“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Definitely a must visit while in Ronda. Delicious tapas, which are slightly different from the usual tapas you get everywhere else, in a good way. Foie gras was amazing, but everything we had was great. Tapas are generally one serve to an order, so if you really like something it'll be best to order two serves. Important - you must book!

Definitely go here whether it is lunch or dinner. We were lucky on our first visit as hadn't booked but loved it so much we booked for lunch the following week. The food is superb and all from a tiny kitchen. The ajo blanca with coconut and foie on toast are not be missed. Exceptional.

“Unexpectedly and unusual (in a good sense) tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We were staying in Estepona and planned a day trip to Ronda. As we were staying for lunch we checked up places to eat and De Locos came up as top venue. As we were just looking for tapas - this looked like a good choice. We sent an email the night before via their website as a booking was necessary - got email confirmation early in the morning.

You need to walk almost out of the old town to get to this place. Its a small place with about 6 tables all outside with a large wall providing much needed shade. The boss is very friendly and hospitable and runs through the menu with everyone. This is not like any other tapas. There is a wide variety of food styles that all come in small portions. There is surely something there for everyone. They are all imaginative and tasty. Some you will want to order again. We particularly liked the tagine and also the tagliatelle with truffles.

If I would be in Ronda again - I would go straight to this place. I would give the tapas food a 5 out of 5. The only reason I gave 4 as an overall rating is that you are literally sitting outside on basic tables and chairs being eyed up by John Wayne (the ancient Persian cat that lives outside somewhere nearby that is on a constant lookout for any scraps of food). Portions are small and really tasty - so John Wayne needs to look on and simply maintain his true grit.

“A delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is the 3rd year that we've made a special excursion to Ronda during our family holiday purely to visit De Locos Tapas.
Yet again it was superb.
Real attention to detail. Quirky, inventive cooking. Nice wine.
A total highlight.
Make sure you book a table - you really don't want to miss out on this.

“Estoy loca para De Locas Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

I just wanted to start all over again! It didn't matter if we had the same tapas or just continued through the menu, I just didn't want the meal to stop. I'm going back asap.
