“Great setting”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The Plaza is wonderful and full of Spanish flavour. The food is great (as real Spanish food always is...) and the salads are only bettered by the wine and coffee...

“Hygiene Alert”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

I have though long and hard about whether I should be frank - this after all is a small restaurant and I'm sure that people rely in it for their income.

We visited Bar Grazalema Plaza in the mid afternoon, and requested an outside table ( the rather slovenly and disinterested waiter waved his hand and said the sun would be gone in a few minutes - it wasn't - and seated us inside.) Drinks came reasonably quickly, but the food took over an hour, and only then were we told that some dishes were not available.
When it arrived it was tepid, unappealing and bland, and the crockery/cutlery were none too clean.
The real kicker, though, was the food poisoning that followed the 'regional soup'.

This was not the only place in Andalucia which made my family sick - maybe it was because of slow food turnover in the low season. Much as I loved the area, I lost 3 days of holiday and as many kilos.

“Avoid this one!”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

We stopped for lunch on route from Ronda to Arcos de la Frontera. This is a beautiful village and we chose this restaurant as it looked popular with the locals. We sat at a table on the plaza and looked at the menus that were on our table. A very unfriendly guy came to take our drink order. On his return we ordered what we wanted to eat and were told the kitchen was closed! Food was still being brought out and when I went inside orders from locals were still being taken.
All three of us were polite & spoke in Spanish so avoid!
