“Good food, nice location, friendly waiter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

We ended up there for dinner accidentally, the local pharmacist recommended it to me but i think he was right, it is an OK restaurant.

It is an old style, traditional restaurant however i liked this athmosphere, it made the place authentic. There were mostly local, elderly people which gave us more confidence to have dinner here.

As starter we ordered local ham and cheese plate. It was really good. I could not yet get there to really start loving the spanish quisine (i think the other Mediterranien ones are much better - sorry for this! Only personal opinion.) but this plate was really nice. The ham was very good, the cheese was really outstanding especially together with the quice jam.

For the main course we ordered several things, salmon, seabass, pizza for the kids and oxtail as speciality of the house (obviously as the place is next to the bull fight arena). All of them was good, not fantastic but good. Regarding the oxtail, yeah, it is not a light one but worth trying once, it tasted good. It probably won't be your favourite dish but interesting experience.

The wines were good too.

Desserts. Well, they were really good, seriously. Try the almond cake, that is amazing. The creme brulee (where the creme is ice cream) and the chocolate cake is very good too.

So, overall, nice place, very friendly and helpful waiter and good food (still not reaching my expectations though) but it deserves a mark of 4.

“Good tourist fare if a bit over-priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Great central location next to the bull ring, service was good and food better than expected. The bill soon stacks up though when they charge 1.20 for a slice of bread (without asking) and 3 euros for a tiny coke...

“Greasy heights in Ronda!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

If you like a greasy spoon you will love this. Service at most motorway service stations are better. Price was high and the food was poor. Avoid at all costs. Best part was the toilets and the view of the passing horse.
My cholesterol level is still recovering.

“tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

This is a pretty, well situated restaurant with quite nice food. if you are in a rush and don't mind surly service it a passable place to eat. Its quite pricey but not unreasonable. There are many more lovely restaurants and tapas bars in Ronda within easy walking distance. The nicest thing about Jerez is its location, the outside terrace with fountain, pretty tiled main restaurant and lovely clean toilets. If toilets and location matter more than food and service this is the place for you!

“The food photographs do not do it justice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

Whilst looking for a restaurant we stopped at this restaurant and looked through the menu and its photographs of its meals. They were not appetising at all, quite the contrary and we walked away and kept looking. We then ended back here again as I wanted to definately sit outside in nice surroundings as it was so hot! My husband had the wild boar in pastry and as you can see my photographs are much more appetising. The food was good and wine was an acceptable price. Bottle of Cava for 13.75 but a half bottle was 10.75 so it had to be a full bottle ...
