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 - possibly a mistake. My Spanish wasn't up to querying and in a place full of locals in a crowded bar it seemed easier just to pay up and go. No prices are on show and the bill was presented as a final figure written on a napkin.

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 railway one so had our last meal in Ronda here.
Well worth a visit.

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 out to you.

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