Another super restaurant on the hillside opposite Alhambra! We were quite surprised to find ourselves almost alone even at 20:45 for dinner - but it was obvious from the quality of the table linen, cutlery and attentive service that this restaurant was well patronised. Indeed it was - a full house by 21:30. So suggest that a reservation is a good idea - and if to care about the view then ask for a table at the front. If you can't get one then don't turn down an opportunity to eat at this restaurant! Go for a drink at a bar with a view and then go to Carmen Mirador de Axia for dinner! Outstanding!

After a day visit to the Alhambra we couldn't get enough of it, so we asked a taxi driver for a restaurant with view on the Alhambra.
On to top of the Albacin, near the plaza San Nicolas (mirador de Albacin) we went to Carmen Mirador de Aixa.

Granada has many tapas bars, kebab houses and small restaurants but a true luxurious restaurant is hard to find.
This is one of them, the food and wine are excellent and the view at night from the terrace on is absolutely gorgeous!
Service is very good and the surrounding is quiet and couldn't be more romantic.

My Fiancé took me hear just after proposing expecting a really romantic evening. The views are good but better in other spots. Olives were awful, main nice but nothing special and service very poor.

Definitely a must due to the extraordinary view of the Alhambra. The food is quite good but not particularly memorable. It's expensive . . . but worth it for the ambiance and view.

We booked a table for four and we we're not disappointed. The terrace faces the Alhambra and as night descends, the changing light is spectacular. But it's not just about the views because the meal was very good too, from a small menu choice, and the staff we're friendly and helpful. All in all a really nice experience finished off with a lovely amble back down through the Albacin to our hotel - lovely!
