Our experience was like those of the other five star reviews below. Delicious food, with lots of vegetarian options for those who need a break from meat-centered tapas. The lentil soup was wonderfully flavorful. Loved the falafel and the cous cous. Clearly a family run...More

Samarkanda is a small restaurant with really good home made food. We had various Mezze's as well a chicken with rice and it was really delicious. If you see the restaurant first of all you would probably not really decide eating there but we have...More

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.
