vegetarian, vegan and gluten free food in Ronda, Spain

Vegetarian and vegan food in Ronda (Gluten free as well)

Are there vegan, vegetarian and gluten free eating out options in Ronda?

Over the last few months, I have had quite a few emails from people asking where vegetarian and vegan food can be found eating out in Ronda. So, last Thursday (20/02/2020) I visited 25 or so bars and restaurants in Ronda to find out. (I didn’t eat in all of them but it sure was a wonderfull morning, afternoon evening!)

The answer is of course YES! Almost all the places I visited have some options available (but many don’t have it printed on their menus.) The key of course is to ask the waiter before you sit down. You’ll find them very accomodating and quite eager to help.
Key words in Spanish

Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free

Vegetarian and vegan food in Ronda is fairly easy to find. Many dishes are made to order so the scrambled eggs with asparagus and iberian ham can be made a delicious vegetarian dish simply by asking the waiter to cut out the Iberian ham.. :) The same goes with many other dishes served in Ronda. Salads and soups often have a sprinkling of ham or something else. The key here is just ask the waiter!


Many restaurants also have gluten free bread on offer. I even saw a waiter run across the road to a local bakery to get gluten free bread for one of his clients even as they were sitting down at their table looking at the menu! If you are reserving a table for the next day, make sure that you mention it (or any other food related needs.) I can pretty much guarantee that they will be eager and happy to help you out.

On the Plaza Socorro in Ronda there is a small snack bar that serves excellent food and specializes in gluten free. Its called “Las Campanas”

It’s a smallish place with a few tables outside on the Plaza. If you have gluten intolerence and you want to try traditional local food then this is the place for you. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpfull.


For vegan food options, one place in Ronda really stands out. The Abades restaurant very close to the bullring in Ronda has a great menu for vegans actually printed on their menu. (the only place I found that has this in Ronda.)
