“The ignorance and arrogance of the staff are matched only by their rip-off mentality”

We arrived in the city at lunchtime on a Saturday and this restaurant was the first we could find that had spare tables. It soon became apparent why.

As we sat down, the waiter approached and we tried to order some drinks. He told us in no uncertain terms that this wasn't possible and that we should go elsewhere if we just wanted drinks. I asked him if they were doing food and his reply was a curt "yes, of course we do". I told him we wanted food and drinks but that we wanted drinks first. He grunted and took our drinks order. No apology from him for his presumptions ignorance. Had there been other restaurants with free tables nearby we would have left at this point, but unfortunately there weren't.

We placed an order for two dishes: a plate of cheese slices and a plate of sliced tomatoes with a sprinkling of tuna. Each dish was listed at a hefty €9.50 each, but hey, these are city prices and we were tired and hungry.

The bill arrived and we were actually charged €10.50 for each dish. When I queried this with the same arrogant waiter, he grunted "if you read the small print on the menu, we charge one euro extra per dish for bringing the food out to you". I took our change, left no tip and told them they were ripping people off.

Not a good introduction or advert for Granada tourism. Avoid this place.

My wife and I did a little tapas bar hopping one night and came across Taberna Granados by accident. What an accident. Best darn vermouth de la casa on the planet. And the albondigas? My mouth is watering now just thinking about it. Located on a lively corner across from the Plaza del Humilladero. Awesome staff. Very friendly. Don't hesitate.

We called in here two nights running when we were stay at the Vincci hotel next door.
It's all you would expect from a charming little Tapa's bar, unpretentious, authentic and a sense of history to it. The Tapa's were excellent and they keep serving more free Tapa's with every round of drinks. (Eventually had to tell them to stop the extra Tapa's as we were full). !!!
The wine and food are all very reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly and happy. All makes for a good night.
Difficult to drag yourself away as you feel as though your leaving a house party.....
Will most certainly return when next back in Granada.

This bar is a staple on the bar scene in Granada, and from what I gather has been in the city for a very long time.
The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the food tastes great (its homemade by the mother).
The tapas always taste great (although on the small side).
Highly recommend a visit to this place.
