A friendly place

We had been going around and had some great topas and one bad place. Stepped in because we were hungry. The waitress quickly took our drink orders and pointed us to a topas menu, pick one to go with your drink. Unsure of what we wanted the waitress helped pick one. While she got our drinks we... read more

Small tapas bar just off main tourist eating area. Staff fantastic, friendly and cheerful, happy to engage in conversation. Excellent variety of tapas with staff more than happy to decide different tapas each visit to enable us to experience food we wouldn't normally choose. Generous drinks. Thanks guys

Visited this restaurant in Dec during one of their "off peak" hours (about 6pm) - just us in the small bar but the person serving us was very helpful and attentive. Free tapas with the drinks, and the tapas were as good as some of the ones in a "regular" restaurant who charges! Great place to stop by after coming... More

Came to this place 1 year ago, it was great. Now it's really poor, 1 type of red wine, 1 really poor tapa. What happened? Luckily plenty of nice places around...

... but ok. We thought with the ratings as high as it was it was going to be amazing, I'd say it was ok but nothing special. The staff had an arrogance about them, maybe the reviews had gone to their heads! We preferred a few other less assuming haunts to this one!

Little did my family know that Granada is the land of free Tapas. We found La Buena Vida based on recommendations from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The owner was so kind and you could clearly tell how much he loved his job. We ordered a round of drinks and a tapas plate with each drink (they even give... More

Doesn't live up to the hype at all! Atmosphere dead compared with all neighbouring bars, food not up to much at all. Far less authentic than other bars and definitely not worthy of its high status on trip advisor! If you want a bar full of tourists coming in the door with their trip advisor apps open, directing them here... More

This quickly become our favorite bar in Granada, and we tried to go there as often as we could. Just like the other reviews, I can only say that the tapas are just to die for. Some of them might not be very suprising (you've eaten hummus or goat cheese with honey before), but these well known dishes are truely... More
