“Good food but not sure if worth the cost!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Read about the restaurant in a guidebook and since our hotel is just next to it, thought it must be a sign! Expected that it will be expensive, being michelin starred and all and indeed, the food was delicious and creative. Service was adequate but I had a feeling our waitress wasn't all that patient with one in our party who was dithering about what to order and whether things can be swopped around etc. We had the lunch tasting menu and the food was just sufficient, not too much. I'm just not sure if the meal is worth its cost though. We paid nearly 200 euros each for the meal with only 3 of the 4 in our party having wine. The decor is minimalistic and I thought the single hung rose with a spotlight on it an interesting touch. But the place isn't really warm and welcoming. Maybe that's what michelin star restaurants are like??

“SABENA - SUCH A BAD EXPERIENCE NEVER AGAIN”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

This is unbelievable. We came here in the past many times over and again. The food at the time was of good quality although with little variation in the menu and presentation, but of class. The staff then was friendly. But revisiting the restaurant after many years, it was a complete disappointment. Staff had changed and weren't very forthcoming either. The prices had escalated, although they were far from cheap in the past. Service was lousy. Not a place to recommend and not to be revisited by us.

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

We had a very special dining experience here. We chose the four course tasting menu for lunch with paired wine. The roasted lamb was the best ever tasted. Service was top tier. Our guide had told us it was the best in Ronda. We totally agree.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

I had dinner for my birthday with my husband and 2 kids here and it was delicious! The service was great and the food was even better. We all ordered the middle of the road tasting menu and we had just the right amount of food. The shrimp, pork cheeks and beer ice cream were to die for. The entire meal took about 3 hours. My only complaint was the bread. The selections were cold, dried out and tasteless. Very strange for this type of restaurant. I would return.

“Fantastic modern venue in a beautiful old town”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

Service was impeccable. I recommend taking the accompanying wines with the menu, as the sommelier is both knowledgeable and approachable. Highlights for me were a rich and unique take on gazpacho (finished with pistachio and cherries!) and a rather more basic and earthy pig cheek - better than it sounds. Obviously pricey, but unlike some, worth it.
