Good food to accompany good view

Tough to find but well worth the view once we arrived. The melted cheese and pate appetizers were almost a meal in themselves. We had the duck and veal meals - both were excellent. A very romantic meal with the view and ambiance.

We had a wonderful dinner here enjoying the beautiful views of the Alhambra from the Albaicin. After some initial confusion over seating (the lower, outdoor seating was for those not ordering dinner) due to our poor Spanish skills, we got a table with a great view through a clear plastic tent. Our pear salad with goat cheese, mousaka and sweet... More

This restaurant is located up the top Cuesta de las Tomasas in Albaicin, Granada. With an amazing backdrop of the Alhambra as you eat you can't not enjoy. The service is great, food is good depending on what you order - I suggest you try the sweet chicken in puff pastry which was a winner with most of us on... More

We stayed very near this restaurant in the Albaicin so it was easy to walk over and give it a try. The setting is lovely with a full view of the Alhambra across the valley, especially stunning at night when it's all lit up. The restaurant is outside under a covered terrace which was perfect on a warm September evening.... More

It's quite a strawl up the hill from the shopping area of Granada, but it's well worth that. The restaurant only has an outside dining area. It is well recognised for its amazing view over Alhambra from up the hills. The area is quiet not not well discovered by tourists, it seems. The dishes are stylish, though they serve straight...

The food at this restaurant was excellent and coupled with the panoramic view of the Alhambra in the fading sunset and subsequent floodlight illumination made this restaurant outstanding. Good choice of food and service was attentive and caring. The cost of the food and drink was extremely reasonable bearing in mind the location of this restaurant. Good English was spoken... More

This place was a real find. we managed to get a last minute booking on the Terrace and it was well worth it. Funnily enough it was pretty much empty until the people who had booked and taken the trek up to St. Nicolas' square had suffered the jostling and the crowds - must be the experience (I suggest the...

great location and despite being a tourist destination the food was very decent to good and the prices could have been worse (certainly compared to others in the neighbourhood). the service was competent and friendly - especially the waiter with the beard who had a big smile and time for everyone.

We had our best meal in Granada here. It was recommended by our hotel for its unique menu which is a mix of Spanish and Moorish food. The view of Alhambra is spectacular and watching the colours change as the sun set was amazing. There were only two tables including ours at the beginning of the evening, but even as... More

We just stumbled onto the restaurant in one of those strokes of fabulous good luck. We had dinner on a terrace which framed the view of the Alhambra. As the sun went down, the Alhambra lighting came on and the view was amazing. We started with a cocktail, then had an amazing salad of tomatoes topped with, I think the... More
