Great foor

Nice and cozy place, unfortunately couldn't sit outside since they only serve food there till 11 o'clock. The menu offers plenty of meat and sea food options , the grilled octopus was beyond fantastic.

Slightly formal at first sight, it's a great place for an evening eating out. Menu is a broad representation of Andalusian quality food. The chef ads his knowledge ans skills to each course.

We were recommended this bar by some friends and it did not disappoint. It was very busy (Saturday night) so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. We were served the customary free tapas and also ordered a couple of extra ones - a mango and goat cheese dish which was delicious and a tuna dish, also very good.... More

I'm surprised nobody wrote about the Nevada Cake they have. I guess no one tried it but it is a cake to die for unlike any I have ever had and trust me I have had a lot of cakes all over the world. Try the Nevada Cake or else it would be like you went to Granada and never... More

I really enjoyed this place. If you come on your own, sit on the bar and sip wine. If you want a proper dinner sit by the tables on the side. Friendly staff. Busy place. Easy to find. I came twice during my two day stay in Granada. Would come back. Pricey though.

This looked to be a good place to eat. The drinks served were generous - a gin and tonic was so enormous that we did not think it could be finished and indeed took the whole mealtime to do so The food that we ordered however was not so good. The salads were OK - one with anchovies was not... More

We had some of the best free tapas of any of our numerous trips to Spain over the last few days. Beautiful pork pinchos, mini hamburgers, gambas fritas, pork & melted manchego - free, free, free! We also ate lunch here one day (had our free tapas starters first!) and it was lovely. Lovely Rioja & great prices.

On a cold winters evening this place looked very inviting....we were lucky to get 2 stools at the bar and ordered a large beer and a wine...the beer was 3.85€ and the glass of Protos was 3.25€ and the free tapas was a couple of slices of some lovely cheese... It was inviting, comfortable, had a lovely atmosphere, is beautifully... More

We walked in on Christmas day dinner and were very lucky to get the last table. The place was busy but in a good way , nice buzz to it. The food was amazing, especially oysters and tamaki tuna!! Service was great, everything was perfect :)
