“Authentic Moroccan cuisine – delightful atmosphere – very good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Almunia is located in a side street, just off Calle de la Paz (Carrer de la Pau) in the city centre.

On entering this restaurant you could well imagine that you were actually in Morocco – the décor is evocative of a Moroccan riad with stone walls, rustic ceiling, mosaic tables set with colourful Moroccan chinaware and the subtle background Moroccan music completed the North African atmosphere. They offer a range of cous-cous and tajine dishes including vegetarian options.

We started with Humus with fresh Torto bread (like Pitta bread) €7.50 to share. For main courses one chose Tajine of Chicken with lemon and olives €9, the other Tajine of Beef with prunes €9.50. Both were served in traditional earthenware tajine dishes. Both tajines were very authentic – the lemons used in the chicken tajine were authentic preserved lemons.

They had a good selection of both Moroccan and Spanish wines, we chose an excellent bottle of Moroccan Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend at €16.

We finished with sweet mint tea expertly poured from a height (as is traditional) by the waiter.

Main course dishes for around €9 is very good value!

The service was highly professional and attentive.

“VEGAN FRIENDLY!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My husband and I were staying in Vincci Hoteles just around the corner and found this place by accident. We hesitated coming in because at prime dinner time (8pm) it was empty and stayed empty the whole time we were there but we took our chances and were so happy we did! The food was excellent, our waiter was friendly and decor was minimal yet festive and colorful. The menu was also available in English and our waiter understood what being vegan was after we explained our restrictions. The food was bursting with flavors and we made our selections based on our waiters best recommendations. The food was totally authentic, the only awkward thing was having no background noise or music. It was dead silent so we kept our chatter low. Aside that - we'd come back with no hesitation!
