Great location overlooking the old town and close to the gorge.. Lovely setting and decor. We were a bit disappointed with the limited menu but our food especially the slow cooked lamb shank was excellent. Decent wine list and not overpriced BUT we came away a bit disappointed without being able to say exactly why. Also we were the only patrons that whole evening but they claimed they were busy at that lunchtime. No reason for you not to try it. In the summer the view from our table in the evening sunlight must be stunning.

I'm surprised at the varying TripAdvisor reviews of Casa Santa Pola. Our party of six dined at the restaurant in mid September '13. We were looking for a place to have a special meal to celebrate the birthday of one of our party and we weren't disappointed.

The restaurant is on several descending levels overlooking the gorge in Ronda so the views were excellent. The menu offers great choices. Our party sampled smoked sardines, anchovies and a very tasty pate. For the main course three had the suckling pig and two of us had the oxtail. All were well presented and of a high quality. Desserts were excellent, particularly the garnache de chocolate. Our wines perfectly accompanied the meal and were reasonably priced at €17 per bottle. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and had the stamina to deliver dishes down the number of levels to our table.

Great meal, thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Was really impressed by this restaurant. It looks a little dark and dated from outside but the food and attitude are anything but. All 3 courses, the wine and the music were excellent and original. The service was attentive but not intrusive.

The night we went was very quiet - only one other couple but we didn't feel awkward. I suspect that in busier evenings the atmosphere would be excellent

I can't recommend this place enough

Loved this restaurant perfect setting right on the edge of the Ronda gorge- fantastic views a truly spectacular place for a romantic lunch, food was amazing both in presentation and flavours but have to say the service could of been better but never the less would go back again.

With such a fabulous view should this restaurant and bar give every guest a warm welcome. Nevertheles, they do not. After searching for any waiter to be seated, we found one anywhere at the back. After 20 minutes of waiting for any reaction of a waiter (for example: "hello sir, what can i do for you?") we decided to leave. Shame!
