Very fine restaurant. Excellent food . Every dish was a success. The service is extraordinary. Prices are very reasonable. We shaked the hand of the chef at the end of the meal. Will definitely return.

We had dinner here on our first night in Granada. The food was fantastic and incorporated lots of local cuisine's favorites with a twist. They first brought a small house tapa with goat cheese balls covered in a wine marmalade, served in a very unique way (see tree-like picture below). We tried the octopus and the red rice starters.

Traveled to Granada on a Monday and many restaurants were closed for the evening. We were staying at the AC Palacio and decided to eat at the hotel restaurant after roaming all over the city during the day. To say the least we were pleasantly surprised. From the outset, we were warmly greeted and presented with a hors d'oeuvres of... More

They try very hard to present their food in the way of almost a one Michelin star restaurant. The service was good, food almost excellent, except I thought my suckling pig was way too salty. The desert was also just a bit lacking. So if you don't have Michelin star expectation, you will be very happy with the food.

Treat yourself to a delicious meal at this classy restaurant. The restaurant is very unusual, with an amazing high ceiling and lined with glass fronted wooden cupboards, Modern windows look out over the cloister. The food is served beautifully in small portions, but you will not be hungry when you leave. This is real fine dining and every dish is... More

My partner and I dined here several nights ago. The food presentation was amazing and the taste delicious. This restaurant is located on a courtyard inside the AC Palacio Santa Paula...a Marriott hotel. It was raining the evening we dined and to be honest, we didn't expect a lot. We were so pleasantly surprised by the fantastic food quality and... More

The best thing to say about the restaurant is the surroundings. We were there in the evening and sat in a private room with a view over the old courtyard of the monastery. Beautiful light settings. The food was very simple, good taste for sure, but to be served a very large piece of meet with no extras is simply... More

We don't normally eat in hotel restaurants when there are an absolute abundance of fantastic places to search out and taste sensations to experience however I am so glad that we did on this occasion. We were originally trying for the Sunday night however it was fully booked so settled for Monday (a lot of restaurants shut on a Monday).... More

We recently celebrated my wife's birthday with another couple in Granada at this beautiful restaurant. FULL DISCLOSURE: we were supposed to celebrate the occasion elsewhere but that restaurant wasn't open on Sundays and Mondays so we decided to try El Claustro instead, having read some good reviews.
