Lonely planet and our Dutch 100% Andalucía book both suggested this place. Ratings here on TripAdvisor made us decide to go. Nice location, but food (couscous chicken tajine and couscous lamb tajine) was flat and tasteless. Meat seemed to be a heated prefab ingredient. Gazpacho...More

This restaurant is perfectly located, along a popular narrow road in Granada and with a view of Alhambra’s outside walls. However, the food is average at best. The location and the good service by the staff members are the two main reasons I gave this...More

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.
