Don't try to order anything by yourself but listen to the father of Maria. You won't be disappointed! We had a lovely diner and nice atmosphere around the terrace on the square.

This was our 3rd restaurant in Ronda and probably the second best. I have nothing bad to say about the place but I'm not gushing and as taken as many of the previous reviewers. There are several tables and most were taken when we visited. We went for the "set menu" (I'm not sure if there is any other option)? It included a feta cheese salad, tomato bread, grilled asparagus, salt cod with onions and finished with steak and chips. There were a couple of other dishes too. It was all nice, served at a reasonable pace (just took 40 minutes for the first 3 plates to arrive) although we are happy to graze slowly over an evening. The chips are served underneath the steak so whilst they absorb the flavour of the meat, they are then soggy to eat. Like I say, this was ok but not one I would rush back to. Good value - 55 euros for 4 including several drinks.

This was recommended by our hotel. We were a bit sceptical when the owner (Elias) greeted us with a suggestion that we ignore the menu and have a 'bit of everything'. We were even more sceptical when we were seated at a table with a laminated blurb in English, with sponsor's ads, about how much the restaurant means to the owner. BUT ignore those things and just go for it! Really top class food, served in a friendly way in an informal setting. One of the best meals we've had for a while. The restaurant is just outside the southern wall of the old city, 5 minutes walk from the bridge and ravine. We sat in the square opposite and food was ferried out by Elias and his daughter. Everything was top quality produce - the steak was out of this world. An outstanding place to eat!

Thank you Elias and the family for your hospitality! We had a wonderful evening and a great dinner! A bit of everything (un poco de todo): you have outdone your own surprise menu ! Thank you!

Visited on a recommendation from our hotel and when we arrived were somewhat hesitant with our first impression. Small cafe with tables a distance away across the street in the square but how wrong we were, the food was wonderful and the service excellent. We allowed the owner and his daughter to chose both our food and wine and were treated to the best meal we have had in Spain and one that ranks among the very top of any we have had in our travels and at home.

I honestly believe if you visit Ronda you would be a fool not to visit Casa Maria.
