Had fab meal here well worth the hike up the hill. Beautiful little square. Lovely ambience, food and friendly staff. Best we have had in Granada by far.

We have been sipping wine and eating tapas at El Aji for the last couple of years whenever we make our annual visit. Sadly, we won't be going back. This sweet business hired a mean, rude and completely inappropriate server. After watching him pick fights loudly with customers, people in the street trying to park, waitresses at nearby restaurants, we... More

Greasy oily preparation, stale bread, iceberg lettuce and a couple of Roma tomato slices was a mixed salad. No extra plates for shared platter so we had to eat off the platter. Bathroom so dirty my wife wouldn't use it.

Really looked forward to this place but left Dissapointing. The jamon was very Dissapointing and the omelette half hot half cold. Shame as lovely interior and on pretty square. Service fine but a bit indifferent.

The evening was threatening rain and the temp had dropped so we thought we would try this restaurant as its inside only. What a great find! Classy fit out, lovely ambience, and great service!! Hard to find in Grenada so when you find it again it's thrilling! The food was delicious! Although, warning, large serves! No complaints!! The waiter serviced... More

Decided to try this place which was very close to the apartment we rented. Liked the relaxed friendly vibe after a long day of walking around Granada. We enjoyed the partridge pate, pork cheeks w/ creamed potatoes and pork chop. Located on nice quiet square filled with locals.

The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The wine was good and coffee superb. The food was not great but not horrible. Not a place I would recommend but a total bust. Not a great dining experience or a great value for the Euro.

We only stopped for a coffee but the menu seemed well priced and the square is pleasant place to wait for the C1 bus back to town. Service was good prompt and friendly.

We both ordered pork escalopes. They were so tough we were unable to eat them. Fat and gristle were running through. The meat was served with a baked potato; this was half cooked. This was by far the most disappointing meal we had on our recent holiday in Spain. When the waiter collected our plates (with most of the food... More
