We really enjoyed our evening at Ruth del Azafran. Having arrived early (for Spain standards) at 7pm and luckily seated by the large window so we could enjoy the view of the lit up Alhambra buildings on the hilltop above, we decided to go for the €28 set menu (min. Two persons). We were all super pleased with our choice... More

Nice place to have dinner in Granada. Located by the river in the Paseo de los Tristes, tables by the window have the imposing sight of the Alhambra above. Smart restaurant, service friendly & efficient, and the food good. If you're going for dessert, have the selection of desserts ... mmmm!!!

This restaurant must have the best view of the Alhambra in Granada! As you eat you look out onto the hill opposite and (at night) the Alhambra is lit up and looks fantastic. The restaurant looks modern compared with the rest of the Albayzin area and offers a very nice selection of local food - I had a wonderful Morrocan... More

This place is uncommon to the most restaurants I tried in Spain. The quality of food, even though excellent, is limited in the choice and the very same quantity is below the average. But the outcome of each dish is well balanced and, at the end, you enjoy every single bite. In sum, a spot to try, possibly in the... More

My son were so excited about going to this restaurant. It didn't disappoint, we both had soups. Shared the lamb couscous and the mushroom risotto. Food was flavorful, staff attentive, and a beautiful setting look at the Alhambra. Go an enjoy a fabulous place.

We enjoyed a massive tasting menu. Everything was really fantastic - and we are greedy with high standards! The dessert platter was a bit much. Good service and lovely food with nice atmosphere.

At the foot of The Alhambra one can find the restaurant Ruta del Azafran. It is in the
incomparable setting of the Paseo de los Tristes right in the Albaicin, which is perfect
for the traveller that loves to soak up history.
Our kitchen, surrounded by this extraordinary scenery, can be found in the same mix of
cultures alternating between Arab flavors, international foods and the traditional tastes
from Andalucia. It's worth to mention our Tuna Tataki, the Cous-Cous (chicken, lamb
or vegetable), Duck Magret, Moorish Pie and also undoubtedly our homemade desserts.
All of this accompanied by the best local wines, cavas from the Alpujarra mountains
and a special selection of Rioja and Ribera del Duero wines.
The restaurant Ruta del Azafran offers different menus for groups that are carefully put
together by our chef to provide the most exquisite flavors.
All of our meats are Halal and we are ready to accept any request with respect to this.
We have a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Our kitchen professionals who make up a highly qualified team assemble all of the
dishes in the restaurant.
We invite you to visit us: to enjoy the surroundings and taste our exquisite dishes.
