I´ve been here a couple of times and i will never stop to go back. The food and service is excellent, and the waiters are attentive, kind and professional, every one of them. Their tapas, platos and desserts are all very tasteful, and you wont find any better atmosphere at night in Granada! During the day as well its worth a visit!!! I would say its the best seafood restaurant in granada. Definitely.

We sat at a table outside the restaurant for a last drink of the evening. The restaurant was full and all the outside tables were taken with happy customers enjoying the evening. The waiters were so full of energy but one waiter (sorry I didn't get his name) was amazing. He was like a one man entertainment show. He worked so fast but in a really happy and funny manner. I would employ him any day to work in my restaurant. We will return for dinner the next time we are in town but well done to this guy. What a laugh! Great service, great drinks and wonderful Tapas.

We stayed nearby and based on TA reviews decided on this restaurant.
As with most restaurants and bars in Granada we ordered 4 drinks and expected 4 tapas to follow, only to be told that as we were sat at a table beneath the canopy and not at a table on the pavement we don't get free tapas.
Nevertheless we proceeded to order a mixed paella and rabo de toro for our mains, both of which disappointed. The meat in the paella was dry and chewy and the rabo sauce was far too sweet and treacly.
The selection of tapas may have been better had we sat by the pavement on the steel chairs but we didn't have a choice as we were seated in the "posh" section of the restaurant.
Having said that the service was faultless.

We are so sorry that your experience wasn't as good as expected on our restaurant. It's true that on the tables beneath the canopy you can't order for tapas as it happens in many restaurants of Granada (not in places that you can just order tapas), that area is just for food included on our menu (starter, main and dessert). Thanks for coming and we hope you to give us another chance on your next trip to Granada.

I would totally agree with the precious reviews. Great staff, excellent and attentive. Wonderful outside tapas, and comfortable, cool inside dining. We celebrated with succulent squid that almost melted in our mouths, excellent Blanco and Tinto wine, assisted in our selection by the owner. Crispy sardines. Astounding monkfish. Assorted postres to finish. A full experience. Grab an outdoor table and feast on tapas. Go inside for the bar. Further inside for lower temperature dining. Please go. Have a beer/wine. Eat.
