The food is such a let down and the service is barely OK. This place hopes to get away with cashing in on its stunning view. The view IS breathtaking but can be had locally at a lookout for free or at the Mirador Morayma restaurant 200 metres away with better food. Expensive and just not good value.

Very disappointed in the attitude to this place. My son had requested we go here for the view and we requested a booking through their website but alas, no replies. Therefore, we decided to go early evening to get a table but we’re greeted with “have you booked” after explaining the story of trying and not receiving a reply, their response was “we only reply if we have space”. Courtesy was obviously not on their agenda or training!
With an almost empty restaurant in front of us, we suggested that they may have space for us but another brick wall. We went next door to Restaurante Thomasas and they could not do more to fit us in, as good a view of the sunset over Alhambra and superb food and above all, service and attitude. When we left restaurante Thomasas, it was still full and lively, we popped our head into this restaurante and many empty tables!
We know where we will eat next time we’re in Granada.

I checked several resources - including TripAdvisor, of course - to find the best restaurant in Granada. And, I'm so glad we agreed on Carmen Mirador. We were able to get a table on the back terrace with a wonderful view of The Alhambra (especially at night when it is lit up). We had timed our reservation to arrive in daylight but still be there for sunset and after dark. The menu offered so many wonderful-sounding choices that we decided we would each order 3 dishes. Our waitress told us very politely that that would be too much so we shared 2 appetizers and each ordered a main course. My partner ordered the lamb chops and I had the cod. Both dishes were fabulous!

It was a marvelous dinner with terrific service and an unparalleled view. A perfect evening!!

We ate here on our last night in Granada and had a stunning view of the Alhambra as the sun set. Service was excellent and the food was delicious! We got a bottle of tempranillo blanco (a local Spanish grape variety), manchego cheeses, gazpacho, and cod with jamon iberico. It was all delicious. We ended with the molten chocolate cake and the lemon raspberry sorbet. What a fantastic meal and experience!

My wife and I had dinner and everything was perfect. The view is like no where else but the service and food quality was really good. Our steaks were prepared perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant
