We had the crispy chicken salad and it was amazing. Very refreshing and tasteful.

4/5 because they don’t have a lot of vegetarian options.

I have no idea how did this place come to the top of search. It's our first night in Granada and we're so happy to have found a top tripadvisor place next to our hotel.
First of all, the deco already looks bad. LED fully lit, fake rocks in grey and purple timber ceiling. With vinyl disc table setting. Just weird.
We ordered grilled vegetables and oxtail with artichoke sauce. Grilled vegetables ended up became boiled veggies? We highly suspect that the veggies are half fresh and half frozen. Oxtail is fine but they pour in packed sauce not freshly made artichoke sauce! my goodness! We had way better Spanish food than this. Please don't trust their photos. the portion we had was way smaller.

Yes they are friendly and speak good English but we're here for food.

We can understand that our food has not pleased you but we will not allow you to tell lies about our products, because you are disrespecting our work saying that everything is false, I recommend for future opinions think before writing and hurting to a restaurant that all we want is to give the best we have with all the honesty possible

We went here our first night in Andalucia, the last evening before they closed for their holidays. I am so glad we did. It is definitely in our top three meals of the whole trip (and we’ve had some really good ones!). The waiters were welcoming, courteous and happy to let me practice my bad Spanish whilst also tactfully explaining things in near perfect English when I struggled. The food was also faultless. Lovely jamon, great tuna, a desert I didnt think we could manage but it was SO good we almost licked the plate (chocolate fondant if you’re wondering). Wine also great and at the end of the evening one of the waiters poured a liqueur for some guests who seemed to be friends of his. When we asked what it was he brought us the bottle and poured us two generous glasses which he didn’t even charge for. We payed more than the bill because it seemed such good value and service. What a start to our holiday! I hope theirs was as good as ours.

The menu ends with 'You will return', it's right, we did, and expect most others do to. It's fabulous. The restaurant is more like a shop, it's over lit, and a bit stark and lacking in ambiance, but I think this could be addressed by lowering the lights a little. The service and the food is top notch. The presentation is just masterful. The lady chef is amazing and complimented well by her front of house colleagues, they all have so much pride in the dishes that they are producing. The flavours are incredible. Make sure you go here at the beginning of your trip as you will certainly want to return and it gets booked up quickly.

Nearly didn’t get to write this review as when we arrived at 18:00, a handwritten sign said they were having a rest between 16:00 and 20:00! Fortunately for us we couldn’t find anywhere else open so duly went back at 20:00.
Greeted by super friendly staff who explained the menu - it is not a conventional menu - and offered advice re quantities to order. Their advice was spot on, husband and I sharing a ‘starter’ and then having a main. Unfortunately we had no room for a dessert, but they looked equally delicious. The flavours and presentation of the food we had was sublime. These guys are very passionate about the food they serve and it shows in the end product.
Great choice of music playing too when we were there. Thank you
