Great wholesome food and the best carrot cake ive ever Ate! When in Granada be sure to try this tiny little restaurant. Ate here three time's while in Granada and would of had more meals only for I couldn't find it..I kept walking past!! the...food is just great, healthy and good size portions at a reasonable price. Don't change a thing about this place as what you have is special. It was end of February 2020 only getting to write review now.More

My girlfriend and I were wandering around in Elvira, looking for something healthy to eat since I'm coeliac and we found "Papas Elvira". The food we found was astounding, nothing comparable to other kinds of food in Granada. Our idea was to go for some...tapas and we ended up eating a few main courses and taking Wassila's homemade baklavas. I will definitely go again in the future, totally worth tryingMore

Food is really good and the price is even better, but over all I want to comment that in this little restaurant we received the best attention during our visit to Granada. We went 2 times and even though the staff was different, the attention...and the service only got better! Keep it up!More

The best part is the service and people that work there. But food is very tasty too. And inexpensive.

Delicious, unusual food. They have vegetarian options. I wouldn't know what to recommend because we liked everything we ate there every time we attended.

Great all round - food is all homemade and authentic, lots of options for vegetarians and vegans, as well as gluten-free - staff very helpful and friendly too. Small but take-out good option.

Stopped here for a quick bite of dinner on our first night in Granada. My husband and I both had the dinner that came with 3 falafel, loads of hummus, spiced rice and green salad. My husband also ordered chicken wrapped in phyllo pastry and...dusted with ground almonds. Flavouring was definitely Moroccan and very good. The owner is lovely - we don't speak Spanish but she instantly broke into English and we had no problems communicating with her. The restaurant is small with only 4-5 tables however it is clearly very popular and many dropped in to order grab and go. There are also pastries if you have room for dessert. We really enjoyed the meal and will likely eat here again before we leave Granada.More

Papas Elvira is the BEST vegan restaurant we visited during our visit to Spain. The food is delicious, affordable and the owner the most lovely and pleasant person who really takes care of her customers! After we discovered it in Grenada, we didn't go anywhere...else -- 2 lunches and 2 dinners we had. Filling and delicious. The Vegan Chocolate cake is to die for. I can't say enough about the owner, she was the most gracious and wonderful hostess. It is a tiny little place where you have to wait -- but trust me it is worth it.More

Excellent empanadas! Came here twice over a few days. Tiny spot with only 4 tables but worth waiting for!

A very small restaurant that serves delicious Middle Eastern food. The seating is limited so be prepared to wait or opt for takeout. The falafel pita was very tasty and filling. The seafood paella was just ok.

They only have room for about 6 people in their tiny space. It’s a grab and go type place with a few tables

Sorry, not sure. When we were in Granada last Sept, they were certainly open before lunch and into the evening.
