Located in the small square “Plaza Andalucia” or Calle de Agua, at first glance this bar looks like a burger bar, and it is! More like a pub, this place is very popular with the locals and younger people. Burgers, hot dogs and toasted sandwiches are on the menu but this is also one of the best places for tapas. Try the “lagartitos”, strips of fried pork or the fried squid “chipirones”. Watch the people go by and soak up the atmosphere of a modern Spanish Tapas bar. Bar Kiboca is also one of the oldest in Grazalema. Started by three friends in 1979, Quiñones, Borrego y Caballero hence the name “Ki – Bo – Ca”

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.
