“Finally, imaginative tapas in Andalucia”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This tiny tapas bar near the Moorish gate at the far end of Ronda is a jewel. Do not expect white linen table clothes and candles, but do bring your appetite for imaginative, tasty tapas. The owners are hardworking, and welcoming. We look forward to returning. Salmorejo, WOW. Classic but somehow BETTER.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We found this place more or less by luck as we desperately looked for a place to eat and shelter from the relentless rain. It looks nothing from the outside and not much still on the ground floor (we ate on an upside down picture frame on the ground floor - The upstairs is much nicer but we had a push chair). But the smell coming from the kitchen inspired confidence and the menu was interesting, varied and imaginative. We had a selection of tapas such as mini-burgers, onion soup served in a cocktail glass, risotto, tasty morroccan chicken. We thought there was a mistake on the bill: we paid about 12 euros for lunch and drinks for 2. Most tapas are around 2 euros.

“Make your Pilgramage to Tapas Loco now!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

A owner with passion of food and don't have the gut to charge a right price!
Go there before he realize he is cheating himself with his effort.
These food should be serve in a 5 stars fancy restaurant and charged accordingly.
12 fantastic tapas, sangria, bottle of water and a coke all came up to $39.
Is a beautiful walk going and coming, if you like great food, go without hesitation.
These are many good restaurants in Ronda and for this tinny 4 tables plus 4 tables (upstairs)
bar to be number UNO here, it definitely doing something great, yes the tapas!

“Number 01 of all the Number 01 TripAdvisor Restaurants in Andalusia”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We have visited most of the number 01 Restaurants on TripAdvisor in Andalusia,
and this restaurant is the absolute winner.
Forget Tapa's.
Forget Ronda.
De Locos Tapas restaurant is worth a trip by it self.
Foie Gras with ice cream is... ohhhhh ohhh...
even worth a trip to Spain!
The tuna dish ... ohhh... ohhh...

This restaurant is NOT a Tapas bar.
They do NOT serve food here.

It's art.
It's divine.

The owner told us, he opened a restaurant, only because all his brothers are already good lawyers. So what could he do?
If they are as great a lawyer as he is a great cook..... ehhhh.....
Or should we say
SHE.... the cook , the lover...

Only a few tables upstairs,
no terrace outside,
But the friendly neighbour, does not mind to serve you a wine while waiting
and even a great tapa.

It s worth waiting.

We were the lucky once to sit at the table downstairs,
(strongly recommended or take a seat at the bar)
and actually watch the cook the lover and the.... do it all.

Still amazed.

The thief.. has stolen all the points
as this restaurant is 01 in Ronda on TripAdvisor,
but... as some one at the bar explained...

you have to walk many miles till you find a matching number 02.

“YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Again tripadvisor saved the day with this quaint little eating place...tiny and with only 4 tables outside, we left it to the owner to bring out a selection of tapas for us to try...each one was magnificent....risotto made with wheat, seared tuna with wasabi ice cream, purple potatoes with garlic, cured fish on toast and a lovely tomato gazpacho...washed down with a beer and sangria, we walked away happy and full....go there you won't be disappointed...
