We had lunch here on our way back to the shore after visiting Alhambra. The lunch included bread, wine appetizer, salad, a pork entree and dessert. The meal was very good, the atmosphere very nice and the facility was very clean. We recommend this place!

This is a shady and delightful restaurant which serves excellent Andalucian food - it was one of the highlights of our trip. Service is quiet but good.

A mixture of tradition and innovation with high quality produce, technique and service. At least one visit is a must for those who are interested in getting a glimpse of Spanish culture through its cuisine. Highly recommended.
