Like many, we just finished the climb from the base of the Puerte Nuevo. We felt like having a small bite and a refreshing drink. The waiters were polite and quick, the spanish omelette very tasty. But we mainly enjoyed the nice square and the silence, until a musician started its repertoire...

Tucked away towards the end of the Plaza de Maria Auxiliadora, El Campillo is well worth a visit. Food was excellent, reasonably priced and the staff were welcoming and friendly and speak several languages. Entertainment was provided by the cute local cats peering through the window! Try the white chocolate and orange sorbet dessert - it's fantastic!

We had just finished the climb from the base of the Puerte Nuevo in Ronda and were hot and very thirsty. The owner quickly reorganised tables and umbrellas for our party of 8. The beers were blissfully cold. Six of our eight went with the fish of the day (€10) at the owner's suggestion. It was delicious- light and moist.... More

Restaurant is located in a lovely area that is perfect for dining in the evening as the sun is setting. Service was very good and waiter spoke great english. The food was good but was quite expensive compared to other places, maybe paying for the view? You are charged for bread and it was beautiful nice and warm and crusty.... More

Very tasty and well cooked. The homemade desserts were delicious. We had a jug of Tinto de Verano, cheaper than Sangria and much more... More
