Located 5 kilometres from Grazalema opposite the excellent hotel Fuerte (if you are staying in this hotel then be sure to have an evening meal or lunch at Meson Alamillos.

Located halfway up the village (and the only restaurant not in the main village square area) La Maroma is the perfect choice for anyone needing a gluten free diet. A lot of the food on the menu is gluten free. If you visit here to eat just say “Sin Gluten” and your needs will be met. Excellent tapas and good fresh salads, well worth a visit.
This bar is run by keen supporters of bullfighting and the Grazalema tradition of running the bulls through the streets called “Lunes de Toro de Cuerda”. the bull is on a long rope of a hundred metres or so and the part tied to the horns is called the “Maroma”, hence the name of the restaurant. Inside the walls are adorned with photos of previous bull running and there are tables outside with shade.

Quite a lot of towns and villages in Spain have a club where the locals pay a yearly amount to be members. This gives them access to the games room upstairs and discounted drinks and food. Most of the members are older and it is where they go to chat and read the newspaper.
Located on the main square opposite bar Plaza, The Circulo (or Casino) is also open to the public. The tables outside are good place to sit and relax whilst sampling the tapas selection and enjoying a nice glass of wine.
Plaza Espana 22
Located on the main village square with tables on what is known as the “Alameda” the Grazalema Plaza is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. With an excellent selection of Tapas and homemade soups, croquettes, stews and meats.

Under new ownership since July 2015 bar Lacidulia looks like it will still be a great place to eat for a long lunch or evening meal. Located in the Plaza Andalucia the menu is pretty much standard Spanish cuisine with mixed plates of grilled meats and chips. Not so much for the vegetarian… Time will tell…
