We have been to Samarkanda Lebanese Restaurant twice now. The food was absolutely wonderful on both occasions - freshly cooked from scratch. The owner is a most attentive host. The Ksara Lebanese wine exceedingly good (the owner prefers the red: we prefer the rose). A really nice, centrally placed (just behind Plaza Nueva) good little restaurant. We will make this... More

A delightfully unpretentious Lebanese restaurant with great vegetarian options. We enjoyed absolutely everything we ordered. Unlike the Moroccan restaurants nearby, both lentil soup and ayran (a traditional yoghurt drink) are on the menu. In general we found it so good and such good value that we ate here twice during our five-day stay in Granada.

Excellent location in the "souk" area of Granada. The service was light on personality, but the food was heavy on flavor .. we enjoyed lunch here after a long morning of touring the Alhambra and would consider returning.

We stumbled on this Lebanese restaurant and boy were we surprised at how delicious everything was. The fattoush salad and shish tawouk, veggie cream soup etc were all absolutely amazing. Family recipes, wife is the chef. Too bad we discovered it so late in our stay. Not far from the Plaza Nueva. Well worth your effort!!

We decided on samananda since there was more good than bad reviews. First let me start on he apps Tabouil was extremely fresh and delicious Hamara was fantastic!!! On to the mains The kofta... More

Delicious set meal of falafel, pita & hummus, stuffed vine leaves and tabbouleh to start followed by lamb kebab with rice. Every mouthful was delicious and the inclusive Lebanese wine was a very pleasant accompaniment. An unexpected extra touch was the complementary coffee offered after the meal. Definitely worth a visit if you a looking for an alternative to traditional... More

We enjoyed some fresh and tasty treats after a long day in the hot Granada. Everything we ordered was delicious, freshly made, and for lack of better words awesome. We were tempted to ask for more to take home with us. The service was quick and efficient. Vast selection of vegetarian dishes. We would definitely come back if in Granada.
