Hang around among the locals (bring some Spanish, the staff doesn't speak anything else) and enjoy the food. At least if you don't mind seeing the staff handle raw meat, hams, etc with their bare hands...

We fell into this bodega in a rainstorm and were pleasantly surprised at the ambience and the good anchovies tomatoes and ham. My husband had a good manzanilla. There were a number of locals in the bar end.

This is the worst food I have ever eaten in Spain and Europe. So oily and greasy that you can not eat anything and it is not cheap! Fried Auvergne, French fries, cotelette (in fact a kind of 2 cm bone with oil coming out of the meat that even a dog would barely eat), frozen espadon, everything was disgusting... More

Great little tapas bar located just off a central square, after spending a night in Jerez de la frontera we traveled back via Ronda. We where looking places for lunch when we found Bodega El Socorro - when you walk in you can immediately tell that it is a proper tapas bar! With the little bar side tables and the... More

First night in Ronda & all the top recommendations closed! Wandering around & happened upon El Socorro by chance. Just up from the central square of the same name, had an excellent meal including new & different dishes to us. Had porro, a thicker version of salmorejo, a delicious snail soup, pigs cheeks & chestnuts in brandy to name a... More

We enjoyed a great dinner here. The staff didn't speak much English, but we were still able to order some typical Andalusian food that we really liked. They are open for lunch and dinner.

This restaurant was close to our hotel and was recommended by the staff, and for good reason. Everyone was extremely friendly, they really tried to understand what we like and offer us dishes that would be to our taste, the food was great and the prices were great value. Definitely go there if you're in town.

I was alone exploring Ronda for a day and after finding plenty of expensive tourist traps stumbled upon this place. Although it isn't the cheapest (for the record I spent €11 on pork skewers that came wrapped in ibérico ham and with patatas fritas and onions, €4 on two glasses of red wine from Ronda, and 1€ on a beer)...
