Great service and food with the best view in town. Absolutely recommend the roasted lamb shank, and the foie for starter was excellent. Can't beat this for a romantic meal in a lovely setting.

The view from this restaurant is unparalleled. However, that is where the good news stopped. When we arrived for our reservation, it was very sunny so we asked for the table in the shade. We were told that table was reserved already. That particular table? Really? And then they filled that table an HOUR later. Service got worse from there:... More

The view from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking. Puente Nuevo lies to the right and you can watch the dramatic sunset behind the sierra to the left. Just gorgeous. The food itself is fine. The fish was nice but the side dishes were cold and tasteless. Pricy for what you get. We waited an hour for our food but you... More

The views from the balcony are amazing and the dishes were delightful. Classical Mediterranean food with an elegant twist and beautifully arranged. Our family of four truly enjoyed Albacara and warmly recommend it. It's a bit more expensive than your usual Spanish restaurant but it is worth it.

When coming to Ronda, you will struggle to have dinner with a better view and with service from better staff. If you come in July, come to eat around 9pm and experience a beautiful sunset in beautiful surroundings. A must visit!

I might have reviewed this one on our last visit to Ronda. The view from this shoulder rubbing friendly outside terrace is a massive draw. But that shouldn't distract from the decent European fayre on offer. Outstanding professional staff make the dining experience a real pleasure. Maybe not the very best but as an overall experience you have to consider... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and wine, overlooking the beautiful bridge and canyons. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was amazing. I recommend the Iberian pork and stuffed salmon and the grilled vegetables for an appetizer.

We were struggling to find a table with no booking on a busy Saturday night and were running out of our small list of preferences. We had already tried Albacara around 9pm but they were full although the owner had tried hard to fit us in. After being unsuccessful at two other choices in the old town, we went back... More

We visited here on the third night of our stay in Ronda, and we left sorely disappointed. Firstly, the setting is spectacular but is somewhat spoilt by the feeling of being squeezed onto the terrace. There was just about adequate room but it was a big relief when the table next to us left. The arrival of the bread and... More
