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

Staying at the hotel we had our first dinner at this restaurant: we were sitting inside and thought atmosphere was somewhat gloomy - but the dining experience was great. Quite expensive but good.

I was staying at the Palacio de Santa Paula and decided to try El Claustro, the restaurant located in the hotel. I am a vegetarian and the menu did not look very promising, but they were very accomodating. The food was delicious, the presentations were creative, and the servers were very attentive. I hope to return on my next visit... More

From the moment we stepped in the door (minutes before the kitchen was to close) to the time we left, this was a wonderful experience. Service was attentive, kind and knowledgeable. Cuisine worthy of a michelin star with locally sourced ingredients. Menu not as seasonal as it could have been, but this minor detail is really the only semi-negative thing... More
