An authentical spanish cellar

Simple but very nice place, frequented by local residentes, very freindly service. And the best: the food is delicious.

There are already a number of useful reviews of this traditional bar, and I think they are all generally true. I loosely organised a group of people after a conference at the local university to come here because some of us wanted to try more traditional sherries. They also had some good beers, excellent food and tapas. This came somewhat... More

Very enjoyable tapas, especially the honeyed aubergine. Too many tinned ingredients in the salad though.

It's been 3 years i live in Granada and i always wanted to try this traditional bar but never could, and now i wish i did not! The decor is the best thing about it a bodega which looks like it has never been touched or cleaned up for 50 years, with a formidable painting on the wall behind the... More

Friendly neighborhood tapas place with exceptionally good food. Coffee and tostada in the morning, delicious tapas with your drinks all day. I was very comfortable being here alone, too.

So good my boyfriend and I went back twice. Quick, easy, well priced and the portions of tapa are huge. Not to mention the selections. One of those sit back, relax and let the chef bring you his incredible plates, that are made right in front of you. Be sure to order as many drinks as you can, just so... More

We went to Bodegas Espadafor because it was near our apartment and had good review on Trip Advisor. From the outside it didn't look promising - just a bar for local workers - but don't be put off. When we went in we were directed to some tables for eating at the rear of this lovely, traditional bar. There is... More

This is a traditional tapas bar with free tapas for the table when you order a drink - the first was paella with chicken and mussels, and the second a stewed sausage dish, both of which were great! We also ordered the jamon asado (roast pork) because that's one of their specialties - very tasty, and the oil was left... More
