Description: At the foot of The Alhambra one can find the restaurant Ruta del Azafran. It is in the incomparable setting of the Paseo de los Tristes right in the Albaicin, which is perfect for the traveller that loves to soak up history. Our kitchen, surrounded by this extraordinary scenery, can be found in the same mix of cultures alternating between Arab flavors, international foods and the traditional tastes from Andalucia. It's worth to mention our Tuna Tataki, the Cous-Cous (chicken, lamb or vegetable), Duck Magret, Moorish Pie and also undoubtedly our homemade desserts. All of this accompanied by the best local wines, cavas from the Alpujarra mountains and a special selection of Rioja and Ribera del Duero wines. The restaurant Ruta del Azafran offers different menus for groups that are carefully put together by our chef to provide the most exquisite flavors. All of our meats are Halal and we are ready to accept any request with respect to this. We have a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our kitchen professionals who make up a highly qualified team assemble all of the dishes in the restaurant. We invite you to visit us: to enjoy the surroundings and taste our exquisite dishes.

“Not to be missed.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This was one of our top meals in Spain. I would say in the top 3 of the 12+ we recently had. It is perfectly located with great views of Alhambra. The service was excellent and most importantly the food was A+++. I can highly recommend the Caprese salad and the grilled pork loin. The establishment itself was nicely outfitted and had a trendy interior.

“Ambient-food-service”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Extremely nice food-ambient-service-location mixture in that restaurant. We enjoyed very much our dinner, the food was delicious, service perfect and the views to the Alhambra amazing (while restaurant itself locates in a splendid part of the old down, with small streets and shops)! Definitely going back!

“Excellent food, wonderful service, amazing location”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Spent a wonderful evening in that restaurant during our trip to Granada. The location is good, with an amazing view to Alhambra. Very romantic! Service was good, the waiter spoke good English. The menu consists of very different dishes. We had salmorejo which was one of the best I have had so far. Cous-cous with lamb was very good. And desserts - absolutely amaizinf! They also offer a good selection of local wines and staff is very professional and helpful.
Definite recommendation from me.

“Amazing spot and delicious food!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had the pleasure to visit this restaurant while visiting Granada. I must say I was well surprised to find this place among all the Spanish tapas bars and other touristing places. The place itself is located in amazing spot with a beautiful view over Alhambra Palace. The food was delicious and worth to enjoy in this lovely atmosphere. I loved my paella! I would recommend to visit this restaurant and enjoy some delicious food if you happen to be in Granada!
