We took a lunch menu and we loved it. One of the best places in Ronda where you can try typical Andalusian cuisine and great tapas.

Great bar. Nice square. Great service. Food is good Spanish Fayre. If your hungry and want something tasty you cannot go wrong here. Big Steaks. Large pork Chops and Oxtail. The fish also is very fresh and tasty. Ice cold Cruz Campo beer to wash it down with.

I have had lunch here for the last two days. The service and food excellent. Lots of local people which is a good sign. An excellent bottle of red rioja only 8 euros. Only downside is it's closed on a Sunday!

Ate here with my wife after we stumbled upon it during an evening walk. Situated on a little Plaza filled with local families. Not a tourist spot as we were the only non-Spaniards there. Manuel the owner was great. We ordered a selection of appetizers like the 'Old cheese, spicy sausage, mixed salad and papas fritas. All of it good... More

We had a lunch here during our walking tour in Ronda. If you are looking for a tasty local dish for reasonable rates, do not hesitate to get there. Do not expect high standards in terms of the equipment and the service.

Nothing exceptional in the setting nor the place itself, but great deliscious local dishes prepared locally with a local wine. Avoid the tourist restaurants and go local.

this bar is in a nice small square close to the centre of Ronda. I had red wine at 1 euro a glass which was good value and the price is the same as the locals pay which for Ronda is nice to find a bar that doesn't charge tourists more than the locals. there was a selection of tapas... More
