Breakfast does not bring out the best in restaurants but this place has some class. The décor is good and the service was fine and the pastries and other items were tasty and well presented. This is an expensive restaurant at night but you can see it was well managed evening the morning.

We had lunch there. The service and the food are excellent. The restaurant is located in a beautiful garden. Price is not cheap, but the quality of the food justified it.

We had dinner here as we were staying at Palacio de Sta Paula, and also read the good reviews in TripAdvisor. The restaurant was almost full when we arrived but emptied quickly once we were seated. The servers were very nice and attentive, howerver we felt that the food took a little bit too long to be ready. We had... More

We were guests at the AC Palacio Santa Paula, which is a lovely hotel. So, we thought we try the restaurant one night. We were shocked by the snootiness of the wait staff, the prices and frankly the food was not that good. Very poor value for the money.

Not only was the ambiance lovely in this former convent courtyard, the spanish wine selections were delicious, as was the dinner. A guitarist played some jazz and classical musical. It was an absolutely romantic and perfect evening !!!

We went for dinner with four people and were able to sample many dishes on the menu as we shared all of the plates, dishes such as the convent special salad with goat cheese wrapped in thin mango slices, local sturgeon sprayed with gold and crispy suckling pig. We very much enjoyed very dish, the flavours were well-balanced and inventive.... More

Restaurant is in the courtyard of a former convent. Beautiful setting. Attentive waitstaff. The food was excellent. The waiter recommended a local (Granada) wine which paired nicely with our suckling pig and iberian pork entrees. The chocolatisimo and Sierra Nevada desserts were a wonderful finish to a great meal.

We ate dinner here while staying at the hotel. It was one of the best dinner we had for the price we paid during our trip to Spain. From the watermelon gazpacho to the 7 chocolates dessert, the food was excellent, gourmet quality and we paid less than 150 Euros for 4 entrees, drinks and desserts. A big plus for... More
