Great wine bar in Granada and you get served a tapas with each drink. Very friendly staff and they are very knowledgeable about wine. However it’s not a place where I would go for a big dinner

We had an excellent lunch here. The service was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, not a bad meal between us. The nachos were excellent even though the chips were from a bag. I would definitely come back and order the same meal again.

This place is wonderful. A great selection of wines by glass, if you need recommendations just ask Javi! A piece of Kafka in the heart of Granada. Will be back.

The Taberna del Kafka is a must for wine lovers.  Spanish reds, whites, rosés, sparkling wines, vermouth and more.  There is something for everyone, just like the food.  Tapas and larger portioned "raciones" come in vegetarian and vegan options though I highly recommend one of...Javi's specialties, the slow roasted pulled-pork. The food, wine, friendly staff and unpretentious vibe make this neighborhood bar one of the best in Granada. More

Called here for dinner.. It was really busy with locals which is always a good sign! For each drink you ordered they brought you a different Tapas which is not uncommon in Granada but a lovely touch. The tapas was great - so good we...didn’t even order any additional food? It’s a great atmosphere with fantastic service & really good food!! Try here - you will not be disappointed...😊More

Hands down the best bar we visited in Granada. Javi and Juila are attentive and passionate about their bar. My wife is Gluten free - no problem. The tapas she had were as tasty as mine. The dishes we ordered from the menu after a...couple of free tapas with our drinks were outstanding - some of the best we have had in Spain. This bar is off the main tourist drag and caters mainly to locals which is as we like it - fair prices and superb quality. I had the eggplant and goat's cheeses tower on my first night and my wife the Nacho pulled pork then we had the pork cheeks in red wine sauce form lunch the second day after a few tapas. All superb quality!. If you tell them what you like in terms of wine and food, both Javi and Julia will advice you on matchings. Lovely people and a chilled out bar experience after a few hours sightseeing. 1-4pm and then 8.30 to late. I tend to like floral, fruity, dry white wines and smoother lighter reds. If anyone wants a few suggestions to get started - some local wines Vyiriega - local white goes well with olives tomato soup gazpacho Dos flamencos - local rose - lovely with pork stewed Raventos roseil - sparkling Pinot noir like - order a bottle with a group - tasty! Castres valdes - Albariño Lagar de deuses - Godello - lovely - my favourite white Reds Peique - with the aubergine/goats cheese tower and asparagus tortilla tapas - lovely Laya - grenache style - my favourite red - very smooth Nietro - ganache style - excellent with the pork cheeksMore

We tried five times to get into this restaurant. It was either closed or PACKED to the rafters. We were so glad we preserved because it was superb! Yes, it is tiny and has odd hours, but it was worth it. More than just a...hole in the wall, it was cozy and charming, with a definite Kafkaesque decor theme. The service was engaging and friendly and the food was delicious and superbly plated. The wine selection was broad and catered to local wines. What could be better. This is an intimate experience and allows the traveler to get a wee bit closer to what Granada and Andalusian food is all about. And, to boot, the cost was not at all dear. For our experience, it was a highlight for us gastronomically in Granada. And don't forget, free tapa with every glass....and Kafka delivers on that free tapa. YUM!More

We visited The Kafka Tavern on our last evening in Granada and were so glad we'd walked the extra ten minutes to find it as it featured the best wine list we encountered in a 10-day visit to Spain as well as outstanding (complimentary) tapas....It was a cold night and we were appreciative of the delicious and warming wild mushroom soup which arrived with our first glass of wine. We were keen to try wine from lesser-known regions of Spain and the bar featured a really helpful wine map and blackboard listing wine types, regions and flavours. During our evening, we tried a gorgeous range of wines from Cadiz, Toro, Almansa and Rioja accompanied by cous cous and roasted veg and ox cheeks in red wine. The bar staff were friendly and helpful and there was a nice mix of locals and tourists who visited through the evening. We thoroughly recommend a visit!More
