Description: Al Hambra is traditional Spanish eatery with an unerring knack of making you feel at home. You'd be forgiven for thinking you're in a bustling Valencian taverna - but one glance at the view of the palm-fringed canals from the terrace will remind you of your romantic Gulf location. Take your pick from a parade of colourful plates, each filled with fresh, seasonal and sometimes surprising ingredients, all served in a casual family-style setting. Try the zingy gazpacho or chorizo frito, or work your way through a delicious pile of calamari rings, king prawns, or our popular chicken and rabbit paella. Locals and travellers alike come to Al Hambra to experience not just its extensive menu of authentic tapas and rustic regional Spanish cuisine, but for its lively atmosphere too. It's a perfect setting for al fresco dining or just to enjoy the city's best sangrias (served in generous clay pitchers). Ofrecemos un veinte por ciento de descuento a los espanholes.

The ambience is very good, food taste was average but the order taking staff accent was difficult to understand and didn't bother to explain the content of the food.

Make sure you go to the Al Qsar hotel to begin with, the restaurant is a bit of a mission to get to if you start at the Souk Madinat main entrance. The food at Al Hambra was authentic, high quality and good value for money. We stayed on the tapas menu which offered a good selection. The setting is... More

Did my fathers 74th anniversary in Al Hambra and as always, staff is Super friendly, starters are really good for example their signature bread. Good thing in this restaurant is also that you can pick any tapas which you can then share and skip the main course if not very hungry. I never experienced such good Sangria which we drained...

This restaurant serves very good Spanish dishes and the ambiance and staff are very nice. The breadsnail is ver original and tasty. I would have liked a more Spanish tinted interior as it looked like an international place really. Together with Chinese and Indian waitors this was far away from an Ole experience in sharp contrast to what was advertised.

Had a fab family tapas dinner here which was pretty authentic. The service was impeccable and the manager Javier a delight to talk with. The chefs are Spanish and this shone through in the dishes we had. It was a relaxed, thoroughly enjoyable evening meal out with the family - well done Jumeriah and Javier top marks.

There is nothing authentic with the decoration, matching the monumental tack of the Al Quasr hotel the restaurant belongs to, or more importantly with the food. Our foie gras (Spanish dish?) was hard, fatty in the wrong way and overpowered with the accompanying jam. Our lamb leg for two was ok but not caramelized as it should outside and a... More
