6 years ago I visited this restaurant, and it is regrettable that I never returned sooner! Still a great place to dine, great food, good service, nice ambience and all for a fair price. Location is a bit out there, however, it's worth the trip. I would definitely recommend it to others, and I look forward to going there on... More

Wonderful selection of authentic German cuisine prepared by the authentic German owner/chef. Very friendly staff. Cool ambiance. Good value. Few tourists, mostly ex-pats. They'll call you a taxi to get you home. Easy-peasy.

We stayed 2 nights in Charley's Guest House. We weren't sure what to expect because it is located outside of downtown Granada. It was about a 10 minute walk from downtown and was easy to find. We arrived in the afternoon when the restaurant was closed but we rang the bell and were greeted by Charley's wife, who was very... More

We spent at Charly's 2 nights. Charly is a very nice guy, very helpful and friendly. He just made our stay in Granada perfect. The hotel rooms are spacious and clean. The food at the restaurant is just delicious. He also organized for us some visits like a tour on the Isletas. Both the bar and the hotel are to... More

Phenomenal German food with great atmosphere. Charly is well known in Granada for his altruism. Don't miss it!

Charlies Restaurant is just amazing. Nice atmosphere, great people, good service and of course, the terrific German food and the draft beer. If you like "Maultaschen, Rostbraten, Linsen und Spätzle, etc etc." and as dessert German style cheese cake, than this is the perfect spot. Its a bit out of the town center, but the taxis are cheep and this... More

We have heard about Charlie's Restaurant since moving to Granada ... and finally took the time to go for their OctoberFest Celebration. Since it was a special event, they had a separate menu with three dinner specials, a couple appetizers and beer selections. I ordered an entree which included a Meat Spread on Bread and Potato Salad ... it was... More

Ok, you are asking for it here-it was a risk and we went with a party of 10, but there were few other patrons that night/time. Service was slow, haphazard and did not know much about the menu offerings..... The 'standard" dishes of schnitzel, etc. were competently if not elegantly executed, serving size was generous and came with appropriate sides.... More

We were looking forward to a nice authentic German meal, so we and some friends went for Oktoberfest. First, the menu was extremely limited for this event. My husband had something that was supposed to have meat, but none was to be found on the toast he received! Second, only one local Nica beer was on draft, and the German... More

If you like German food Charly’s pub & restaurant on Calle Kusterdingen is a must! If you have ever been to Germany, this restaurant will make you homesick for Germany. All evening we were listening to German music that Charly streamed online from a German radio station. The restaurant is very cozy and you are surrounded by all sorts of... More
