We were in a real rush to catch a bus and the waiters were great, very understanding and fast. Besides that this was the best meal we had in the full trip to Granada, Seville and Cordoba. Jamón, Croquetas, Pulpo and Alitas de Pollo. Just perfect.

I don't usually leave bad reviews but this was by far our least favorite meal during our visit to Spain. The food was not great and the services was not great either. Our server actually very rude to the table sitting next to us. Very disappointing. Maybe this was an off night for the server and the cook. It happens.... More

V central, buzzing little restaurant - with plenty of outside seating (even on a cold March night - they have patio heaters!). Lots of locals eating here - not crowded out with tourists (like us!)... The 'racions' are generous sized. Be warned! Their Galician octopus was simply wonderful.

We had diner in the terrasse there on Saturday night. The food was delicious, served very rapidly by 2 friendly waiters, and the price was not very expensive. The location is excellent.

Checked into hotel in Plaza Nueva after Ave + Bus ride from Cordoba and took recommendation from hotel clerk for dinner; he nailed it! Scored nice table on porch and were immediately engaged by pair of young ladies from Mallorca at next table celebrating birthdays. Chupitos {shots) naturally ensued followed by an excellent dinner; the pulpo was amazing! Tender, marinated... More

The cooking was good and there was a great atmosphere in this centrally located restaurant. The food was not special but tasty and the kitchen is open outside the normal Spanish eating times.

WE never eat in this restaurant but we took our evening glasses of wine or sangria on the terrace. Nice after a warm day in Granada. EACH drink is served with a different tapa. Not to expensive.
