Much enjoyed two excellent lunches. Innovative menu with shared salads, terrific gazpachos and well thought and prepared meat and fish. The owner, Frank is attentive and passionate about the food and your experience. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be back.

We are here twice in a week and both meals were absolutely delicious. Frank is great with the children and takes the time to talk and explain the choices. Book beforehand as gets very busy. Excellent value.

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.
