This attractive entry to Andalucia’s restaurant scene sits in the station at Arriate, a small town near Ronda. This restaurant is now owned and managed by Frank Röttgering and the chef is Isa Molinillo Garcia. Frank has created a warm and intimate atmosphere in the former railway goods shed. The delicious, healthy and varied dishes that are served are more than reasonably priced. Here you can choose from an extended menu. Or you let Frank make his recommendations. A simple Russian salad or one filled with a cornucopia of delectable tastes? A choice of meat, fish or vegetarian… but always using excellent quality fresh, local produce. In the summer dine ‘al fresco’ by sitting out on the terrace whilst enjoying the spectacular views over the valley towards the mountains of the Sierra de Grazelama. Here you can sample our homemade dishes by the platform as the driver of the last train for the day gives you a friendly wave. In winter snuggle up by the open fire whilst sipping a hot cup of coffee accompanied by a slice of homemade cake. Recover in the afternoon with a local casserole after a long hike through the surrounding countryside… and in the evening […]
The restaurant is run by a cooperative of young people who believe in the future of the area. They opened to the public in autumn 2002. It is 19 Km. from Ronda on the A-369 to Algeciras in Atajate (Malaga), and the building is very visible at the entrance of the village. The name, “Audalazar” is one of the tributary streams of the Genal river, which is between Atajate and Alpandeire, but is also a Moorish village that disappeared in 1570, and comes from the Arabic Wadi-al-jara, Guidazara, Vidazara, Udazara, whose meaning was “river stones”.
Situated in Atajate, Restaurante Venta El Paisaje provides accommodation with free WiFi and access to a garden with a terrace. A continental breakfast can be enjoyed at the property. The restaurant at the apartment serves European cuisine. The nearest airport is Malaga Airport, 68 km from the accommodation.

The Cueva de la Pileta (Cave of the Pool in English) is in the province of Málaga (Spain) has cave paintings and was discovered in 1905. The cave had been discovered by a Spanish farmer called José Bullón in 1905 who was looking for bat guano around the original entrance in a place called the abyss of the bats. He had assumed that the cave markings were made by Moors. He had found human remains and markings on the walls. It was investigated by Abbe Henri Breuil, a French Catholic priest, archaeologist, anthropologist, ethnologist and geologist, who had come to Spain because of Colonel Verner’s reporting of this important cave in Benaoján, near Ronda. Verner had himself lowered into the cave and later reported his findings which attracted international interest. Breuil was able to identify nearly fifty drawings and some of these resembled symbols. He stayed for two months funded by the Prince of Monaco. The final scientific paper was also authored by Verner. The son of the man who found the cave managed to find a better entrance in 1924 and that is the one used today. The same man made a discovery of an unknown chamber that gave […]
