Wonderful creative and delicious small dishes. Seared foie gras with ginger ice cream amazing, seared tuna with seaweed and wasabi ice cream, scallops wrapped in bacon with truffle n mushroom sauce garnished with salad! Owner/chef and his wife are warm and wonderful hosts. A complete delight, highly recommend!

“Original tapas, great host”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Went here twice during our trip to Ronda, once for dinner, once for lunch - both times were delish. Our hosts were chatty and lively and had obviously worked hard to come up with an original selection of tapas. The drinks too - my gin and tonic had different tonic water with a hint of rose (I think). Our favourites were the seared tuna with wasabi ice cream, risotto tapas with mushrooms, the curry lamb with rice and the duck on toast. Really nice evening and a nice surprise when getting the bill, all the tapas were so reasonable between 1.5 - 3 euros a dish. We did have to check with our host half way through the meal that we weren't going to get landed with an enormous bill as the food was so fantastic!

“the best tapas in spain”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

thankyou trip advisor, this resteraunt is not to be missed me and my better half are both reasonable cooks but i would have no idea how to emulate any of the dishes we tried at de locos.
we were the only english people in the place(witch is usually a good sign) but we were made to feel very welcome, the owner suiggested we have a selection of the most popular tapas dishes and us being carnivourous types i asked for all of the meat dishes,between us we had 10 tapas starting with the smoked duck breast then onto the foir gras , i have never tried foir gras before and was a bit dubious , IT WAS DELICIOUS!! the owner continued to bring tapas out for us until we had had our fill, spanish black pudding moroccan chicken smoked slamon and goats cheese, we also had two glasses of white wine and a bottle of red , i genuinely thought that they had made a mistake on the bill when he produced a slip of paper whth the meager sum of 38 euro, i was expecting it to be around 70 and was pleasantly surprised to say the least, the resteraunt is in the old town of ronda near the castle and is out of the way of the tourist traps, witch i would avoid especially the ones in ronda main square as the tapas was very poor. it was a 10 minute walk from our hotel over the bridge but we followed our iphone map and found it easily
all in all the best tapas i have ever tasted could not fault anything , i wouldnt normally review a place but for de locos i have made an exeption.

“A great evening was had by all.....”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

During a 2012 Intrepid trip through Ronda our guide headed us to De Locos for our evening out on the town. Whilst somewhat tapas-ed out by our prior stops, the fare here became one of our trip's highlights, accentuated by our host's relaxed and pleasant manner. The location next to the historic town walls was great, and the timing of our wander back to the hotel meant we caught the Puente San Miguel bridge in its full illuminated glory. A most memorable evening.

“Delicious”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The reviews don't lie: this place is great! Our late lunch in Ronda at De Locos Tapas was my favorite meal of the whole trip. You really can't go wrong with any of the dishes. I tried things I knew I would like and some foods I had never had before, and thoroughly enjoyed all of them! The prices are extremely reasonable (we couldn't believe how cheap it was!), especially considering the quality of the food. I hope I make it back to Ronda in the future because I will most definitely eat here again!
