Our Locals' Tip: You must try the dessert wines from some of the local bodegas in Ronda!
Set in the picturesque village of La Heredia, La Casita offers a wide range of the most exquisite home cooking with a modern gourmet twist. Opened in 2007 by Lawrence Otterburn and his wife, Sasha, the restaurant was expanded and transformed at the beginning of 2011, creating a fantastic new dining experience either for lunch or dinner every day of the week.
Owner/Chef Lawrence has been cooking passionately for the past 25 years, working in some of the UK's finest kitchens and alongside some extraordinary chefs including Gordon Ramsey and Shaun Hill, and he has recently done some menu development at Will Ricker's renowned restaurant E&O in London.
The comfortable bar area at the entrance to the restaurant allows customers to enjoy cocktails (they make a mean Royal Mojito), a glass of fine champagne or an ice cold beer before or after your meal.
The restaurant now also features the ground breaking 'Kitchen Cam', allowing diners to see the chefs preparing the delicious cuisine that the restaurant has become well-known for as well as some new dishes with a fusion edge that combine European and Oriental flavours.
The magnificent terrace offers perfect al fresco dining and La Casita's Bodega offers its customers an extensive range of beverages including fantastic locally sourced wines and beer.
In order to keep the menu both contemporary and seasonal, La Casita have a very refreshing approach to the more standard a la carte menu. They prepare each month a set price menu including a starter and main, with an additional daily specials menu. There are usually five or six options to choose from on each course. The two-course lunch is priced at just €15 including a drink and also changes daily; the dinner menu, also two courses, is priced at an incredible €20, however there are certain dishes that have a small supplement charge. Nevertheless, in our opinion, La Casita is probably the best value gourmet, creative cuisine that you are likely to find on the Costa del Sol! An added bonus of course is that due to the affordability of the food you can happily splash out on one of their more vintage bottles of wine, treat yourself to a glass of their fine dessert wine or go for the reserve bottle when it comes to the digestifs or the whiskey at the end of your meal.

We really do recommend you book your table in advance especially for dinner as this little gem quickly fills up most days.
