“Superb food; wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Atajate is an ordinary, even unprepossessing, mountain village on the main highway between Algeciras/Gaucín and Ronda. You might even think that there could not possibly be a decent restaurant in this tiny village.

But then you see the entrance to the Audalázar and suddenly you feel encouraged to stay a bit longer. And you would be right if you did so. This is clearly not just an ordinary village restaurant.

The title says it all, except for one thing. The atmosphere is actually very romantic. There is even a nod towards France. They serve crêpes, something I have never seen in this part of Span!

Every month the restaurant holds a tapas evening. But the tapas are nothing like those you get in a normal bar. They are both innovative and exquisite! And the locals flock there for that evening. Get there before 9:00 if you want to be sure of getting a table immediately.

But, hey, you can always wait at the bar until a table is free! Carmen or Maria del Pilar, two of the co-owners, will take care of you.

All in all, this is a fabulous place that we have been to many times, and we will always return to it.

The prices are very affordable.
Menú del día: €8
A la carte: main courses between €11 - €1
Desserts start from €4
Vegetarians are especially well catered for.

The very local wine, made in the village iitself - Mures Crianza - is very good value at: €10 a bottle.
Locally made Ronda wines start at €10.50 a bottle.
Other wines are available, starting at €7 a bottle
(A note for British, Australian and North American visitors; no, that €7 is not a misprint!)
