Unique & delicious

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!

El Claustro, or The Cloister, is found in the Former nunnery which now makes up the Palacio de Santa Paula in Gran Via, Granada. An oasis of peace in the middle of the bustling city which is Granada. 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

Gorgeous atmosphere and creative food. The appetizer they bring is awesome, like a work of art. The little sip of gazpacho, amuse bouche is great. I have to say the minimalism is extreme. The entree, suckling pig, is a to up square of prom with a potato chip, cut in thirds. They needed to give more meat and some vegetables,... More

The location is very easy to find. The waiters were all very friendly, and the courtyard was beautiful, very romantic! the food was plated very well, and the portions quite hearty. Good place for foodies, but a little pricey.

Our meal at El Claustro, in the AC Palacio Santa Paula on the Gran Via de Colon was outstanding. The food was delicious (especially the lamb with nuts on mushroom sauce, octopus, and desserts) , the artisan plating was beautiful and unusual, there were a number of complimentary courses and the price was extremely reasonable. We ate at a table... More

We were staying in the hotel and arrived by train in the early afternoon. We were hungry and staying in the Palacio de Santa Paula Hotel so we stopped here for lunch. We were stunned by the delicious food, interesting menu, and outstanding service. It was expensive but we thought it was well worth the money. We enjoyed it so... More

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.
