The food is very tasty and sophisticated, the view on the Alhambra is amazing. The staff was perfect. The ambiance is very romantic, I highly recommand this place.

There can be no better place to dine in the Albayzin than this. We were shown to a terrace directly overlooking The Alhambra and as as we ate our delicious meal the sky turned from light to dark as the floodlights opposite lit up the palace. The service was impeccable from staff who knew the menu thoroughly and who were... More

This restaurant was recommended to us as a “less touristy” fine dining experience off the beaten path. It took us a while to find it, as it is indeed, a hidden jewel, but it was worth it. It is a bit on the expensive side for Andalucía, but if you would like excellent cuisine (including fabulous tuna) and an exquisite,... More

We passed this place the previous evening, but as we were really after something simple then, decided to book with the maitre'd for the following evening. This allowed us to anticipate the meal more, and we dressed up a bit better, too. I can see why others have described the service as poor; I would say that it was relaxed... More

This restaurant is well-known locally for its over-priced, mediocre food. Unfortunately, I learned this only only after we had eaten there. It is true that one has a wonderful view of the Alhambra from the restaurant. It is too bad, though, that they do not complement the great ambience with a good meal. I had a chicken dish which turned... More

Carmen de Aben Humeya is perfect for viewing the sun set and the changing light against the Alhambra. They have a couple of tables available if you only want drinks and these tables provide a great view. Besides the great view, their drinks selection is very good so this makes views even more pleasant.

Me and my husband found this place with amazing view by accident for a glass of wine and were amazed by the vuew and great service. This is a perfect place for a romantic dinner. The prices are quite high though. But... worth it for sure.

Our party found this restaurant by sheer luck. Having been to the Alhambra and caught the land train we got off at stop No 5 to go to the view point. As it started raining and we were hungry we caught sight of this restaurant down some steps. What a find!! The food was marvellous - very Master Chef! -... More

Leisurely Sunday lunch with Alhambra in background. Walked there up winding alleys. Lovely food. Good service. Plenty of choice. Definitely worth trying if you have a few days in Granada.

Stumbling across this place was one of those serendipitous experiences when travelling. We had been walking around the wonderful Albaycin and had considered far inferior places for lunch just because they had a view, and then my husband spotted this down a narrow street. Down the steps and onto the terrace, and there before us was one of the most... More
