Very professional service and amazing food. Un buen ambiente! Bar tapas are really good and so too are the main dishes - go to Elche, visit the Palmeral and have a walk in the park and then finish off with a wonderful lunch or dinner at El Granaino - you will not regret it.

Tapas at a different level. The food was amazing. We had oysters served on ice with a glass a cava. On entry we were given a ceramic mug of soup as it was winter. Steak sandwich, the steaks was thick & cooked to perfection. These were just a few of the dishes ordered. The best way to experience this is... More

Got a large Solomillo, great sauce and most of all the Gamba in Garlic was amazing...;O) The atmosphere outside is nice even though the restaurant is a little secluded positioned.

Went for tapas in the bar area. Waiter was helpfull and a gentleman. Opportunity for small dishes so could taste a lot of different food. Fresh ingredients and fresh fish/shrimps, many ingredients placed behind the bar so you could watch everything. Nice atmosphere and very authentic. I recommend this place.

That's quite difficult to find the right words to express our satisfaction and gratitude of this restaurant! We chose warm salad with octopus and shrimps, grilled angus beef and cod fish with tomato sauce. Everything was perfect! Also the staff made special lunch for our one-year old baby and she was pleased and happy! We will definitely return shortly ;)

This historic place is both restaurant and tapas bar. I recommend the tapas bar! The bar is set high for the quality and freshness of the products. It is gastronomy, passion and tradition! If ever in Elche, do yourself a favor and visit this place!
