My Favorite Tapas in Ronda

Snails, Spain’s ratatouille (“pisto”) with quail eggs, and a salad worthy of the bar’s name — all at a dollar a plate. Share a moment with me at my favorite tapas bar in Ronda.

Here’s a bit of the write-up in my Rick Steves Spain guidebook: “Bar El Lechuguita, a traditional hit with locals, serves a long and tasty list of €1 tapas. Rip off a tapas inventory sheet and mark which ones you want. Be adventurous and don’t miss the bar’s namesake, ‘lechuguita’ (#16, a wedge of lettuce with vinegar, garlic, and a secret ingredient). Ideally, be there at 20:15 when the doors open and grab a spot at the bar.”

There are lots of ways to choose the place you’ll have dinner. In my not-so-humble opinion, none are as surefire as a lovingly researched and up-to-date guidebook, written by a traveler whose style matches yours: Happy travels!
