6. Bar El Lechuguita – One of the best places to eat in Ronda.
A tapas route in Ronda would not be complete without a stop at this bar. The bad thing is that it is tiny, so you might have to wait (luckily, there are a handful of other recommended places on the same street).
The tapas cost 0,90€ and are very varied: from chickpeas with chorizo and black pudding to smoked cod toast, from quail egg with ham to marinated pork loin with cheese, from pringá to goat cheese with raspberry… and of course the tapa of the house: a fresh head of lettuce with dressing.
7. Bodega San Francisco
The place offers homemade food and a relaxed atmosphere, where traditional Andalusian dishes are available.
There are both tapas (1-2,50€) and half portions and raciones. The menu is quite extensive and includes meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes. One of the star tapas is the ensaladilla, so you know where to start if you like it.
8.Las Maravillas Restaurant
The name is well-chosen: the tapas here are a marvel and entirely original, like the low-temperature egg with potatoes and torreznos land or the chicken satay and basmati rice or tuna tataki.
They also have a menu that offers classic recipes (delicious oxtail) and several culinary nods to ethnic cuisine (from ceviche to poke bowl). Average menu price: 10-15€. Tapas: 1.5-3€.
9. La Taberna, to try a delicious oxtail
Here they prepare one of the best oxtails in Ronda, which they also serve with a rich chestnut sauce (15€). If you prefer to continue tasting tapas (1-3€), there are also delicious ones! Everything from montaditos to skewers of meat and fish, cheeks, hamburgers, or curry prawns.
