The menu was not extensive but all food looked interesting. There was a 5 Euro cover charge but when you saw all the small extras involved it was marvellous value. Wine was not expensive for a 5 star hotel and service and food was amazing. Wonderful for a special occassion

The setting is really unique in the boiling centre of Granada, offering a place of peace in a unique Spanish-Moorish setting with delicious food. Pure art!

The gastronomic or tasting menu was possibly the best meal i've ever had in Granada. 9 courses with matched wines which just... More

We were thrilled to be informed that live opera would be performed during our meal,and that we would be seated in the gorgeous courtyard,which meant we could appreciate it. I wouldn't pretend to like or know an awful lot about opera,but I can identify when I am in the presence of quality,and we certainly were on this evening. Our waiters... More
