I hadn't eaten at the Venta Cueva del Gato for some months. But since I was in the area, I decided to visit again. The restaurant is still the same. High quality food and very low prices. If you are looking for linen table cloths and a wine steward than stay on the Costa del Sol. But if you want... More

We had just left the Pileta Caves and were looking for a place to try, initially drove by and decided after a short drive past that we should turn back. It didn't hurt that the travel booklet (Rough Guide) had made a strong recommendation to try one of their house specialties. Bugs Bunny block you ears - the stewed rabbit.... More

The food here is simple, authentic, fresh, delicious and inexpensive. Simple decor but quality dishes. The owner and chef Miguel is constantly searching for different and fresh ingredients and varies his menu to the season. I've had wild boar, quail, partridge, salmon, sea bass , bream, as well as the best paella ever. An impressive wine list. Real home cooking.

Have visited this hidden gem on many occasions and as on previous visits the food and service was superb. My husband has the pigs cheek stew which he said was the nicest thing he has ever eaten!! Will definitely be returning.

This "venta" is not to be confused with the nearby Hotel Cueva del Gato which may or not be open. A "venta" is a country inn, in this case a rural restaurant. I have eaten here a couple of times: we live nearby. On both occasions the venta was heavig with locals. The venta is clearly doing something right. There... More

This gem of a restaurant is located in the countryside, about 15 minutes from Ronda. What a find this place is. The owner Francisco told me his place is family owned and that most of the food is locally sourced. It was certainly fresh and really great value for money. We had the "arroz con conejo" (rice with rabbit) which... More
