Good food, small portions

This restaurant is located away from the hustle and bustle of La Ciudad and El Mercadillo in the relatively quiet Barrio de San Francisco. They have lots of tables on a pleasant but noisy square with views of the bulky portal of Puerta Almocabar. Not much English is spoken but we got by on our... read more

Visited some years back and remembered it as a fantastic restaurant. Wanted to go there again when we visited Ronda this summer and passed by at lunch time to book for dinner the following evening. Grabbed some tapas at the bar after making the reservation - really good and cheap. Good wine by the glass. The dinner the following day... More

Very relaxed vibe here, not one to rush. Lovely warm evening in the square and we enjoyed grilled octopus, beautifully seasoned veal (cooked on the table on a hot stone), lamb chops and entrecôte steak, all washed down with some fine local wine. Great evening.

Was trying to choose a Restaurant for a special meal (there are many in Ronda) and we were recommended the Almocabar by our Hotel who booked the table for us. We were impressed by the TA reviews and were looking forward to the experience. The setting under the trees in the Plaza overlooking Puerta de Almocabar was so pretty and... More

If you're bored of standard tapas and would like to eat something more exciting and delicious, head to this lovely restaurant. We enjoyed a really delicious lunch on the square under the trees. Figs and goats cheese with anchovies was a genuinely incredible starter. Salted veal which we cooked at our table on a hot plate was succulent too. The... More

We chose this restaurant due to it's proximity to our hotel and a solid ranking from TA. We were seated promptly at one of the outside tables, and the service was good to begin with. Then things went bad. I ordered a bottle of wine, and they brought it out and presented it to me, then removed the cork. As... More

After reading the reviews we decided to try it. The sangria was great, bread was warm and was offered with Olive Oil with volcanic salt, which was really interesting. We were seated on a table outside, it was very hot but the tree shades made it all right. Food was not that outstanding though. Good, but not something that would... More

We walked down to the restaurant in the blazing heat and were offered a table under the trees with a lovely breeze which was perfect. Even though we were dining alfresco the table had a crisp white tablecloth with sparkling glasses! We drank white sangria which had lots of fruit in it and was lovely and chilled! We were served...

A recommendation from our host, we fell in love with the duck tapas served in the bar area. We didn't make it to the restaurant but went for tapas here twice during a four day stay in Ronda. Really friendly staff that don't speak English but try very hard to understand you - they serve such amazing bites! Great Ronda... More

We were recommended to this restaurant so we sought it out on our day trip to Ronda. It was 42 degrees on the day of our visit so even though it was warm the shade of the trees in the square provided a nice respite. Even better was the huge sangria which was deliciously cold and full of fruit. Our... More
