We went with the number 1 pick on Trip Advisor and went for a late afternoon drink to explore. Great atmosphere and convincing menu so we made a res for dinner. Food was good but not spectacular, had a 2001 Rioja that was sensational. Careful of the veal. It was priced X Euro/100 gram and turned out to be the most expensive plain old grilled veal chop I have ever experienced, and we eat in NYC plenty.

Like others we chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. We started with the grilled vegetables, followed by chicken rolls with spinach and pine nuts and the pork cheeks. All were absolutely delicious, though we were bemused by the vegetables costing a little more than either of the meat dishes, which were around €10. Nevertheless, the whole meal, including a bottle of wine, was good value for the high quality. We sat outside in the square on a beautiful evening. A memorable meal in a lovely town.

If we could say one thing about our short visit to Ronda it would be that Meson el Sacristan, and owner Antonio, are a shining credit to a beautiful town. Whatever you do, take your time and allow Antonio to lead and recommend. Although interesting, the food is very simple and authentic. Balance this out with superb wine (and brandy) and you will not fail to be impressed. Do not pass up an opportunity to go, Chris & Ayshea.

By chance we had our lunch in this restaurant because we parked our rental car near. I had a delicious lamb and my wife a very good spicy chicken steak. Authentic atmosphere with local guests. Reasonable prices. I did not see the reviews here before our trip.

Pros:

Very interesting menu. A lot of starters and grilled meat. Desserts looked fantastic. Prices are reasonable for Ronda.

Location is lovely, located on one of the big squares in the old town. Try to grab a seat at the outdoor terrace,

The Fried Aubergine with honey and the Porra were fantastic. Same goes for the Rabo del Toro and the Pork cheeks with chestnut cream.

Services is very professional, very friendly and very fast.


Cons:

Food during lunch is not as good as during dinner. We had grilled lamb chops and iberian pork which were good but not as fantastic as during dinner.

Staff doesn't speak much English but it worked well anyway.
