correct.After almost falling in the door (a steep step) we thought it looked really nice, should have noticed we were the only people. I ordered from the set menu the fresh cream of vegetable soup was tinned tomato with a funny green tinge underneath, but it tasted ok.The roast chicken was a huge lump... More

Kids were hungry, and we'd just arrived in Ronda, so chose this place quickly. Mistake....the staff are all nice and there's a good outside atmosphere, but the food is 'school dinners' quality. My wife's salmon was apparently good, but everything else was pretty awful. Bill of €108 for five of us, one course, was just not worth it. Avoid like... More

Wanted to try an authentic Spanish paella and am not a food snob (honest!) - this was the most atrocious food I have ever seen! I was served raw clams, pathetic langoustines and pieces of chicken with the spine bone intact!!! To add injury to insult the gazpacho was overwheled with onion and god knows what they did to the...
