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 :)

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.
