As a lobster lover it was over the top. The coconut tempura shrimp were some of the best I ever had. Fresh, innovative food with great service.

We wandered in for dinner about 7pm and ordered a platter of lobster and fish to share. This was beautifully cooked and presented. Just a terrific meal, and very reasonably priced. Simply done. The seafood was the star. Very friendly service. All in all a good experience.

The fish was deep fried in... More

I am very sure that this is the absolute best fish restaurant in Granada. They offer lots of different dishes with fish and everything will done. The service is good and your can see the owners really like their restaurant. Everything seems quite clean and your can order in English if needed. We will come back.
