“Go for the 2-for-1 Margaritas during Happy Hour!”
Reviewed May 15, 2010

Cafe Granada is one of New Orleans' best kept secret. I've never been disappointed in their food or service. The best time to go is in the afternoon during Happy Hour, when margaritas are 2-for-1, and some tapas are half off (or at least a few dollars off menu price). We always get an assortment of seafood - the steamed mussels in spicy tomato sauce, the calamari with loads of garlic, and the clams - everything is fresh and tasty. The fried goat cheese balls in mango ginger sauce is out of this world - we never fail to eat at least two plates of those. The menu is extensive, the outdoor seating is perfect for watching streetcars clang by, and the wait staff is friendly and helpful.

“nice tapas -- you can try it all!”
Reviewed March 28, 2010

I've been to Granada only once, but passed it a million times. It is very nice inside -- a more elegant atmosphere than the neighboring restaurant choices -- a great place for a date, or dinner with parents. The food is very good -- we liked everything we tried (and between 3 of us, we managed to order like 12 different things and were STUFFED/couldn't finish it all). The sangria is very good with big chunks of fruit! I hope to go back soon -- there are just so many restaurants in New Orleans!
