La Chacha is another of the town's longest serving establishments. Originally little more than a shack that first opened in 1956, La Chacha is one of the town's busiest seafood houses. It offers the biggest selection of quality seafood in the centre of town, although it is also one of the most expensive.

Bodega Guerola, which clings to the corner Calle de las Mercedes and Calle San Miguel, is a beautiful and somewhat inviting old tavern that was founded in 1962. The interior is delightfully decorated with wrought iron grills, rustic ornamentation and plenty of wood, yet the large barrel-type tables on the pavement outside are a wonderful place to watch the world go by.

Probably the town's oldest tapas bar, and one of the smallest, is Bar Flores, which first opened its doors during the 1940s. This symbolic tavern is situated in the centre of Torremolinos and offers customers a slice of times gone by.

On the opposite side of the square is another popular bar called El Portico and this hidden treasure specializes in Castilian cuisine. This rustic themed establishment opened in 1999 and offers a range of gourmet-style tapas, including quail eggs, asparagus, lacón Gallego (boiled ham), angula (baby eels), and roast pepper salad.

La Reja is a family run tapas bar that opened in 1969 and it is still run by the same family today. Decorated with the emblematic Andalusian tiles and walls adorned with images of the Semana Santa processions and local ferias, this little gem offers a wide selection of rustic tapas.

On the opposite side of the street, in the Pasaje de Pizzaro, a modern style vinoteca called Abugo offers a huge selection of wines from around Spain and numerous different serrano hams, Iberian products, Manchego cheeses and handmade preserves, this trendy winery has quickly become popular lunchtime meeting place.

Situated just a few yards from the Plaza Costa del Sol, in Calle La Cruz, one will find La Campana, one of the town's oldest and most emblematic taverns. Some of the most famous wines of the province are served straight from the twelve oak barrels, and one will be tempted by their extensive selection of Sherries.

Andalucia is justifiably famous for its excellent gastronomic scene. Using first-class ingredients grown throughout the region and caught along its extensive coastline, such as jamon iberico, tomatoes and prawns, cutting-edge dishes are prepared and presented with typically Spanish flair and innovation, although the simple produce - cheese, olives, almonds - are delicious enough to provide superb simple snacks too.

Granada is renowned for its amazing tapas and for being one of the few places left in Spain where you can order a drink and be given a free tapa with it. The city is full of tapas bars, from the ones that are known only by locals, to the ones that are favoured by the international tourist. Here is our list of some of the best tapas bars across the city.

Granada is one of the last towns in Spain where you still get a free tapa with every glass of wine or beer. We have our earliest record of this marvellous tradition from King Alfonso 10th "El Sabio" (whose wisdom extended also to music and poetry, as lovers of the cantigas de Santa Maria are well aware).

With modern shops, restaurants and bars bordering one side of the central orange tree-lined promenade and exclusive yachts flanking the other, Muelle Uno is not your average shopping complex. The waterfront open-air mall offers a contemporary shopping and dining experience by the sea, with stunning views of La Alcazaba to remind you of the city's Moorish past.

Renowned for its tapas bars, Malaga offers visitors some of the tastiest tapas in Spain, and favourites such as boquerones, tortilla, jamon Serrano and fresh oysters can all be found in and around the city centre.  Some of the better tapas joints are hidden away in the back streets of Malaga, and they are well worth seeking out.

Part of any complete Andalucian experience is the tapas bar. There is a wide choice of tapas bars to choose from in Jerez and, naturally, the local fino (sherry) is the usual accompaniment to your traditional bite-size snack.

Torremolinos has long been known for its selection of fashionable bars and eateries. Some of the first cafés and bars designed to cater for visiting tourists opened here. See Torremolinos History.  Obviously times have changed since the swinging 60s and 70s, when Torremolinos was the playground of the rich and famous, and many of the nostalgic old establishments have given way to twentieth century developers.

Ronda has no shortage when it comes to finding a place to eat. There are restaurants and tapas bars located all around the town, some with terraces that provide an idyllic place to sit and enjoy your meal whilst looking over the famous gorge. Prices can be extautionate in central locations, so don´t be fooled.

This fashionable bar opens Tuesday till Sunday. 12-4pm and 8pm till midnight. Here tapas of salmon are marinated in vanilla and lemon, wild mushrooms are sautéed with Spanish onions and garnished with jamon serrano. Say goodbye to traditional tapas.
