While on a two-day visit to Granada – and after an unsatisfactory dining experience in the picturesque but tourist-trappy Bib Rambla plaza – we went looking for this restaurant, prompted by the good TripAdvisor reviews and equipped with a print-out map. Narrow cobbled streets in the university area led us at lunchtime to the blue-fronted Casa Lopez Correa shortly after its owner Sue had opened its doors. Our brief sample of tasty tapas, some crisp white wine and an eclectic and delicious cheese-board was enough to decide us to book a dinner table for two.
When we turned up that evening the place was buzzing, and we soon found out why. The food here is exceptional, the service is ultra-friendly and the value is amazing. We had two (more!) glasses of white wine with a starter salad in which all the ingredients were garden-fresh. It had avocado, mozzarella, tomatoes, mixed leaves and several other ingredients that would have fed four! For our mains we had salmon and merlusa, both done to perfection and accompanied by mouth-watering sauces. With them we had assorted fresh vegetables (and even carrots sound more exotic in Spanish). Oh yes, we also had a bottle of Rioja tinto. We thought we’d skip dessert and just have coffee, but were tempted to try the Tiramisu. Two huge slices of gorgeous cake and cream arrived, upon which the diners at the adjacent table, who had been about to depart, decided instead to have the same! A very wise decision.
All in all, this meal – along with the great atmosphere in the place – was among the best we’ve enjoyed in Spain (or elsewhere). And the best was yet to come: our bill came to just over €50.
