A good meal and excellent gin and tonic

We had a very good meal here , well served and very tasty. We had the pork cheek which was with mashed potatoe and very tender and tasty. It was a house speciality. We also had a good house salad. The deserts sounded good , but we were full already. It was a good meal and We would reccomend this... read more

We stumbled into this little cafe while wandering around back streets of the old Arab town. Nothing too flashy to attract you, but don't be put off. Once we walked through the door we were warmly greeted and taken to a small attractively set table. I ordered a Negroni and my wife had mojito. Both were fantastic in quality and... More

This was a wonderful place to stop and eat at after wandering around for a really long time. The staff were amazing and they were telling me where I ended up since I was wondering and had not clue as to where I had been that day.

This modern restaurant is in a lovely little square well up the hill towards the St Nicholas viewpoint. It's small and the food is traditional but with a modern twist. Sea Bass in a leek and cream sauce for instance and the lemon sorbet with stem ginger. There was real attention to detail and the local wine was superb too.... More

The food were good, nothing to complain about that, though we could have eaten larger portions. The price was quite high in this respect

This restaurant was near the hotel I stayed at, and was highly recommended by the hotel staff. On the night I was there for dinner, the hotel staff was there to chill too! Food was okay - I had the braised pork cheek and my partner had the roast chicken. Both were too salty for our taste buds, but we... More

Nice, modern, but charming restaurant in the old part of Granada, on a small square. Serves tasty, freshly cooked tapas. The service was great too. Highly recommended

Great place near our hotel - Santa Isabel al Real. El Aji was in a beautiful square near our hotel in the Albayzin. We felt very welcome and safe in this area. We went twice in the evening, after a full day walking, for a glass of wine and complementary tapas. The wine was great and the tapas a surprising... More

We were recommended to eat here by a friend who was born here, partly because it was within a 100 yards of where we were staying. It was a November evening so we ate inside the small restaurant, there are only maybe 6 tables and some only sized for two. We were early and they were not really open but... More

We usually research restaurants but took a chance since the menu looked like there was something that everyone in our party would enjoy. The atmosphere was cozy and the staff friendly and helpful. Our group consisted of a vegetarian, carnivore and one with dietary restrictions. An appetizer of humus was served as we enjoyed our drinks. It was wrapped in... More
