If You don't have family in Spain... don't worry Francisco will treat You like one of ralatives and feed You as a king! You will be able to listen to pleanty stories about regional food and culture and isn't it what we are travelling for? Thank You Francisco from Filip & Martyna & Matylda & Pedro Ximenez , the toreador ;)

We found out about Francisco and La Olive through fellow travellers and were happy to get a spot on short notice. Francisco provides an unique tasting menu. With each of the 5 wines, you experience 3 courses of simply prepared dishes with local ingredients. So that is 18 different dishes, all superb. Francisco and his assistant provide you with an evening filled with good food, good drink, many interesting stories. You don’t want to leave and wish you were coming back the next night. Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening in this quaint spot wit Francisco!

A truly wonderful and intimate prix fixe dinner with wine pairing prepared by Francisco at his store. I went with my sister, mother and father and we were the only table booked for the evening so were lucky enough to have him all to ourselves. Francisco explained each wine and dish, and how they related to Andalusian culture - everything was INCREDIBLE. I can't recommend this experience more. Unique, charming and delicious! Reserve a table via phone or email.

This is small, it looks like someone's office or a store when you walk in, but inside you will find Francisco, or Paco to his friends...this is an ABSLOUTELY, POSITIVELY the BEST Food EXPERIENCE you will have in Andalusia!!!

we had 15 no maybe 17 courses....who cares, each one was fabulous, each one fresh, and small enough to enjoy and not feel you have had too much

if you are a value seeker go to Good Burger, BUT if you want an REAL FOOD experience this is the place to go....book in advance on line, cash only....come with a great attitude...do not expect Michelin one or three star bowing and scraping....we have done that...this is wonderful...this is real food, lovingly prepared...and fun!!!....

Great food in a private, unique setting. Francisco was an amazing host and prepared terrific food and wine pairings while entertaining his guests at the same time! Exceeded our expectations. Definitely the highlight of our eating experiences in Andalusia. Each course was generous and expertly prepared. Francisco very graciously catered the evening to accommodate our culinary needs (gluten free, shellfish allergy). Unique setting in a small shop with limited numbers of tables (we ate with just one other couple on this evening). Must do in Granada!!
