This restaurant hit all the spots: brilliant food, beautifully presented, good wines, excellent service and fantastic views of the Al Hambra. There were 4 of us, and every dish we had was judged to be superb: this was interesting food prepared to a very high standard by a young chef (who emerged from the kitchen and introduced himself at the...

This is above the tourist area in an elevated position with the best views of the Alhambra. Its beautiful and service was great . The food however was underwhelming. My starter of aubergines was smothered in honey which was all i could taste and the main course of lamb had been cooked on too low a heat so the fat... More

We wanted to dine in a special restaurant while in Granada, and we chose Carmen de Aben Humeya. It was a small terrace restaurant. We were seated with a perfect panoramic view of The Alhambra and it’s surroundings, and as twilight arrived and the Alhambra became lit, it was an amazing spectacle! The service was point on, and the food... More

We came across Carmen de Aben Humeya restaurant after walking down from the Alhambra Palace and it was the perfect place for lunch (or dinner). The restaurant has a great view of the Palace, and is light and airy. The food was all absolutely delicious, fresh, and beautifully presented. We had several starters to share, with bread and a delicious... More

My husband and I had a beautiful dinner here. With short notice we were able to reserve a prime seat looking over the Alhambra. It was very romantic. Our server was helpful, friendly and let us enjoy our meal. The wine was amazing - make sure to drink local Spanish wine for a great value. The food was a refreshing... More

Fantastic location with wonderful views of Alhambra, romantic restaurant, tasty and well prepared food. At first glance, prices were steep when compared with others, but our lunch ended up being reasonable value given the several complimentary dishes offered.

The restaurant has a great setting and the view is simply stunning and spectacular. The Alhambra is right in front and visible from every table. The food was good but not excellent and the service was OK. The lamb chops were great, the stuffed chicken with pineapple was really good and the salad with goat cheese was delicious. Overall the...

If you go for no other reason go for the view of the Alhambra visible from every table of the restaurant. The service was very good, the food was on the expensive side (55 euros each for 2 courses and one bottle of wine) but it was of the best standard we had in almost 20 meals in Spain.

I choosed this restaurant because I was visiting Granada with my partner and I wanted to surprise him with a romantic and nice meal. We were very disappointed, the meal was not good and the service awful. Also expensive for low quality food and service. Only positive, the view of Alhambra. Definitely NOT recommend!
