We ended up in this restaurant yesterday after looking in vain for a spot in other place in the same area. It was a pleasant surprise, for the location, the quality of the food and the kindness of the staff. We highly recommend it.

First course of pastilla was good as was the chocolate pudding, but the main fish courses we chose were dull - salmon with saffron sauce that contained virtually no saffron and heavily over-salted cod. The next table had lobster paella which contained far too much...More

Food was incredible and there were lots of dishes - like a tasting menu. The presentation was great and the staff were all friendly. The wine was not the best, however the G&Ts were nice. The staff were friendly also.

Description
At the foot of The Alhambra one can find the restaurant Ruta del Azafran. It is in the incomparable setting of the Paseo de los Tristes right in the Albaicin, which is perfect for the traveller that loves to soak up history. Our kitchen, surrounded by this extraordinary scenery, can be found in the same mix of cultures alternating between Arab flavors, international foods and the traditional tastes from Andalucia. It's worth to mention our Tuna Tataki, the Cous-Cous (chicken, lamb or vegetable), Duck Magret, Moorish Pie and also undoubtedly our homemade desserts. All of this accompanied by the best local wines, cavas from the Alpujarra mountains and a special selection of Rioja and Ribera del Duero wines. The restaurant Ruta del Azafran offers different menus for groups that are carefully put together by our chef to provide the most exquisite flavors. All of our meats are Halal and we are ready to accept any request with respect to this. We have a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our kitchen professionals who make up a highly qualified team assemble all of the dishes in the restaurant. We invite you to visit us: to enjoy the surroundings and taste our exquisite dishes.
