Words from the owners, Hellen and Barry.
"Dining al fresco on our private terrace whilst enjoying the spectacular views towards the Guadiaro Valley and the surrounding mountains of the Serranía de Ronda. We serve you on the terrace when the weather permits it, summer and winter. On chilly evenings and the cooler winter days we will make sure you are warm and comfortable in the dining area of our charming little restaurant.

We offer lunch and dinner for a maximum of 5 to 6 tables and have capacity for a maximum of 20 guests at a time; this is how we can offer you a personal service in friendly surroundings where you will feel at home."

"The New Rustic Kitchen; where everything is prepared on the premises, with a mix of traditional and modern techniques, using local products well presented, sometimes with a twist, but never with too much fuss and where the dish is always recognizable as food.

The weekly changing menu has an Andalusian touch and offers a variety of local and seasonal produce from the market gardens of the Ronda mountain range, like its goats’ cheeses, mushrooms, Iberian pork, organic wines, cherries and chestnuts. On average it consists of 8 starters, 6 main courses and about 5 homemade desserts. Click the link to have a look at our sample menu.

The wine list is varied, and we take special care in offering you natural and organic wines from small family run bodegas located here in the area (DO Sierras de Málaga, Ronda). Many of the wines on offer can also be ordered by the glass."

An essential guide for those visiting Gaucin, there are walks to suit all levels of fitness ranging from 1 hour to 6 hours and include three of the author's favourite walks in the Serrania de Ronda.

The book (black and white version) contains detailed instructions, maps, photographs, profiles and GPS waymarks for all of the walks. The Gaucin area includes the valleys of the Genal and Guadiaro rivers as well as the Sierra del Hacho, Gaucin's own 1000 metre mountain. With a foreword by the Mayor of Gaucin, there is also general information about the history and geography of the village.
