The grilled squid was barely cooked. I had to send it back but still no visible grill marks . The salad was swimming in olive oil and inedible. And this is from someone who eats olive oil. The Rabo di Toro was also swimming in oil,. A real shame.

We visited this place recently in this past xmas season. The whole town was very busy and we decided to make a pit stop here and try out some tapas. We had the fried seafood sampler. It was very good and also local house wine. The service was some what ok. I guess since they do not get tipped here... More

Where do I begin? ... The 'homemade' soup was reminiscent of packet soup and dishwater... the meat in sauce and the meatballs (albondigas) were insipid and cold, the scrambled eggs with prawns, mushrooms and ham (jamon) was an insult to Spanish cuisine: heaps of soggy, tinned mushrooms, FOUR prawns and a scarce amount of poor quality ham. There were five... More

Paella had no taste at all, just two shrimps in a seafood paella the rest was calemari and rice. Worst service, and the atmosphere was not very good either. Price had been ok if food had been better. We recommend you to eat somewere else!

My wife and I just returned from dinner at La Chicota. She had the paella and I ordered the albondigas. The paella was very salty but my wife ate it with out too much complaint. My meatballs were cool, not even warm, so I asked the waiter if the kitchen could warm them up. He was apologetic and returned my... More

There were all these tapas places along this little street, and I just didn't know how to choose. So, I stopped a policeman and asked where he had lunch. He pointed out this tiny place I hadn't even noticed. What a great lunch we had! We shared a plate of langostinos al ajillo (prawns in garlic sauce) and it was... More

What a fun place to order a drink and get free tapas! It was fun to unwind and people watch. We went here 3 nights for happy hour and we're almost too full for dinner! The waiters were friendly and prompt. I would definitely recommend this for a stop!

Whenever we holiday in spain a favorite pass time for my wife and I is to explore the side streets of any city, town or village we visit because, if you have the time you will more often than not stumble across a shop, cafe, bar or restaurante to delight.Granada was no exception in this regard. On the penultimate night... More

Perfect food and excellent service. I would lie to recommend everyone to try the food there especially the typical desert for Granada. They are free shots as well

Salads at €7.50 are huge, so don't over order. Go for 4 between 5. Food is fine though as is service.
