Hi All, We are travelling on Monday 22nd from Nerja to Granada and wondered was there anywhere on the way worth breaking the journey for ??.

Also we are looking for a mid priced Restaurant that might have a bit of "Buzz" ,especially as it's a Monday night.

We saw Bar Poe and thought it might be a good place to start ??.

WE are staying at Hotel Santa Isabel la Real .

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

I recommend you to leave at night because the area of the square romanilla(Near cathedral) meet there good places for tapas or dinner "EL Deseo", "Ermita Centro" Cunini".

Poe bar is nothing special. Another good area for tapas or dinner is navas street with bars like "El tabernáculo", "La Chicotá", "el Enganche" "El Figón de Galicia", etc, etc.

Enjoy Granada.

Hi Opel,

To respond to the first part of your post. The journey from Nerja to Granada really is quite short a journey, no more than 90min. And I would also say that as you will be on the motorway from the coast up to Granada you will be adding more time and km onto your journey by stopping.

That said, the valley of the Alpujarras is a very worthwhile stop. The first village Lanjaron is about 10-15 min detour from the motorway. Check out further posts on the alpujarras.

Finding a good mid priced restaurant on a Monday night might be tricky enough. A large number are closed on Mondays. Bar Pöe (I am not sure but it might close on a monday aswell) is truly a great spot in Granada, but it is a bar. There is always a great buzz, and the tapas are fantastic, I would find that maybe 3 or 4 would be enough for me as a substitute for dinner. And that will come to about a tenner.

Calle Navas or Campo de Principe is your best bet to find a restaurants with a bit of a buzz and value for money.

That said, my personal advice would be to enjoy a decent size late lunch and just make the most of the free tapas in the evening. You will find that usually 3 or 4 will be sufficient and they come absolutly free with every drink.
