Serendipity happens when you least expect it. Took a while to actually find but so pleased it was recommended to us for our last evening in Granada. Magic. Open terrace (with patio heaters as necessary) overlooking the floodlit Alhambra across the valley. Disappointment at not being at the front of the patio was soon overcome as we sat beside a...

OMG! This restaurant is a 10 in EVERYTHING! Located in the Mirador de San Nicolas area this is THE place not to miss. The view of the La Alhambra is stunning, the food is even better. Fine dining with a menu that embraces the Mediterranean cuisine in a gourmet and creative way. The wine pairing is excellent and the service... More

First, you cannot find a better place to overlook the Alhambra as darkness falls and the lights appear on the outer walls across the valley. Just simply breathtaking. Second, the staff and the menu were excellent.

We walked down from Mirador de San Nicolas to get to the restaurant, and it took us a few minutes to figure out how to get there, but when we did, the view inside the doors took our breath away. It really is a magical spot; with our reservation (we called in advance) we were seated at an outdoor table... More

Appaling. Came here for the view which is stunning but ruined by a petulant maitre D' who the owners really must send on a customer care course. We had a reservation and on arrival and were shown to our table, we noticed one closer to the front and the view and asked if we could be moved but were told... More

What a view one has of the Alhambra particularly if you have a table on the outside edge of the terrace. Food was fantastic. Service was efficient and not pushy. They recognise you are there to savour both the dinning experience and the view. Lovely staff and delightful owner.

We made an online reservation several weeks in advance. When you do this through their site they ask you to confirm closer to the date. We called when we reached Granada and left message to confirm our reservation. When we arrived at restaurant they gave a very poor table. When we asked to move hostess told us we couldn't because...

My wife and myself went to have dinner at this wonderful restaurant and we were very lucky to find one table without previous reservation. The food was superb and also the personnel, who was very kind and aware of any need from us. They have the best view of the Alhambra you can find. But best of all: the owner,... More

There's no denying that this restaurant, all but hidden from the street, offers an unparalleled view of Grenada's central attraction. Happily, the food is wonderful as well, and the service is attentive. However, if you're in a relative hurry, this is not your restaurant. Allow up to 3 hours on a busy night.
