This is one of a group of restaurants near the top of the road which runs alongside the ravine in Albaicin, and so faces the Alhambra. You would expect it to be a tourist rip-off in that location, but NO! It was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Apart from the classic view of the Alhambra as... More

Our hotel recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Situated with a view of the Alhambra it's in a good location. The staff were very friendly, indulging our minimal Spanish language skills! The food was excellent, with a variety of choices and made a nice change from tapas.

We had a very lovely time at the restaurant. Our travel guide mentioned the restaurant and with good reason. Several goood points of wich the least one was the beautiful view of Alhambra from the restaurant. Prices were very cheap compared to the restaurants from our region (in Belgium) but it did not deminish the quality of the food. We... More

Food was very good with a nice mix of flavor and ingredients. Service was excellent and the waiter the best we had in Andalusia. Go there around 9PM in Summer time and enjoy the view on Alhambra which is basicall changing color every 10-15 minutes

Lovely welcoming waiter with excellent patter - handed us a three course for 10 Euro menu. We started with the most amazing Spaghetti Bolognese with a hint of Moroccan spice therein - absolutely melted in the mouth. Then Grilled Salmon with fried peppers & onions followed by cheesecake for the hubby and a delicious milk chocolate mousse for myself. Dry... More

I found this restaurant thanks to one of the many guidebooks consulted in my travel preparations, and am really thrilled that we dined here...TWICE! And were only in Granada for 3 nights! As vegetarians, I knew we would not have an easy time in Spain - not if we wanted variety and invention. So many places we visited offered pretty... More

After a long day of travel, sight seeing, and thunder storms, this restaurant looked like an oasis with the place settings and wine glasses sparkling through the window. The food, service & wine were all excellent. A great ending to a long but enjoyable day.

The terrace is set beautifully alongside the river and looking up at the Alhambra. Whilst very busy, the service was still good but what really won it for the restaurant was the food. Goat's cheese and apple, tuna tartar, jamon and manchego cheese and finally, a perfectly cooked tuna steak dressed with cinnamon - just divine. Well worth a visit.
