“Amazing tapas free with cheap drinks!!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Although Matt (the proprietor and barkeep) is under the delusion that England will win the next Ashes, his service and his establishment in general can not be questioned.

Firstly the drinks are top quality (as they should be) but also very reasonably priced. We were drinking half pints of beer and tinto del verano (red wine and lemon soft drink) for 2 Euro.

This in itself would be great, especially combined with the convivial atmosphere and wonderful service but EVERY drink is accompanied by amazing tapas.

Piri-piri pork, thai chicken, chickpea salad and pork & pineapple skewers were all amazing but my personal favourite was the black bean and pork stew. Best of all it is completely your choice with each drink!

I can not recommend this place more highly.

Our faves:
Thai chicken

If it is summer and you haven't yet sorted out the drink scene, try a tinto de verano (red wine and lemon soda)..

“Tapas done right”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

9 types of tapas. ALL DELICIOUS!!

Spent two nights in Granada and went there first night based on recommendations. Enjoyed it so much we went back again our second night. Why mess with a good thing?!

Lots of international guests but doesn't have the least bit of "touristy" feel nor does it come with tourist trap prices.

Between two people we had 9 drinks (generously poured.... Especially the vodka!) and 9 tapas for 30 euros included a very healthy tip. We felt like we were robbing the place with our actual bill so leaving extra was the least we could do.

Opens at 8 pm and fills up VERY quickly.

“Cheap Tasty Night Out”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Owner is above board about a free tapas with every drink, unlike other bars. Although menu is limited, all were tasty. We tried extra tapas which cost ?1.20? A serving. Total cost for 3 drinks and 5 tapas for an unbelievable 12 euros for 2 people. Felt as if I was cheating the owner......a must in Granada

“Great fusion tapas - for free!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

We went to Poe after spotting it in the Fodors Spain 2012 guidebook and finding it was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel.

They have about 10 different tapas on the menu and you get to choose one for free with every drink. You find this in a few places in Granada but not of this quality. Its also different from the usual dry pork loin with bread and fries.

Highly recommend the Salted Cod and the Thai chicken. We also tried the peri pork, the coconut chicken and the pork with black bean (we had to go back for a second visit). Drinks are good value too and the portion sizes generous, especially considering their free! Great place to stop if your on a budget or just want to try some genuinely good and different tapas!
