Description: A holm oak charcoal oven awakens memories of authentic traditional cuisine at the El Retiro Taberna. Along with dedication and patience, the vegetables and meats served in this establishment are charcoal-roasted, to offer a flavour full of personality and plenty of nuances. This family business has managed itself to transmit the traditional Mediterranean cuisine heritage through different generations. All the ingredients are chosen and prepared gently, with they idea of being accompanied by the intensity or subtlety of the wines of their wine cellar.

Although this tapas bar is not a restaurant, they managed to accommodate sitting for the 10 people in our group. Everything from the wine to the numerous tapas we were offered (we left it to the cook to choose for us) was great including the service. A very good memory. They also came our with us for a while to make sure that we were on the right track back to our hotel!

We went to this bar with some friends and we all enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was really good, light and simple but really really delicious. The wine is amazing, some of my friends actually switched from beer to wine. The background music compliments the experience you have in this place with the great food, wine and service. Great place! We'll definitely come back again.

My boyfriend and I popped in here late on a cold Tuesday night and were happily surprised by the delicious food, excellent wine and good gin and tonics. It seems to be a family run spot and we found the service charming. We ordered the rabo de toro and it was delish. We came back the next night and had excellent grilled asparagus with chunks of parmesan and a steak with frites.

May not be a great place if you don't speak Spanish as there's no English menu and the young helpful staff don't appear to speak much English.

Worth a short walk off the main street to find this hidden gem where you can have excellent food once you're sick of the same old jamon and paella that you get at lots of the touristy places.

We really enjoyed this place. Its location is perfect - just one block off packed Navas so you can enjoy eveythign without being stampeded. The food is homemade and so is the servce. You won't be treated better in Granada. Definitely worth stopping by.

El Retiro is a family-owned restaurant in the center of Granada, with the charm, hospitality, and excellence you'd expect from family cooking. The choices were wonderful, the service was outstanding, and the atmosphere memorable. We loved every visit, and recommend highly!
