Big portions - I loved the honey & cheese crostini. The salmon was cooked beautiful and the interior had a beautiful contemporary feel. Home Run!

We ordered pork fillets which were nice and cod pil pil which wasn't. The sauce with the cod was so cold we thought it had been done on purpose but then found out it just hadn't been heated up. No apology from the waitress, wouldn't go back.

We went there during Holy Week so very busy. We were lucky to get a table outside, giving us a great view of the streets. Didn't go inside but the tapas are of an excellent quality. The best croquetas we had all week. Good ham as well. Highly recommended.

Because of Easter processions the area was crowded. We cancelled our table to watch the procession, upon return to the restaurant a few hours later we were treated like friends because of our politeness to cancel our reservation earlier on, we were given a table and had a great meal, watching the next procession passing nearby. Food was of high... More

I was amazed that we could book for dinner on the Easter Sunday (Domingo de Ramos). The "croquetas" are to die for (both Ham and Black Pudding). I enjoyed the Muñana 3 Cepas local red wine which paired perfectly well with the tasty and soft artichokes with soft boiled eggs, ham and foie. Hope to be back soon!

This restaurant showed me how to love mushrooms and how to love pulpo. I have never been a huge lover of mushroom soups and pulpo, until i came here. The mushroom soup I had was the best in my life, it was very heavy creamy soup, the flavors were so balanced, so perfect. Then the pulpo, so soft, so juicy,... More

My son and I have celiac and found the best, safest GF food at las carmelas Granada. The waiters were very knowledgeable, very kind, made great recommendations. We ate tostadas for breakfast on gluten-free bread and had great salads and meats for lunch/dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant for celiacs!

This restaurant works for tourist and locals if you appreciate Granada. Food is very important in Granada and the people who prepare and serve the food want you to enjoy. We sat on the deck to people watch and relax. Our server spoke English and was very friendly, recommending a local white wine as we requested. Menu was in English... More

We were in a real rush to catch a bus and the waiters were great, very understanding and fast. Besides that this was the best meal we had in the full trip to Granada, Seville and Cordoba. Jamón, Croquetas, Pulpo and Alitas de Pollo. Just perfect.
