This foodie is impressed! Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life. The place was creative, welcoming, unpretentious, and clearly passionate about food and wine. Each course showcased unique combinations of layered flavors, textures, and cooking methods, but always with an emphasis on quality ingredients. Our meal easily should have cost 3x the amount. The host and his wife, both incredible chefs, know their stuff. I only wish we could’ve dined with them as well! Fellow foodies: do not miss this!

We took our grandson, studying in Granada this semester, and our son, here for a special dinner and we were not disappointed. We were able to secure a reservation, thanks to the kindness of the owner, despite the fact the city was crowded with people coming here for The Samanta Santa festivities during Holy Week.
Rather than be duplicative of the other positive comments, which are all very accurate, let me just say that you do not want to leave Granada without trying to make a reservation here for dinner. Splendid from start to finish, this creative menu is worth trying.

The place looks like any other restaurant - except that to eat you better do a reservation before, or you will not enter. The menu card is not big. But then it starts: EVERY dish is just spectacular. I don't know how they do it, but food just melts in your mouth. We had risotto with mushroom - very intensive, deep flavour. Oriental noodles with chicken and coconut milk and duck with pineapple are just a poetry. Top of that the manager is a very nice, qualified guy who knows his dishes and can answer any question.
