Contrary to some of the reviews we had an excellent meal last night at the restaurant.
Tip one, get there by nine latest, this applies to most good bars and restaurants in Granada, any later and you will end up sitting at the bar. When we go there all of the outside seating were already taken, reluctantly we agreed to be seated inside, this turned out to be for the best, interior is modern, for those who might be interested, the wall lights are by Foscarini.
Three at the table next to us were regulars and there was family party of sixteen, I would suggest that all of the tables were occupied by Spanish
We had the Gazpacho for starters, ok, have had better in Granada. The mains was a sea food stew with rice for two, this was superb, Lobster, Crab, Prawns all for a mere Euro34 for two. You would pay more for two boring mains in a pseudo gastro pub in London.
In Granada when you order a drink you get a free Tapas, in our case we got a free ratatouille which was accompanied with some very tasty warm crispy bread rolls, great.
All in all an excellent night out, would recommend. If however you have a limited taste palate and decide on something boring like the fried seafood platter, you can get this most anywhere in Granada and don't then complain that it was exactly that, nice but boring.
Small grumble, no side plates but waiters were most obliging.
Tip number 2, order beer and avoid the wine, nothing wrong with wine,by going with beer and spend it on a higher priced items on the menu.

Excellent fish restaurant, but another restaurant that seems to have become a tourist trap with inevitable consequences - its not that the quality is down, but the prices seem inflated for a relatively simple offering.

Maybe the best seafood I have ever had! In the bar area we had the fried baby squid, grilled shrimp, and giant langoustines! Each dish was fresh, delicate, and delicious!!! Cunini let the ingredients shine in their natural state with minimal seasoning-just like seafood should be served. If ever back in Granada I would not miss this restaurant and would definitely recommend it to anyone I knew traveling to the city!

I have eaten at Cunini's quite a few times on my visits to Granada and had a good memory of it. This time I was very disappointed. We sat on the terrace where there was just one waiter for 11 tables. He was nice and tried his best, but he absolutely couldn't manage with so many people.
We had a vegetable dish as a starter - lots of overcooked cabbage and beans, if I interpret the squishy green stuff right. And a salad which would have shamed the worst airport junk food place.
The turbot was a tiny portion with bones and skin and just two forks of fish and - help -accompanied by the same greyish vegetable concoction we had already made the acquaintance with. I ordered quisquillas (27 Euros) a small dish of very cold cooked shrimp like animals. They were fresh - and scarce. The house wine was deplorable.
It felt as if we had landed in one of the tourist traps you find in any tourist place in summer. But Cunini should not be such a place. It has an old tradition of good and genuine Granada food which I have tried before. Now greed (give little, earn much) has taken over. I do hope they will come back to their senses and to their old standard.

We ordered the mixed grill fish platter and it was obvious that the restaurant had used "old" fish – the shrimp were chewy and flaky, and the fish tasted as if it had been frozen and rethawed once too often. Everything tasted as if it were well past the "sell by" date. The waiter took our order, delivered the food and disappeared until we asked for the bill. This was delivered rapidly – and with errors. There was a 19 euro charge for a small plate of fries. The charge was removed only after we complained. Cunini's was by far the worst restaurant experience we had in Southern Spain.
