We went here with friends for my birthday and had an amazing dining experience. Everything was perfect; the location, the staff, the food all exceptional.

We were attracted by the pics on google of the amazing view of the Alhambra ( which is the only good thing it has this restaurant). The service is below average, they call themselves a fine dining place , but still the bring the drinks...without any tray but instead with their own hands, touching the edge of the glass where you gonna put your lips. The food is horrible, no taste , no presentations, no good mix within the ingredients. We had a nori wrap filled with lentils which is the worst thing I have ever eaten . I don’t want go on with the descriptions of every dish but I just wanna say to the chef to take time to learn what fine dining is and probably he should try the dishes himself before putting them on the menu . Maybe study a bit more of what cuisine is. Never going backMore

The view is stunning and the service was friendly and attentive and this is what you are paying a little bit more for. There were a few things on the menu that weren’t available but were told after we ordered. We shared the Aubergine to...start which was slightly too sweet for our palettes. For mains we had the smoked Octopus, soft in the middle and crunchy on the outside but needed more veg purée to balance out the saltiness. The sea bass was also cooked perfectly. All dishes were beautifully presented.More

The only two positives were the view (only if you sit outside) and the kind waiters. Food was very medium to poor (looks good on photos but tastes boring in real life) , interior was terribel (see photos, obvious why they only take pictures of...the terrace). We made an reservation over a week ago, but unluckily we were place inside. The table cloth had stains on it and was very old, not to mention the tables and chairs. To conclude, it's a tourist trap and you should only go if you like to spend the evening looking at the Alhambra (make sure you get a table on the terrace!!) , but don't expect anything else.More

Super view of Alhambra. Pleasant dining room, probably better in summer on the terrace. Attentive service. Good food but aimed at international rather than local cuisine. However, due to the prices we expected better. Really, we could not recommend this restaurant to friends because even...with its unique view, it was not worth +50E/head for two courses and house wine.More

We had dinner here on New year's day and it was nothing short of spectacular. The ambiance was romantic and quiet, the service was outstanding, the view was unbelievable, and our dinner was the finest meal we had in Spain (we visited Malaga, Granada, and...Sevilla). We had the grilled pork and seared tuna, along with the most delicious eggplant appetizer I've ever had. And the waiter's recommendation on the wine was spot on. In some restaurants, you're paying for the view, and the food doesn't stack up, but that is certainly not the case here. We'll never forget our amazing dinner here at Carmen de Aben Humeya!More

We visit Granada yearly and this won't be a restaurant we return to! We paid for taxis from our hotel as I found this place online. The restaurant was practically empty but they refused to seat 5 of us. They had a table of 4...and wouldn't simply add another chair so instead sent us away. So reluctant to help or offer any alternatives. We found a lovely restaurant 'Restaurante Las Tomasas' which I hands down recommend over this place every time!!More

One of the most romantic restaurants we’ve ever been! The view of Alhambra is amazing, and the ambiance in the restaurant is relaxing and comfortable. The service is professional, friendly and helpful. They totally understood my dietary restrictions and adapted my meal choices accordingly. My...husband had the lamb, and I ate the duck, both were delicious! Totally recommend this place. Booking ahead is a must because it’s usually fully booked.More

Not that I recall but my husband and I did not wear blue jeans. We wore something casual but we’re not totally dressed up. Smart casual is the way to go.
