This is a place to go for that special occasion or just when you feel lie spoiling yourself with a group of friends. Great menu, wonderful service and owner Frank will take you through the menu in great detail. Thank you Frank for another great Sunday Lunch.

Excellent food, always a lovely atmosphere. Our 'Go To' place whenever our friends from England come over to stay with us and they all love it, as did my good friend who we took there on Saturday. I just adore the Goats Cheese & Nut Salad, Frank's Birthday Cake (a salad!) and the Pollo Relleño (stuffed Chicken Breast with an... More

We were staying nearby at Finca Naranja (which I also highly recommend), and the owner recommended this restaurant. We were very tired, and didn't feel like going out (we always eat out since we are currently traveling around the world)...but she had made so many great recommendations, we felt like we should. And I'm so happy we did! Frank, the... More

We were staying in the nearby Arriadh hotel and were directed here for lunch. It was fabulous. Frank spends time explaining the menu (in many languages!) and recommends dishes to try a good range. We enjoyed it so much we returned for dinner a few nights later and were not disappointed. Everything was very tasty and good value for money.

This restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Warm, comfortable, welcoming, the host Frank sits down with you at your table and chats with you to help decide on the perfect meal. The salads here are to die for--huge, gorgeous--and the main dishes are cooked to perfection. Frank told us that he does not go for fancy sauces and preparations: his philosophy is... More

Restaurant "El Muelle de Arriate" is located in the trainstation of Arriate, one of the White Villages close to Ronda.A tapas restaurant with quite a range of tapas and plates. As we work with fresh ingredients many times we also offer a new "invention" wich you will not find on our menu. We take special care of your children and with us you can have an early dinner if you like.In summer with spectacular views from the terrace along the railway line towards the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves. In winter close to the fireplace. We are open for lunch and dinner.
