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”.
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 castle offers a 360 degree view of the area, with a splendid vista of Serranía de Ronda and the Campo de Gibraltar. Ancient Iberian ceramics have been found in the castle’s water deposit. Though the Romans were the first to put a castle on the strong rock of Gaucín and Visigoths occupied it, the Arabs built the remnants seen today. French invaders and Carlist rebels also occupied the castle. It has been used as a refuge for threatened populations and animals, and also as a hospital. The church owns the castle, and the chapel within the castle precincts is used for devotions to the Santo Niño.
The hotel dates back to the seventeenth century and has been tastefully restored to retain much of its original character. We offer 2 twin and 9 double bedrooms. All rooms have both air conditioning and satellite TV. Our restaurant is situated in the old stables of the original building.

We offer local traditional dishes as well as modern classics; a variety of salads and starters, vegetarian dishes, grilled and roast meats (Iberian pork, beef, venison, duck, suckling pig, lamb) and choice of homemade desserts. Our cellar boasts an extensive range of quality wines, including some outstanding vintages from the Ronda area. We have three communal areas reserved for our guests’ use: an airy indoor patio (with a glass covered dome), a cosy lounge with a log burning store and a semi-enclosed outdoor terrace with garden furniture and flowering shrubs.

The vineyard is situated in the mountainous region of Serranía de Ronda, on a high plain (approx.780m) that dominates the valley and features the village of Arriate in the background. It enjoys a very good climate: high temperatures and with a great differentiation between the daily maximum and minimum. Vetas was founded on a small estate, with 1 ha for wine cultivation surrounding the winery. It’s an ecologically friendly vineyard, with organic practices that respect the natural environment: we use traditional working methods and natural fertilizers, free of any types of pesticide, herbicide or chemical fungicide. Juan Manuel Vetas was born in Avila and then emigrated to France in order to be integrated into the word wine: Medoc (Bordeaux), where he worked, has various prestigious Chateaux. At the end of the eighties, he returned to Spain with a project to pioneer the cultivation of a vineyard in Ronda. He was working with the famous Prince Von Hohenlohe. Later he went on to receive other prestigious international awards and at the end of the nineties, he decides to create a winery with his name: “Vetas”. At this time his motivation was to increase the profile of Ronda´s Wine. He planted the […]
The Guardia Civil is the oldest law enforcement agency in Spain. It is organised as a military force charged with police duties under the authority of both the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defence. As part of its daily duties, the Guardia Civil patrols rural areas (including highways and ports) and investigates crimes there, whilst the Policía Nacional deals with safety at urban situations. Many towns and cities also have a Policía Local. The three forces are nationally coordinated by the Ministry of the Interior. The Guardia Civil is usually stationed at casas cuartel, which are both minor residential garrisons and fully equipped police stations.
