Staying in a nearby hotel we decided to try this little tapas bar one evening and were glad we did. The food was well prepared and presented and we all enjoyed our tapas washed down by a local red wine which was recommended by the waiter. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. A really pleasant time here.... More

We tried to stop by for a drink, but the service was very slow, so we went back later for a meal, and were lucky enough to get a table right by the bar. We loved the food and the atmosphere, and even enjoyed the loss of electricity: fortunately, the two power cuts did not last long enough for me... More

This bar seems really beautiful and it actually is but there is one huge problem with it. The waiter. Honestly, I usually do not care about the waiters' attitude but I think, this particular waiter was especially trying to be mean to me and my friends. When asked about the tapas, he did not even look at us and said... More

Stumbled across this bar. Such a gem. Loved the decor. Very atmospheric. Very friendly owner. Loved his music too. Spanish Bob Marley! Well worth keeping an eye out for whilst walking along the river in Granada.

Brilliant little bar, every drink we ordered came with more tapas, the owner was really friendly, and the view out the little windows of the road across the river was fantastic!

This is a lovely little bar overlooking the river, on the bottom floor of the building, with cosy nooks and low brick cellar ceilings that provide a great place to have a drink or two, with the free tapas that Granada is known for. We were offered organic wine, and the food selection looks good too. If you are walking... More

After a drive from Malaga, parking the car in the outskirts of Granada & waiting in blistering sunshine for a taxi, we were ready for a beer. A short stroll from our apartment we came across this small bar with a shaded terrace. 2 of the coldest beers in the world arrived at our table followed by delightful complimentary tapas.... More

This bar and tea house has it's own terrace right on the river and a warm ambience inside. Relaxing, friendly and my favourite place for drinks or lovely range of teas. Highly recommended

Great barman introduced us to a lovely Sherry Spanish measure. Sat by the window all evening drinking and eating tapas. You can sit outside or in little coves and window seats inside.

After an all day walking marathon (walked Sacramonte and all of Alhambra...about 7 hours!!!) we stumbled back down the hill to return to our hotel and collapse from exhaustion, when I happened to look over to our left and spot what appeared to be a small outside patio, where I thought we could stop for a quick cold one, as...
