Having just looked at other visitors' experiences, it is clear that "we dropped your food in the kitchen" is the usual excuse at this restaurant for not bringing your order together with your table mates' orders. We dined yesterday with four people and when three of us received their main course, the fourth was told his plate had been dropped and he would have to wait. When his food did arrive it actually looked as if it had been dropped, dusted off and put on a plate again - let us hope that was not the case!

We had the dinner special. Goat cheese arugula salad, codfish, dessert. Every bite was amazing. Staff attentive and friendly. Great wine too. LOVED this experience and the view of the Alhambra cannot be beat.

We booked this restaurant over 4 weeks ago asking for a nice table by the window with views of the Alhambra.
On the day of the reservation we were phoned and asked to arrive 20 minutes after our time slot as they were busy and in order to give us a requested table needed time to prepare. We duly arrived at 20-20hours to absolute chaos. Large parties were hanging around the unmanned reception desk where no one acknowledged us until 25 minutes later when we had to strongly attract attention.
In the meantime staff were rushing around everywhere with trays of empty glasses and plates, totally ignoring ourselves and another couple. At no time while waiting were we even offered a drink. We were eventually shown upstairs, passing broken glass on the steps and offered the worst table in a corner with no window view but a hoof of a pigs leg almost touching my ear! The window seats had all been taken by large groups.

We asked to see the manageress who was dealing with a similar complaint from the other couple who had been waiting at reception. She eventually approached us but could only offer weak excuses and was frankly not interested in trying to sort out the issue for us. She even denied we were the first name in the reservations book despite us having seen that we were.

For the first time in years we walked out of a restaurant and fortunately our hotel found us another table at Carmela Restaurant where the staff were, charming, helpful, attentive and caring; everything Estrellas had failed upon. Obviously they only want to deal with large tourist groups and not couples.

The view from the Estrellas de San Nicolas is unparalleled - its upstairs windows look directly across at the Alhambra in all its illuminated glory. We were recommended to the restaurant by a local friend and she was right - it is definitely worth the journey up the narrow streets to get the view and the food. The tables at the windows are ideal for couples but we needed a little more space and sat further back but that did not inhibit the view, which was almost surreal in its splendour. The service was impeccable - very warm welcome, attentive and helpful when we asked them to swap one of the accompaniments to a main course. The prawn carpaccio was incredible, as was the goat's cheese soufflé starter. The menu provides plenty of choice - typically Spanish meat and fish dishes but very tastefully presented with a modern twist - for example the peppery red cabbage served with the suckling pig. There is also a list of house specials which make this a far more interesting and authentic dining option than many of the places aimed at tourists. We enjoyed local wine and dined at a very leisurely pace. This restaurant is open on Sunday evening, which not all restaurants in Granada are, and it serves from 7:30pm.
