Calle Calzada is the best place to go in Granada during the evenings, especially for drinks and people watching. There are numerous restaurants that offer decent meals, but, you will find that the prices are a little higher than in the hidden gem restaurants that are located 1-3 blocks off the main Calzada drag. I'd also recommend that you look... More

Classic pedestrian only walk, with tables out and waiters pestering you to sit and eat. Vendors and street performers also. It's loud, brash, expensive and can be annoying if you don't adjust your attitude, slow down, have a beer and relax!

This is the street that has most restaurants, bars and some local street entertainment. It is fun to sit, al fresco and enjoy the local flavor. If you wish you can be serenaded by strolling local musicians, for a tip (you help the local economy in the process ), buy cashews, hammocks, small pottery, etc.

Check out this main street during the evening, it's completely safe to walk after dark. Most of the street is closed off to cars, so it's nice to walk along and check out all of the restaurants and bars. A great social scene at night!

There is a fancy ice cream shop, and that's fine, but i like whet the locals go. Apt 4 blocks toward the lake, on the left side is the Eskimo shop (Say 'Eskeemo' if you're asking someone about it). Pick you hand dipped ice cream flavor, and then ask them to make a milkshake out of it (batido). Great and... More

This a very nice place to walk. With many options of restaurants, bars and also many hotels and other interesting places. As every place with massive tourism, can be very annoying all the people almost forcing you into their establishments, as well is very sad and also annoying the people doing dangerous fire juggling, kids begging for money and food,...

This area is very touristic. There are many fancy western restaurants, bars and boutiques. And westerns getting wasted. Dozens of restaurant servers trying to convince you to come into their establishment. A bit annoying. On the positive side, beautiful architecture, a nice church and a cool mural down in the street.

The upper part of the street is pedestrians only and most visited, numerous restaurants and bars with outside seating. Also a few shops and a very good bakery. Further down the street there is motorised traffic, but wide shady pavements. Part way along is a big sports field where a number of baseball games were in progress when we visited.... More

So many choices in this place, you'd be surprised on multiple ways. The setting is quite simple: a street filled up with people and tables (no room for cars) where shops around you fill up the air with all kind of smooth food scent, and so many friendly people you'll feel at home.
