We usually don't eat in hotel restaurants as they can be quite boring; but Montelirio is a small and beautiful hotel, we were tired and juts wanted to have something for lunch. So we made reservation for the terrace of Albacara - overlooking the gorge. It was a wonderful surprise; there were many "Oh-My-God" moments. Hope to be back sometime.

If you're looking for a fine sit-down restaurant with spectacular views, as compared to a stand-up tapas bar, this is a good choice. Unlike the other reviewers, we found the food to be more than acceptable, although for the price you might want to expect more. Our fish was fine, but the appetizers disappointed. But, again, the views are spectacular. And the restaurant is housed in the stables of a palacio. Side streets are quiet and away from the hordes of tourists on the main road crossing the gorge.

Could not believe this restaurant was voted Ronda's number one. The setting by the gorge is spectacular but the quality of food and its presentation was basic and unprofessional. We ordered the goat cheese starter. It arrived as a pile of sliced veg covered in melted cheese which was NOT GOATS. My complaint was met with a simplistic indifference. The main course was duck...a magret hacked into three chunks, grilled and placed on a handful of oven chips with a spoon of shredded cabbage and carrot at the side. There were no garnishes or sauces and no thought for presentation. It was no better then pub grub. We left without taking dessert. What we ate cost nearly 90€. Never again.

This restaurant offers one of the best views in Ronda. We were able to have a very leisurely and unhurried lunch on New Year's Day. The menu was limited because of the holiday but what was offered was very good with meticulous presentation. We strongly recommend this restaurant.
