We went to this as it was recommended as good in lonely planet guide and it seemed popular whenever we passed . Visited early evening for drinks and light meal / tapas. Ordered hamburgers and some croquettes . Hamburger uncooked in the middle and croquettes cold in the middle. Staff off hand. On the basis of our visit would not... More

Looking for a traditional Tapas Bar in the old quarter & found Bella y Bestia. The bar looked a bit run down but the service was excellent & the food good. The drinks were a bit more expensive than others in the area.

Stopped here for a drink whilst some family members were shopping over the road. We had a few beers and got free tapas included. It was delicious to say the least! Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended

My friends and I hung out here and had lunch when most places appeared to be closed for siesta. The prices were reasonable. We had pizzas and tapas. The tapas were quite substantially and filling. I like the fried eggplant with honey the best. The Iberia pizza was also good. It is somewhat funky in its atmosphere and a blend... More

One of the few places open on a Sunday night, so pleased we found this place. We got a large free tapas of ham bagel and chips and the food portions are huge and delicious.

No love, bad food, bad service, bad interior! They serve just deep fried stuff and a burger that was probably convenience ..pattie + sauce, nothing else.. Never go there!! Heaps and lots better Restaurants around the corner! Furchtbares Essen, Service und Design. Geht lieber zu einem der vielen Restaurants um die Ecke!!!!

We stayed there for a few hours. We were all Spanish people whose know well the area and we decided to give that place a chance. We spent almost 100€ and one of the waitresses was really rude. We asked about the vegetarian tapas and he replied rudely and helpless. Too expensive and better places around.

After arriving in Granada after 32 hours of travelling, I was very happy to find this restaurant near our hotel. I had been advised to order the grilled octopus; and I was not disappointed.

The salad portions were small. The burger bun was hard and cold. The meat wasn't well cooked. The calamares were thin, dry and oily. It's all bestia and no Bella. Avoid if u can!
