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

Yes this restaurant is expensive...but it is worth it! We had two entrees (prawns croquettes and artichokes), the duck confit and the T-bone for two, coke, three glasses of vine, water, ice tea all for 120 euros. The food was amazing and the setting is just perfect. We didn't have a reservation but we went early so we manage to... More

Dined here last Friday evening. The setting of this restaurant is excellent overlooking the gorge and plain from the old town in Ronda. The front of house was very welcoming and put together a table for 4 in what was a fully booked terrace.Food was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend to my friends to dine here. Proper...

For a special experience don't miss this restaurant. The stunning views alone make it worthwhile. A little pricey but unforgettable.
