Really good food if you choose wisely, unbeatable view!

We stopped in Ronda on our way from Granada to Seville and needed a place to get lunch just as a rainstorm came through. We stopped at La Pilastra del Torero because of the rain and the location. With the rain, our view was limited as we sat inside but the atmosphere was still pleasant with... read more

So many places to eat in Ronda. We ate here because it was right next to the new bridge and perched right on the gorge. Had a table looking straight across. Menu has plenty of choice. Had the soup of the day. Excellent. Main course was seafood. Also very good. Nice relaxing eating. Plenty of space.

First: Fantastic wiew! Probably the best wiew from any restaurant in Ronda. Second: The food was terrible. We ate pizza, and the pizza was just like bad frozen pizza. Don't go there.

Situated on one of the main tourist spots in Ronda I had very low expectations - the place is obviously a tourist trap due to its location and view. I was pleasantly surprised. The food is not gourmet but it doesn't have to be, the view is incredible and there are few places in the world where you can have... More

Party of 7 people, 4 adults and 3 children, ordered 4 tapas selection, 1 fillet, 1 salad, 1 bull tail plus drinks. Apart from the last two courses that were judged acceptable, the first five were barely edible. In Spain tapas, that are generally served with bread whereas here is considered as a separate order billed 7.5euros. Fillet was good... More

Two small pieces of meat (with french fries!) came only, so different than the real ones in other spanish cities that has soft and tender meat. prices are expensive, only okay for a drink, but absolutely avoid for food.

this place serves non authantic food that is not spanish although claimed to be spanish. the manager i think is not spanish. they also tried to charge us different prices than the menu, so be careful. this place works as a tourist trap at the very enterence of the city, move inside the town to find authantic andalusian food.
