We came here for lunch on the fly, as we had planned to eat at Bar Kiki nearby but the food options were shut down at that time. Came here and we were the only ones in the covered terrace. The cover was nice as it was the middle of August and swelteringly hot, yet we still had the spectacular... More

Amazing views, friendly staff, live music and reasonably priced food. Can't go wrong really. Can be a bit tricky to find up the hill and narrow street but well worth the mission. Alternately you can get a cab for about 10-15 Euros from Plaza Nueva.

we saw the restaurant during our electric bike trip in granada and we booked a table for the night. booking in our case was not necessary, this place was never full, probalbly because is considered a bit more expensive than others. It is true, but for a tourist, to enjoy such a wonderful view during a dinner has no price.... More

After reading some reviews we were with some afraid to go to this restaurant... But we went there because the price was ok (we payed 31Eur for 1 pizza, 1 salad and drinks) and of course the views to the Alhambra!!! The food was really good! The service was ok... Could be nicier... But we were there because of the... More

The worst food and most horrible service can spoil even the most breath taking view and El Aljibe del Poeta is a good ezample for this. We ordered stakes and pizza and got an over-grilled piece of beef, which definitely was not a stake and half-baked pizzas (all of them!), upon which we gave up after the first bite. The... More

The food was very good; I recommend the fish/seafood. There is nothing at all between you and the Alhambra:)

We highly recommend this restaurant. Just a few blocks up from our hotel, Santa Isabel la Real, at the San Nicholas viewpoint, this restaurant has great food- we had sea bass and grilled sole- good service, reasonable prices, and an unbelievable panaramic view of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada mountains. Normally, in our experience, when a restaurant has a... More

after a week in spain, this was the 1st to be chosen by nose. Although in a touristic part, this place delivered in a big way. The "land and sea" salad was the best starter I had in a long time, as well as the silantro calamari and the fish and beef dishes. Tinto House wine- simple and great at... More

We initially thought this restaurant was too close to the touristy "Mirador" area of Albayzin, but it turned out to be a very nice surprise indeed. The service was perfect, discreet and efficient. The food was good and correctly priced. And the view of the Alhambra is possibly the best in town. A definite recommendation for a romantic dinner.

I had read the reviews for the all the restaurants up in the Albycin as we wanted a romantic view of Alhambra at night. I felt the reviews were mixed on the food, etc. as it seems many have been around for a long time, are rather expensive and certainly cater to vacationers. So as we wandered up to look... More
