Its a hard to beat combination for a bar, this place is on a corner with Elvira #33. Nice waiters and waitresses, the been is cold and cheap, I enjoyed the tapas which they seem to bring with each drink ordered.

Grabbed wine and a tapa. Quick service and hummus good. Very affordable. Looked at the plates coming out to other tables and it all looked a little like ball-game food, not healthy or higher end tapad... Small veggie menu so would not characterize as particularly...More

Nice honest bar ideal for a snack/small lunch. Free tapas with each drink starting at 2€ each. Extra tapas only 1.50€ not a lot of choice but for the price I can’t complain!

A nice little bar with lots of good food with big portions! We had what we would usually buy in a tapas bar, the portions were double what we would usually get and for the same price. A good place for a quick lunch

La Buena Vida is a great place! It is small and friendly. My friends and I loved to go here when we lived in Granada. The tinto de verano and the bacon con tomate were my favorites! It's a little off the beaten path so...More

We kind of stumbled across this place by accident and began regretting it as soon as we sat down. It's cheap, but for the quality of food it's quite disappointing. I've had much better tapas in Granada for the same price. The menu is a...More

Doesn't have the curb appeal of some of the surrounding restaurants but stopped as it was recommended in our guide book. Don't order from the menu! Buy a drink and you get a free tapas and chips. We had a beer and a glass of...More
