2019 Almunecar Ruta de la Tapa

Around 30 restaurants and bars are now signed up for this year’s annual “Ruta de Tapas” running on Friday March 29 to Sunday March 31 and from Friday April 5 to Sunday 7th.

As always there will be ‘passports’ available at the participating venues, as well as at the tourism office for your use in navigating your way around all the entrants and voting for your favourites. 60% of the total score will be from your votes, with the remaining 40% being made up from a panel of 5 “secret shoppers” who will sample the delights on offer in total and absolute secrecy by means of wearing spectacles with false moustaches attached.

Each entrant will be submitting a fixed price tapa and drink for €3 during the competition period. More details of each venue, as well as their individual tapas can be seen on the official ruta de tapas web site

Please do vote for your favourites, as it means a lot to the winners and runners up. In order for your votes to count, you will need to have visited at least 5 establishments, and have had the corresponding box on the passport stamped. Completed passports can be filed at the Town Hall, or the tourism offices on Paseo Altillo or by the Aquarium. Each correctly completed passport will be entered into a raffle for some superb prizes as well!

Ruta de Tapas Almunecar 2016

II Annual Ruta de Tapas Almunecar 2016

What looks like becoming an annual event, the second “Ruta de Tapas” is currently running until 10th April.  Sponsored by the local department of trade, the idea is to help promote the smaller establishments, as well as being an excellent way to spend an evening or three.  Some 33 local tapas bars and restaurants are competing this year, so you are guaranteed to find some pretty excellent tapas!

The idea is that you use a “passport” to collect proofs of visits, and then vote on the best three tapas received. The winning bars will receive awards with the overall best getting free exhibition fees at the annual Gastro Fair in Majuelo Park later in spring.

To participate, simply pick up a “passport” from any of the bars listed.  You’ll need to collect at least five stamps from separate bars to be able to vote.  To count as votes, your passports can be posted at the Palacete de Najarra, the Tourist Office on Paseo Atilla or at the Ayuntamiento.
