Fantastic place and food!

The restaurant is placed in the middle of Granada and maybe a little hard to find. Always a lot of people and its very typical spanish bar. The food is totally fantastic, you should try the salted meat! It's also cheap and the service is very good and fast. The staff look a little grumpy but are... read more

First thing I noticed when I walked in was the ACDC beer can on the bar! Great spot, loads of tasty choices and staff pretty cool and attentive. Mix of locals and tourists. Hats off guys, I enjoyed this place the most out of the ten other joints I visited in last two days.

Went here for a night out and wanted to find a local experience. We stopped in for wine and a nice drop it was then they proceeded to give us some wonderful tapas, all included. The wine was cheap and lovely the food was amazing. Don't need to go out to dinner just have the tapas from here

This is one of the best bars in Granada for tapas. The staff are friendly and the food is amazing. This bar is definitely worth a visit and is a true taste of Granada's tapas culture.

Suggested by the owner of the pension where we spent the night, it has been a great discovery. One sangria + tapa is very cheap and more cheap are the next tapas...food quality is very good!:)

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!
