I got a little lost trying to find El Piano but am really glad I found it. The quality and variety of food was excellent, the staff were really friendly, and the prices were extremely fair. Highly recommended!

Had read about this wee restuarant / cafe before and had my doubts about how as a confirmed carnivore I would cope with beans and things!! Need't have worried as we had a great meal and were well looked after by the tremendously helpful; cafe manager. She really went out of her way to explain what was what and recommended... More

Thank you so much for your kind words about the wholly vegan and wholly gluten-free food at EL PIANO GRANADA. So glad you met George who is the most wonderful pianist...he plays Brahms so beautifully, enough to make me cry...Few cooks can enjoy their work to such lovely music...Delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the staff. They are terrific.... More

Unfortunately we have discovered this place on the last day. As it was about to close we only had a great Alhambra beer "Reserva 1025" and enjoyed the music. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Due to the staff of El Piano Granada we have decided to stop on next day at El Piano Malaga. Absolutely delicious vegan options,... More

Thanks so much for your positive review. When the pianist is playing there is nothing quite like EL PIANO GRANADA. George Harvey Smith had a career with the Liverpool Phil and with the BBC so we are really blessed to have him, and he plays most days...Glad you liked the food too in both Malaga and Granada...George can be found...

We have literally just got back to our hotel after eating lunch here. I was desperate to get some proper vegan food after living off dry cereal, black coffee, salad, bread and chips since we arrived in Spain. This place is a really friendly café serving vegan food. And real vegan food! I didn't trust the Spanish interpretation of vegan,... More

Thank you for taking time to write about us...we are delighted that you enjoyed, as you call it, 'real vegan food'. Come back and check out the desserts another time! We have many without added sugar and without added fat, my current personal favourite being that lovely salmon pink tart which is watermelon 'cream' layered over fresh kiwi and coconut... More

Great variety of soups and salads. Enjoyed the butternut squash and the potato salad. The lemonade was also great. Definitely. Fret choice for good health food.

Good service and great food. And 10 euro's for a complete meal (soup, main dish, dessert and a drink) it's definetly a bargain. Going to Malaga tomorrow, so definetly going to check it out!

Well we hope you came by EL PIANO MALAGA after your positive experience in Granada. All the EL PIANOs bear a family resemblance, each with their own local atmosphere...It's great that you are writing about us on Trip Advisor. We really appreciate it and it helps us to attract new diners. Thank you. More

As a piano playing, vegetarian who doesn't eat gluten, I couldn't quite believe my luck when I walked into El Piano!! We stayed in Granada for three nights in May 2013 and ate here four times! The food is all vegan and gluten free and delicious. There is a choice of two soups for starters, then you can choose four... More

For us, eating twice at El Piano was a great experience. Although i am not a vegetarian or a vegan, I did not feel at any moment as if I was 'missing out' on something, on the contrary, it was great discovering new ingredients and new ways of healthy cooking. The meals were very balanced. I enjoyed the green lentils... More

We stopped at El Piano in May 2013 during a trip to Granada. We went for lunch and now I wish we had also gone for dinner the night before. It was unbelievable.

Wow! What a great review...thank you! And yes, EL PIANO GRANADA is the only EL PIANO (so far) where we have the organic chutneys as well as ordinary 'canned' things like plain tomatoes. All these are grown on our farm. As August looms we prepare to turn a few thousand kilos of tomatoes into plain tomatoes that people can use... More
