As with so many Lonely Planet "Top Rated" spots & things to do and see, I'm baffled as to why they list this as the no.1 attraction in Granada. It's a shop. It's a commercially run cafe. Each day at a specific they do show you how to make a chocolate bar of your own, but er, otherwise it's a... More

We had a great time making chocolate together as a family. Kids ages 12 and 10. Instructor was fun and had the kids laughing a lot. And we all appreciated being able to participate in the entire process - starting with roasting the beans. And of course everyone liked picking the ingredients for their chocolate bars. Really fun activity!

We weren't sure what we were walking into but glad we walked in! Other chocolate places, you just mix together ingredients but here you are fully immersed in making chocolate from the very beginning of roasting the cocao beans to making of chocolate drinks and bars.

It was fun and entertaining. I don't know if it's because Kenny eats too much chocolat but he makes making chocolaté a real fun!

Not only was Kenny an excellent and enthusiastic instructor, they accommodated our large group of 6 after the last tour had already ended.we had so much fun learning about the process of chocolate making, starting with the cacao been and then the mixing of the seeds into a...

We stopped here on our trip around Granada on the carriage. We were offered free samples of chocolate, chocolate tea and liqueurs and that's about it...didn't see anything else as we had to go on on our tour...things are a bit overpriced if you ask me...so decide for yourself. Products are good though.

We had the most amazing experience at Choco Museo & Cafe. Their all-you-can-eat breakfast is an easy and affordable way to fill your belly before exploring Granada. The museum offers insight to viewing how chocolate is made from scratch, and you can even participate in the process. The staff who work here are very friendly, many of whom are bilingual.... More

If you have a hankering for a little free chocolate and liqueur this is the place to be!! I had about 8 types of liqueur when I was there, the marketing tactic here it to give you enough free stuff and hope you feel obligated to buy something
