Nicely prepared and wonderfully presented ceviche and seafood at a very reasonable cost were our experience at this unassuming venue on the Calle de Caldaza a short walk from the central plaza. Our waiter Quique handled our questions well in two languages, and helped to ensure a rich experience at a great price. Food portions were generous, and the cocktails... More

We went there with my wife and had a great time. I ordered the special of two tails of lobsters with vegetables and a side of shrimp for USD16 at it was great. Great service, great prices and great location. If you are in Granada and like seafood you should definitely try this spot.

We had a wonderful dinner here on April 20th for my birthday. The hotel is a few blocks past all of the hustle and bustle of the one of Granada's main streets and it is worth the extra steps. The menu was mostly fish. The prices were excellent. The service excellent. The waiter spoke excellent English and helped us practice... More

I was in the mood for something light and came here for ceviche. I also had a side of roast veggies that consisted of broccoli, carrots, and zucchini. The ceviche portion was generous and had a unique flavor I haven't had before as it sweetened with a touch of passion fruit juice. The veggies were roasted and very tasty as... More

We stayed in Granada for about 16 days, and only half way through our trip did we come across El Marlin. One of Granada’s main streets, La Calzada hosts a variety of eateries, shops and when the sun goes down, draws the local nightlife. However, after a week of the boisterous activities, we were in need of something quieter and... More

We happened upon this restaurant after having a disappointing steak meal the night before. El Marlin made up for our disappointment and then some. The service is fantastic . Our very attentive waiter could speak very good English and German as well as his own language. He was very interesting to talk with. We had the Blue Sea at Grill... More

This seafood restaurant is at the end of the busiest and most touristy street in Granada. It's location is slightly removed from the bustle down the street, but likely not for long. Trendy clubs and restaurants are springing up around it. Don't let it's calm and quiet fool you. The food is absolutely delicious. The ceviche starter and the lobster... More

This place is further down the street and perhaps nicely away from the 'noisy' crowd. You are able to have an easy conversation here. Had the special for the night which was lobster and it was very tasty. A few bottles of Victoria beer served by the happy & courteous staff made for a great night. Sitting outside in the... More

We are there last night and were very impressed. The service was great and the seafood platter #9 was amazing for the price. Two lobster tails, big fish fillet and lots of great shrimp for less than 20 bucks. Recommended!,
