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. Am I glad that we ended up here. Not only is the setting... More

I decided to go out for a nice lunch after having a great morning stroll through Alhambra. I did not make any reservation, although this is recommended. The setting is on a moorish house, turned into a convent and nowadays a 5 star hotel. I decided to go for the paired "Granada Menu". From the "amuse bouche", I could confirm... More

We had the classic menu for lunch and it was superb! The amuse bouche was quite flavorful and testified to the excellent meal that followed. Service was impeccable and not intrusive. Well worth it!

The setting is blissfully peaceful in an old cloister. We went with 2 toddlers who were very happy with the fountain and surrounds. The middle 65 euro,menu was delicious and even better when we realised it came with matching wines, which were all excellent. The only disappointing course was the Rouget Barbet, a bit dry, everything else was innovative and... More

Our table of three had a gastronomic delight at dinner at this venue. Initially we were directed to a table set on the patio, which ordinarily would be great, but the evening was unseasonably cool, and the staff were obliging to set a table inside and moved us. The decor of the restaurant is most pleasant being part of the... More

Thank you very much for the visit, Ron. We are deeply glad that you enjoy with dinner, it is true that dine on the terrace is very nice but in the cooler evenings inside is better. Hope to see you soon. More

If you don't like to read a lot, here comes a summary. Highly overpriced, pretentions food that doesn't taste so good. I wouldn't recommend this place. I was at this restaurant with my family, the location is really beautiful, the service was impecable, however the food seemed pretentious but wasn't really so good. For the starter I had foiecamole, which... More

We pay 60€ per person and it was not all worth it. Starters and desserts were good, but main courses were awfull. Both of them recommended by the waiter ( corvina and ternera blanca) and both were quite untasty and food quality was limited... Quite a dissapointing experience, there are tons of better places in granada to eat for 60€... More

We spent a week in Granada in May and ate dinner at El Claustro four times. It was that good! The menu, which features Chef Juan Andrés Morilla's modern interpretations of Andalusian classics as well as dishes with a more global influence, ranges across a good selection of fresh, locally sourced meat, seafood and vegetables. The wine list, though not... More

Not ones for eating in 5 star hotels normally, preferring local establishments, we were several years back recommended to try El Claustro and it certainly was very special. Returning a few years later, we were delighted that if anything it was even more special. The service was impeccable, the food amazing, original and superbly well presented and all tis in... More

We were part of a tour, and the room we had set aside was wonderful. There was a welcome in the beautiful central patio, and then wonderful food served at our tables. The service was obviously efficient, but also very friendly and welcoming. A lovely experience.
