We arrived in town late on a Sunday evening and the restaurants on the square were only three minutes walk from our apartment so we let hunger get the better of research and good judgement. The food at El Aji is nicely presented and the dishes look much more "modern" than other restaurants in the area. However, what is lacking... More

This tiny restaurant was more than I anticipated. Their dishes were higher-end (i.e. not the usual), generously portioned, and great prices. The owners were very friendly. I ate there several times during my two weeks in Granada.

There are several tapas bars and restaurants in this delightful square at the top of the Albacian, El Aji is probably the Resturant with the best food. But even so it is overpriced and not very tasty. It would be better to come for a drink, enjoy the sunset and dine elsewhere in Granada.

The food here was amazing. From the free tapas with a hot crusty artisan bread roll, a starter of homemade pork sausage with a fiery sauce, through to the Argentinian beef with jacket potato and salad, faultless cooking and presentation. The Rioja, priced at 22€ was the best we've had on our trip. Friendly and efficient owners made us feel... More

We found some very good restaurants on our visit, but this outdoor meal was our best. Very good portions and helpful pleasant staff. Really enjoyed the Italian style dishes but other patrons seemed to be enjoying everything they ordered.

Very good food, great experience in the characteristic neighbor of Alabaicin. Rapid service and good meat (Argentinian) typical beers and wines. Walking distance from placa nueva. Cozy terrace. Four stars.

We had a late dinner at El Ají, sitting outside at the nice Plaza de San Miguel. The service was very friendly (and English speaking) and the recommendations were fully satisfying. We had a mushroom salad and a special kind of cheese stuffed raviolis and a choclate cake with mango sauce for dessert. The food is a more fancy than... More

Service was friendly and food was tasty. The 'little chicken with potatoes' was very tasty - particularly potatoes and salad. The prawns in tequila and honey were good, but very sweet. Beers were overpriced for the size. Overall, enjoyable and a good atmosphere!

We stopped here for lunch because of the attractive setting. In fact, our food turned out to be marvelous. The MENU DEL DIA began with some tasty creeps filled with spivey vegetables in an original sauce, compliments of the chef. A wonderful tuna salad with lovely fresh greens was my choice for a first course, followed by some tender pork... More
