We stayed two days in Granada and the first night headed directly to Los Diamantes, which is recommended by the Lonely Planet guide. This place is very tiny and crowded, by tourists and locals, but we found it lively and typical. We were two and ate while standing at the bar. We drunk one beer and one sangria, served with... More

I did not realize how many reviews these guys have - all well deserved. It is a non-touristy place, friendly service. The fried stuff is absolutely superb, one cannot get tired of it! All seafood was fresh, everything was crispy and piping hot.

Very local place and it got crowded by 1plus for lunch so it's likely that u will have to stand and eat. The beer was served cold, the way it should be on a hot afternoon which was great. Do try the sautéed mushrooms and "knives" (aka razor clams) coz both were delicious. Oh they have an English menu here... More

This place was recommended by a local as the best seafood tapas place. It truly was the best seafood tapas I've tasted in all of Spain! (typical Granada style: order drinks and you get free tapas) The interior seems too tacky... and could be a turn off to some guests. Besides the free tapas, order fried anchovies with Alhambra tap...

I could have given it a 3.5 rating but since I couldn't, a 3-star rating is good enough. They have branches but the one in Calle Navas has an authentic feel which experience I enjoyed very much with the locals around. Half portions here are about 8euros and they taste as expected, nothing so spectacular that you can't get elsewhere.... More

A very nice tapas bar that serves great food. The staff is friendly too to help you out with the dishes if Spanish is not what you speak. You may land up eating standing but it's all worth it :)

Los Diamantes is located on Plaza Nuevo, adjacent to the Moorish section of Granada. The restaurant is very popular with the locals. Order drinks and the waiters will bring complementary tapas each time that you order drinks. The size of the serving is proportional to the size of your group and/or drink order. Los Diamantes free tapas is often some... More

Recommended by our hotel staff as authentic even though it is in a tourist plaza. We arrived absolutely packed - all Spanish families eating tapas - a good sign. We returned later and found a table and the waiter was very helpful with our ordering and made sure we did not over order. He was spot on with the no... More

Loved the food, our first free tapas was a very generous serving of paella, the second steamed clams and the third fried anchovies. Kids also ordered a ration of Calamari. All was great, but we stood for first half until we were able to grab a table. Most people stand for the whole time as there are few tables. .... More
