We were pulled in by the Menu del Dia and thought we'd be able to save a few extra euros. At first everything was fine and our food came out fast however the waiter seemed disinterested and rude.

The vegetable tagine (main course of menu del dia for 9.50) consisted of several boiled vegetables and was completely tasteless (not even salted). The waiter explained that clients do not like spiced food, although indeed in Moroccan cuisine it should be spiced. The menu did not even include cuscus nor bread. In the men's toilet there was no toilet paper,... More

We were desperate and went in here for lunch, lured by the 9,59 menu del dia. As another review mentioned, this did not include bread, which is necessary for a eggplant spread they served as a first course. Also not included was tea ~ 5,60 for two and Iva. After we ordered I could hear the microwave beeping in the... More

The best couscous in the world!! I broke my No 1 rule, entering an empty restaurant. I was a little apprehensive, thinking why at 14.30 on a saturday is this place empty? Anyway we took the plunge, and ordered chicken couscous, words failed me, this should be renamed, the nearest description i could think of was the Rolls royce of... More

We walked in off the street not knowing what to expect and had a great meal in lovely surroundings. As the previous reviewer said, the lighting was dim and the place was relaxed and very friendly. We weren't sure if it was going to be touristy and overpriced but it was neither of those things. A lovely place to visit... More

Very close to the Plaza Nueva and Alhambra, this place was a great way to end each of our days in Granada. The atmosphere was vibrant yet relaxing at the same time. The seating area is dimly lit, comfortably appointed, and divided into small sections of varying elevation that make it very nice for enjoying the company of friends, family,... More
