Good tapas in great surroundings

Following recommendations by lonely planet we stopped at El Aji for a quick lunch. As it was sunny we took a table outside on the square. We ordered pork in salt, tortilla, ham croquets, aubergines with cheese and a green salad, accompanied by freshly baked bread and a jug of sangria. The food was... read 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

The deserts sounded good , but we were full already. It was a good meal and We would reccomend this... 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
