Food throughout the day


The day begins beside the pool with breakfast of fresh fruit salad, cereals, yogurt, eggs, toast with homemade jams and honey from local farms, and juice, tea and coffee.

Throughout the day we offer a selection of sandwiches and paninis (our specials are goat's cheese, pesto and cherry tomato or gruyere cheese, ham and homemade picallili), as well as Salade Niçoise and our own Serranía salad, meat and cheese platters, and gazpacho. We also serve a fresh fruit juice and a cocktail of the day, as well as iced coffee with cream and caramel sauce.

The food we offer our guests is a big part of their holiday. We know our guests look forward to a three course dinner after a hard day of sightseeing in the historic town of Ronda, or a vigorous walk up the Sierra de Líbar, or even just lazing by the pool. It is the highlight of the day and brings everyone together.

Dinner begins at 8pm with cava and a tapa in the Herb Garden Bar.

Dinner is served at 8.30pm four nights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) in the pool pergola. To finish we offer local brandy and pacharan, with tea and coffee.
