Compared to restaurants towards the centre of town this is expensive and the food is mediocre. It's not bad, just not good. The service is OK but on the day that we went there were only two tables occupied. The wine is expensive too. What you are really paying for is a stunning view of the Alhambra. Don't try and... More

We made reservations here during our visit to Grenada, and it was one of our highlights to our visit to Spain. The restaurant is charming, the food delicious, and views were amazing. This restaurant typically only has one seating, so you are not rushed, and can really enjoy a very special evening and incredible views. We reserved a table near... More

Courteous service, a nice wine list, hearty food, but--alas--too many tourists and already cooking down to their expectations.

I knew I was only going to be in Granada for one night and I wanted to treat my wife to something special, with the best dinner I could looking across at Alhambra as it lit up at night. I carefully read the reviews and selected this restaurant, which was rated at no 3 on TA! I booked this restaurant... More

We climbed the hill to find a locked gate with a bell. After giving our name to prove our reservation we were admitted (speakeasy style) to a lovely terrace with a great view of the Alhambra. Since it was a chilly night, everyone was eating inside. We had asked for a view, and we had the best table with a... More

We ate here on our last night in Granada - we were lucky to have "front row" seats with the magnificent Alhambra romantically lit in front of us. Unfortunately we did not have time for a nice long relaxing diner as we had booked to go to a flamenco show afterwards. However, what we did have were very good. I... More

We visited Carmen Mirador de Aixa for my husband's birthday - which was the reason we were in Granada. We were able to book on line before we left the UK which was great - and the restaurant replied their confirmation so I knew our reservation was set. I had asked for a good table as it was a special... More

We didn't eat but nor would we after our experience. Staff that didn't give a sxxx and expensive beer and terrible wine. So bad we had to send it back. The views are amazing so certainly worth going for a beer.

The view is wonderful. Food was just excellent... everything. Not inexpensive, but worth the splurge while in Granada. We were literally among only six patrons late on a weekday evening, so the service was exceptional. Of the "Carmens", this is probably the best.

We happened upon this restaurant by accident on the walk up to the view point and decided to come and eat on the way back down. It was really quiet until about 10pm. Spectacular view of the Alhambra. We had great service from all the staff and enjoyed the food - particularly the amuse bouche, soups and desserts. Excellent bottle... More
