Excellent restaurant with a superb view of Al Hambra. The service was excellent. The fiod was even better. We ate their with are young kids who enjoyed it very much. The food is fancy so it might not fit all kids but our kids loved the cuscus. The rissoto was excellent. The restaurant is Highly recommended.

We booked and arrived to find they had kept one of best tables on the terrace for us. Really kind waiting staff. The €35 tasting menu was sublime and included absolutely the best tuna that my wife and I have ever eaten. Views of the sun seeing on the Alhambra completed a perfect evening for us.

Restaurant is in a great location, with excellent views of alhambra. The service was terrible. We had to ask multiple times for things, leading us constantly chasing to get a basic service. Pick a different restaurant who will be glad of the business

We wanted a good steak night and this restaurant certainly delivered. Had a modern but homely feel and we were sat with the same very view as in this picture. Would dine there again for sure.

Description
At the foot of The Alhambra one can find the restaurant Ruta del Azafran. It is in the
incomparable setting of the Paseo de los Tristes right in the Albaicin, which is perfect
for the traveller that loves to soak up history.
Our kitchen, surrounded by this extraordinary scenery, can be found in the same mix of
cultures alternating between Arab flavors, international foods and the traditional tastes
from Andalucia. It's worth to mention our Tuna Tataki, the Cous-Cous (chicken, lamb
or vegetable), Duck Magret, Moorish Pie and also undoubtedly our homemade desserts.
All of this accompanied by the best local wines, cavas from the Alpujarra mountains
and a special selection of Rioja and Ribera del Duero wines.
The restaurant Ruta del Azafran offers different menus for groups that are carefully put
together by our chef to provide the most exquisite flavors.
All of our meats are Halal and we are ready to accept any request with respect to this.
We have a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Our kitchen professionals who make up a highly qualified team assemble all of the
dishes in the restaurant.
We invite you to visit us: to enjoy the surroundings and taste our exquisite dishes.
