This was a great night out. In a city which is preponderantly tapas we needed a good meal and this did not fail. It is easier to find by finding your way to the Alhambra palace hotel and walking down a short lane, the journey up can be confusing at night (we were there in February). Good local wine (fancy...

Despite some reservations about the food, I would still make an effort to eat here. The view south from the Alhambra across the lights of the city is fantastic! The staff are nice and helpful, but the effort to do a sort of nouveau Spanish (which is what we thought they were trying to do) did not quite work. We... More

We were staying at the Alhambra Palace Hotel and after a long journey wanted somewhere near by to eat on our first evening. The hotel staff suggested the Carmen de San Miguel. It appealed particularly as it was on the same level as the hotel and just along the lane. We didn't feel like walking back down into Granada city... More

A short but steep walk from town centre brings you to this restaurant where we had superb far reaching views over the city. Clientele was mainly several American tourist groups which did make it at times rather loud. Food, including anchovies on tomato toast, marinated vegetables, suckling pig with prunes, was tasty. My dessert, ginger cake with bananas in rum... More

The restaurant has a very scenic view, however, the scenery matters little if the food is Inedible. My wife and I had the beef tenderloin entree and it was nothing but fat and gristle. Do yourself a favor and find another restaurant.

Enjoyed very simple lunch, beautifully presented in outstanding surroundings. Service perfect, not intrusive. About 35 euros for two including 3 beers and 2 coffees ... Barely 5 minutes walk from Plaza Nueva. Excellent, fortuitous discovery on our part.

Staying in a hotel about a 100 meters from restaurant so we tried it. View from the terrace was outstanding. Service was friendly and fine-- nothing spectacular. The oxtail pastry (appetizer) was very good as was the venison. The house wine was ok. The hake was mostly tasty though I have to admit I had forgotten how may bones could... More

Highly recommended. Very nice panoramic view from restaurant especially the sun set view. Food: top favorites; first- stuffed eggplant for appetizer rather than main meal, second- the oxtail and third- the knuckle pork. Wine is acceptable, and service was adequate. Exceeded our expectations for food

Went here for dinner with our Tauck Group. Great view and excellent service. Dinner average. Appetizer, the special of the night local tomatoes and thin sliced ham, excellent. Suckling pig, their speciality, fatty and OK, desert ... Barely OK. Very nice people but I would not go back.

We were staying at the Alhambra Palace and walked over for dinner (tip: if you go don't follow trip advisors directions. There is a sign to the left of the hotel, a level walk and not uphill). The view is beautiful, especially at sunset. The food was delicious and reasonably priced.
