Nice position food average

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.

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 :)

We walked by the restaurant and it looked great! We were 5, each ordered an appetizer, main course and dessert and we all loved everything. Definitely recommend it!

After 10 days in Spain I finally had a very good meal. Mostly the food and service in Spain is just OK and mostly ordinary. The monkfish I had at Puerta del Carmen was excellent and the service was attentive. The menu was extensive. Limited choices are another problem with many restaurants in Spain. I'll be going back for dinner.

This place is a fantastic atmospheric bar in the center of Granada. There is lots of ornate wood and decorations and it's always busy. The bar is really long and that is where we sat. We did not try the food, just some wine which we ordered by the glass. It was excellent and served properly - different glasses for... More

This is an ok Resturant, but nothing special. One can get better food at lower prices elsewhere. Also, definitely not a tapas bar as some reviewers have said.

I see comments on trip-advisor and I reserve a table. When we arrive, the waiter see we have two little kids with us. Whilst we're ordering, he says if we wanna food for kids we can go in a cafeteria long the road. We stand up and go away immediately. Never happened in my life. Really disappointing.

If you want good food, good drink(cocktails are amazing), then look no further than tnis place. Located smack bang in the middle of Granada, with a great juke box, professional staff and relaxed atmosphere, you would be wise not to miss this place
