Location and contact

There shouldn't be any problem finding this restaurant. It must be (one of) the best restaurant(s) in Granada. Fabulous Spanish cuisine. The ambiance is typical Spanish and seriously lacks atmosphere but with those for whom divine food is of more importance than a vastly inflated price for a view of the Alhambra, they will not be disappointed.

Charming environment... small portions but flavorful food skillfully prepared...so it SHOULD have been a lovely evening. NOT!! The waiters were abrupt, quick to clear, insensitive to basic customer needs- like water refills. We were made to feel like an intrusion to their evening. CAN NOT...More

The old boys who serve you here know what they are doing. Slick service to happy eaters. Would not be surprised if arrogant punters got arrogant service back though. The oxtail and chocolate croquettes are worth the flight to Granada. Rich and indulgent. We also...More
