We stumbled across this busy tapas bar on our way to " Malastrana "the real ale brewery. I am so glad we did. Not a tourist in sight ! A family run business where all the staff were busy running in and out with fresh food to the many customers sitting outside on the terrace. The barman didnt stop for... More

Great tapas, lovely wine, great prices. Really liked the barman, he kept us well fed and watered! They have a nice selection of fish tapas. The tempura sardines were very tasty.

This is a small tapas bar where the locals go and you can see why they like it. The tapas is great - both tasty and well presented. The quails egg on top of a mini burger is awesome! We went here twice in the space of 3 days and spent a good 2 hours enjoying the food, wine and... More

Had a hard time finding good food in Ronda. This place was suggested to us but it was average. The food was OK, but after 1 or 2 tapas we decided to look elsewhere.

Off the beaten track and hidden behind a carpark Los Caracoles is a tiny little bar on a little row of bars frequented by the Ronda locals. You get both a menu and a little sheet with tick off boxes so you can put your order togther and hand it to the nearest waiter saving time at what is a... More

This very small tapas bar is well off the beaten track for tourists, with a single bar tender out front. The tapas was the best we had tasted on our trip - absolutely delicious, but the experience was soured somewhat by the slighly frosty reception given by the bar tender and I felt I was overcharged by 4-5 euros -...

Saw this little bar walking from the railway station first day & went back to lunch twice. An unprepossessing spot between a couple of other similar places & opposite a town carpark, it always had locals eating & the seafood tapas was very good.Service really friendly & it is also just below the bus station & not far from the...

Awesome! If you can be bothered to walk 10 minutes out of town you will be rewarded with an authentic Spanish tapas. Real people enjoying a normal night out. So busy but the barman manages to keep everything going. Seafood is terrific, squid, octopus and prawns all great. 100% recommend.

Ordered the Calamares de Campo, two beers and a bottle of water for €6. All were fine. All of the customers appeared to be Spanish. How the barman copes is beyond me. But he manages it somehow. He's looks about 40 years d but he's probably only in his mid-twenties. Order at the bar and they will bring the food... More

Great seafood, ice cold fino and the world's most hard working barman.
