Great middle eastern food. Falafel and eggplant were the highlights - but the hummus, couscous, shawarma, cauliflower, filo w/ chicken were all sooooo good! Really good flavours. Super busy place. The service is somehow quite good despite being under-staffed and over populated! Cold beer, good sangria - definitely check this tapas restaurant out! Tapas are all €1.60. They do 1L... More

This is the best tapas bar of Granada. We loved the place and the dishes were excellent. They have a very good deal : a bottle of wine + 8 tapas for 16 euros. We highly recommend this place!!!

Been coming here for a while and it is without a doubt the best tapas place in Granada when you want a break from tortilla, chorizo and jamón. The tapas are mouth watering treats with an Arab theme. The falafel is out of this world, the hummus devine and all the other tapas are great as well. The owner is... More

Ordered a bottle of wine and... More

We went around 2pm on a weekday. They have an English menu which was useful. Delicious falafel and as several reviews say a nice change from the usual menus. I'd definitely recommend it if you want a small place with atmosphere and an interesting menu.

Great inexpensive tapas. Made a nice change from the usual. It's a great atmosphere but you need to get there before 8.30 if you want a seat as it can get really busy. Service is good considering it's down to one guy.

The North African tapas served here were some of the best we had in Granada. Hummus, cauliflower, eggplant, falafel, fideos... it was all delicious, and a nice change of pace from the more typically Spanish food we ate everywhere else.

Small and very welcoming restaurant in the city centre. Offers a great mix of oriental tapas of very good quality and taste at very affordable prices including beer or wine. Would definitely recommend it for a change to spanish cuisine.
