one of the best restaurants in Ronda

We got here for lunch based on the recommendation of the owner of our hotel and my German guide book. It was a sunny day so we opt for sitting outside. The waiter, who spoke just a bit English, was very friendly and attentive. The menu was in English. We ordered the homemade pate, big gambas and... read more

If you know how I like good food you will be surprised that I think that this small restaurant next to the walls of Ronda is for me one of the best places I have ever eaten. I came here last week for the 5th time and was again amazed by the variety and quality of the food. Start with... More

After spending 5 weeks on the Costa del Sol, Almocabar was my favorite restaurant of them all, including a Michelin restaurant. This is a restaurant to not miss, although small and entirely in Spanish. The food is elevated, creative and just amazing. The crazy curvy drive to Ronda is worth it just for eating here (which we did twice in... More

Whenever we have visitors, we take them to our favourite restaurant, Almocabar. Also this time our friends loved it as much as we and every time it is worth the rather long drive from and to Marbella. The beauty of this small restaurant is only topped by its food. We had goat this time which was absolutely delicious and we... More

We stopped for a lunchtime drink when the bar was very busy with people having tapas. It looked good so we booked for dinner. Unfortunately in the evening the small dining room was chilly and lacked atmosphere. The food was nice enough but the service somewhat perfunctory. In a place with so much character it could have been great but... More

Enjoyed our evening at this restaurant near part of the old city walls. We had the tuna salad and steak which we both enjoyed.

On our first day in Ronda we happened on Almocabar - in El Barrio de San Francisco - (just outside the gates of the old city), and sat at the bar for tapas....this being our first day of a monthlong stay, we had no comparisons, but our 'snack' of smoked salmon on dark bread, house made pate and cheese croquettes...

Almocabar's cuisine is quality contemporary Spanish. The food is authentic, fresh, creative, cooked to perfection and artistically presented. The decor and ambience is warm, colourful and uniquely reflects its Spanish heritage, situated as it is so close to the 13th Century Almocabar Gate. The quality of the service is excellent; warm, hospitable and very accommodating. We had lunch on the... More

This tiny restaurant and bar is a little gem and not to be missed. it is almost impossible to get a reservation in the restaurant as they only have 6 tables and quite honestly - I would not even try - as eating in the bar is so much fun. You can choose from the full menu in the bar... More

Nice restaurant with great food. My fish was cooked to perfection and very tasty. My partner loved the lamb dish. Staff was very nice. The restaurant also has a separate bar and a wine tasting room upstairs.
