Great small place with seating on the main level and upstairs

Friendly place. Had a nice salad and the best baby squid ever. Had a nice chat with a neighboring table who told us about that dish. Don't know about other dishes but we liked what we had.

This restaurant is great. The menu had some interesting and delicious tapas options. We had the fried eggplant (translated as aubergines in the menu), the mushrooms with garlic and the Iberian special (pan seared pork cutlet with fries). The best thing were the mushrooms. We almost ordered a second order! The prices were great and the lady who served us... More

This little bar/restaurant was a great find in the center of Ronda. On the outside it looks small and dark but inside there is a clear room and charming decor. The grilled mushrooms with garlic was terrific as was the just-out-of-the-oven paella. The service was gentle and polite. Highly recommended.

Up in the historic quarter of Ronda but just off the tourist track. It didn't look very special from outside but once inside the bar was full of atmosphere. We initially stopped for a soft drink after a climb up hill but ended up stopping for lunch. The tapas and raciones were really tasty and there was a good choice.... More

We took the recommendation on what was good on the menu that day and were not disappointed: mushrooms, cheese, the inevitable boquerones- washed down with a good local red (Chinchilla). A complimentary liqueur before our departure - what's not to like?

Our hotel recommended 6 tapas places in Ronda, and luckily the first two we tried were either unappealing to us or full. This place is a LITTLE out of the main tourist area, but what a place!!!! Packed with locals. Inexpensive. Super tasty. Great waitress. The house speciality, a rolled stuffed pork at only 1.80 Euros, was superb. We ordered... More

Six of us enjoyed this place on a quiet street. Shared tapas were very good, especially the calamari and the grilled mushrooms with garlic. Great service--we misread the check and thought it said 57 euros and gave the server 60. She pointed out it was only 47 and handed back 10. No tourist rip-off here!

We were mostly disappointed by the food. If you like to eat out and enjoy food, like we do, just don't try this place. The food we had was either tasteless (flamenquín and hamburguesa) or too salty (patatas alioli). The garlicky champiñones, recommended by the waitress, were just plain. The recurring sides of bread, iceberg lettuce and fries weren't good... More

Good place to have affordable lunch in centre of the town. Traditional atmosphere with an open atrium and bullfighting posters on walls. Popular with visitors to Ronda.

Stayed in Ronda two days and ate lunch here one of them. Very tasty, generous portions of authentic Spanish food. Not fancy but a very pleasant setting. Friendly waitress who spoke very little English but helped us choose from menu. Very good value in quite an expensive town - which Ronda is as it gets lots of day trippers from... More
