The real Tapas bar. Fantastic value and great selection. Standing room only a few tables in the back. Local gang out so must be good.

A very local, humble tapas bar in downtown Granada. Good selection of tapas and cool vibe. Squid and chorizo are delic. Beer on tap, great prices and constant patrons make this much more normal than Navas. Hard to find side street, but worth the search.

This is another tapas bar in Granada, which doesn´t really stick out as being a bar you would seek out. I found the tapas to be of average quality, nothing special, although they must be doing something right as there were lots of locals calling in for a drink and tapa. If cheap is what you are looking for, then... More

This place is neat. Food is def bar food, but it is basically free and they try real hard. Great cheap place to stop.

Even though this little bar was very crowded from the outset, the staff got us our first drink within a minute. Very vibrant atmosphere, pleasant and quick staff, and for each drink you get a free and very tasty tapa. The tapa always came within 1 or 2 minutes. It's like an awesome neighbourhood pub!

Great atmosphere, plenty of locals. You choose from a list of tapas, and upon ordering a drink, you get one. It's definitely authentic and the food is lovely. My favourite is the jamon asado (roasted ham), and from what I see, seems like every table was ordering that as well. The other dishes were just as good. Do come here... More

This was just around the corner from our hotel, the Carmen. It was a great tapas bar. A free tapa was offered with each drink. We ordered a bottle of house red and were offered three free tapas from the extensive menu. Each plate was bigger than a normal side plate and the was enough to share between two. The... More

Amazing little bar ! cheap big tapas and small ones for free ordering any drink! Staff were frienldy all the time. I really enjoyed my friends dinner over there. Try Gazpacho andaluz is a cold soup drink made of cucumber,tomato,vinegar,olive oil and garlic. Must be served cold and is very healthy! typical drink from south of Spain. Great spanish cuisine!

IS the food artisinal and delicious? Not really. Is it honest, cheap, fast, and satisfying? Yep. The vibe here is great. And for two sizeable tapas and two beers, served instantly with no B/S, 4 Euros is pretty damn good. WORD
