3 of us had steak, 2 the Argentina entrecote steak, I went for the ox steak - nope me neither. All the steak meals were cooked perfectly - came with a jacket potato, which had been cut in half, lightly griddled with garlic butter, and a small side salad. The last of our party had pig cheeks... read more

I had been recommended this restaurant by a friend, and after eating at a couple of different places in Plaza San Miguel Bajo, decided to have dinner at El Aji, as the menu looked great. The gazpacho was good, the provoleta was good, the chorizo was good, but the steak was terrible. We ordered the lomo argentino, and what arrived... More

The best food we had in Granada. Fresh, interesting salads. Attentive waiter and very pleasant outdoor seating.

This is quite a small restaurant, slightly out of the way, but excellent food and great staff. Strongly recommended. Unfortunately it was too cool and wet to sit out that night, but very pleasant ambiance inside too. And really good value.

We were quite surprised to find a place offering a 'menu del dia' for €10 in the Albaicin district of Granada. It was an excellent find; from the home-made houmous tapa that started our meal, to the delicious salmorejo and the freshly made pasta and bacalao dishes for main courses, we enjoyed every mouthful. We sat outside in the square,... More

We went here twice whilst staying nearby. You can sit in the square, or inside where it is very clean and modern. Our drinks-gin & tonic, and vermut were very good. Service was good, although our complimentary tapas arrived just before our meals arrived, long after drinks. The little rolls of smoky humous were delicious. We had pork dishes one... More

we went here Sunday last week, our last day in Granada. the service was a bit peculiar from the off, but we carried on regardless. Food was good and not too expensive. one of the other customers tied a dog up next to a lamppost near us that whined for ages. really irritating and no way to treat an animal... More

This is a small restaurant up in the high, narrow streets of the old quarter in Granada. We stumbled across it, after climbing up the hill to overlook the Alhambra from the city. It was 1 pm, no one else in the Restaurant, but we had read about it in Fodors. Amazing, wonderful food! The best dish was a shrimp... More
