It was my second time at this restaurant, the first one was amazing (around 6 months ago)but this one it wasn't as I expected. I don't know if the kitchen staff have changed but it was a shame. We ordered a lamb cous cous as starter and it looks reheat at the microwave, some parts so hot and another ones... More

We are in here on a quiet Monday evening, although we were not the only patrons there at the time. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the ambience was relaxed. We had a window seat with excellent views of the Alhambra a short distance away. The menu was simple, seemingly with little choice, but this detracted from the excellence... More

I read somewhere that you know that you are an adult when you go to a restaurant where the menu does not have pictures. This restaurant really did need to have pictures, or at least more description, on its menu. At first glance there seemed to be limited choice and rather bland descriptions, but these masked the real quality of... More

Last week we had a great dining experience in the Ruta del Azafran Restaurant in Granada. We had a table at the window with a view of the illuminated Alhambra above us, just across the small river Darro. The food was well prepared and included a complimentary appetizer and an after-the-meal liqueur. The service was friendly and sensitive, observant, but... More

Had dinner with my wife and daughter and we all loved it. Our table was by the window where the la hambra (castle) was illuminated above us. Starters were the ham and cheese plate and the caprese salad and all of these were so tasty. , as well as looking like works of art. Our mains were just as delicious.strongly... More

We had dinner her for NYE- set menu of 6 courses and wines plus celebration packs for €80 p person. We were lucky that our hotel El Ladron de Agua secured us the last table. The meal was lovely and filling and full of local tastes, the service and waiters very attentive and helpful. We met quite a few of... More

We had dinner here before heading to Sacromento for flamenco (the bus to Sacromento stops right outside this restaurant). The food and service was quite good. Pricing is a bit on the high side but they gave us free appetizers.

We went to this restaurant twice - the first time for dinner because it was near our hotel, and the second time for lunch because we liked it the first time. The dishes are varied and good. The first time we went we had the pastela for an appetizer - excellent and many restaurants in Granada serve it. It is... More

Just returned from month in Spain and have to say this was our favorite restaurant. Sitting by the window, gazing up at a full length uplit view of Alahambre, listening to quiet jazz and eating beautifully prepared and delicious gourmet fare.....heaven. Affordable for mid-range travellers; attentive but not overbearing service; great reasonably priced wine; located on the river at five... More
