We found the restaurant on the way back to the parking garage. It looked quaint and authentic. What we chose was the steak. It was good enough for the price and its being thinly sliced. Lemon given to taste. Red wine served a bit cool. Serving time good.

Only a minute from Plaza España, but this felt like a hidden gem, despite the multi-lingual menus on display in the lane on Calle Pedro Romero. Perhaps it was because we were in relatively early (8pm) on a Monday night in January, but we were the only seated diners in our whole time there, but there was also a flow... More

Had even a vegan Paella! Very nice staff! Will be gladly coming back again! Also have taken an effort to give me a description how to drive back to Malaga, because Google maps only showed us a trip that would have been a huge detour.

We could only eat out side. The ally way was busy. My wife enjoyed her food. I ordered a mix sea food platter. Lots of salad. The prawns were very, very salty, an indication that they had been frozen. As with many restaurants that have the pictures of the dishes displayed, these dishes are pre- prepared. We were unable to... More

Came across El Porton by accident. Excellent selection and combinations of meals / tapas and good prices. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

Also helped us find the best way home back to Malaga, because Google Maps was showing us only a difficult route to drive (especially for the night). Thanks a lot again! We will come back! ☺

Pretty expensive food that does not taste great. Avoid the square and go outside of it. Our lunch was salty and small given the price. The salad ( icebergs lettus, tomato, carrot and 1/4 can of tuna) over priced at 6.50 euros. Total lunch was 32 euros which is very over price. We had a better dinner at a wine... More

I was in Ronda with a tour group and our guide who is a resident of Spain recommended this restaurant as having "traditional food". I had the oxtail which was delicious and worth not a long wait. The meat was succulent and literally falling off the bone. After this lunch I had a non-alcholic drink of a green apple schnapps... More

We had lunch here on second day in Ronda but were very disappointed. We were looking for tapas and there was a considerable list by the door. We were sent right to the back of the restaurant and ignored for around 5 minutes. Just about to leave when the waiter brought the menus and asked for our drink order. I... More
