There are several places to eat here although prices a little higher than in some of the smaller establishments in the side streets however still better than most cities. All look clean and are covered by umbrellas. Street entertainment is often available. Easy to get a taxi and has as bus stop for the tourist train

A great place to hang out and walk any time of day. Restaurants and shops galore. Watch the performers Flaminco dance, without paying to see it.

Wow what's a nice plaze, a center point for everything, Alhambra, Albayzin, and Elvira Street. Very active and live plaza, a place where you can hear music, enjoying tasty food, and touch the heart of Granada

Caught a taxi here as this is the collection point! Seemed like a drop off for the tourist train too! Lovely square with lots of people going about their business. Along the road lots of nice designer shops and it's close to the Albazin area! Enjoyed walking in the shade looking at shops before jumping in the cab.

We haven't visited any of the terraces, those are too touristy and not necessarily tasty. But you can buy your ice cream and eat it at the square while watching a free flamenco show! The ambiance is nice, you dont need a restaurant for that!

We were initially dropped here by the tourist 'train' which took us from out hotel next to La Alhambra and into the centre of the city in order to meet with our guide to begin that walking tour. We got off said 'train' at 11.00 and had an hour to kill, but according to the electronic thermometer in the pharmacy... More

It's the old city center, where the free tours have their meeting point. There are also a lot of restaurants, and the starting point of walking to Alhambra.

Our drinks were slightly more expensive here but it is a great Plaza near the centre. You can pick up taxis here for the Alhambra or take a ride on the tourist train, well worth it!

Outdoor cafes, shops, taxi stand, buskers, gelato, bakeries, fountain, lots of benches, and a little grocery store. Nice place to rest and hang out or grab a meal and/or drink. Also a great area to stay with several lanes and streets heading in different directions. The Seville Cathedral is an easy walk from it.

We were advised by our concierge to avoid this plaza as it is expensive. Correct. Mediocre food offered at extortionate prices aimed at the tourists. Much better fare in the side streets.
