First evening in Ronda, and hoping for a nice meal. Ok, Ronda is a notable tourist trap, but the service here was notably indifferent. I ordered fish soup. There was about one tbsp of fish+seafood. Next to come was an entrecote steak. Tough as an old boot, and only warm. I left half of it. With it came a small... More

Just near to the bull ring and the bridge. As it is hotel restaurant interior and tables were nice and clean. We ordered soup, vegetable, oxtail and salmon. Soup??? vegetable not fresh... More

I guess if you stick to the safer options on the menu it might be better. We had spag bol and Spanish omelette for lunch and it was ok. Expensive, (for Spanish standards) but ok

We had the daymenu. The food was not tasty. Very simple meal. Potatoes not good, fish had a strange smell. Wine was ok but nut cheap. Service was friendly.

This is a moderately expensive eatery that runs tangential to the famous bull-ring in Ronda. Prices reflect the locale, not food quality. We were welcomed with a smile, but not trusted with the Wi-Fi password that was entered into our devices on request. There is a good variety of food and the menu has been translated into German, Italian and... More

We ate here for an early evening meal before returning to our hotel. We chose the 14 euro tourist menu. The starters were ok but my grilled salmon main course was strong tasting and accompanied by tinned potatoes and veg. My husbands whisky tart was a cheap dessert with no whisky. We were served with stale bread that we did... More

Went there for a dinner because most other restaurants were still closed. It was a typical hotel restaurant with average and overpriced food. I had lamb chops which were overcooked and tasteless. And I think the vegetables were from can. The staff understands very little english.

We ere very late for lunch and, having gone to this location to find the highly recommended restaurant we were planning closed, we decided to go no further and park ourselves here for lunch. oh dear, had we had mobile roaming on...
