Malaga province can boast another Michelin star, this time for Bardal, Benito Gómez’s restaurant in Ronda. In this new venture, Gómez places the emphasis on local produce, reinvented tradition and deep and recognizable flavours. The inspectors from the Michelin Guide said they had been completely surprised by the authenticity and freedom of style which “combine to perfection creative gastronomy with the finest interiors.”

Thanks to this recognition, Bardal joins Dani García, who has two Michelin stars, Jose Carlos García Restaurante, El Lago, Skina, Messina, Sollo and Kabuki Raw in the list of shining stars.

Ronda is one of the best places to tempt travellers to fantastic gastronomy, but the magical surroundings of Ronda’s old-town quarter called La Ciudad are one of my favourite travel memories. From touring the impressive bull ring and bridges dating back to Romen times, to pairing local wines and dining out of your own hand made ceramics, Ronda truly tempts travellers to immerse in the best of Andalusian culture. For information on this and other attractions in Spain, contact Tourist Office of Spain in Chicago.
