After getting lost in the Albaizin neighborhood, we finally found our way to the Mirador San Nicholas. As luck would have it, the restaurant I booked for dinner -- El Agua -- was a few staircases below it. Exhausted and thirsty, we dragged ourselves to our table on the balcony overlooking the Alhambra. I'd booked the table for 8pm so we could watch as the scenery went from daylight to evening. It was a spectacular view.
The restaurant specializes in fondue, which was different than the traditional Spanish food we'd been eating. The menu was variations of cheese and meat fondues, which each menu item serving two people for about 22 EUR. The four of us shared an order of the chicken fondue and the pork fondue. The waiter brought out two pots of boiling oil, told us how long to cook the meats and then left us to enjoy it. He also brought us some cubes of bread, which was very tasty when fried in the boiling oil. And, we were given six different dipping sauces to try. Absolutely delicious.
For dessert, we tried the chocolate fondue, which was served with cookies, marshmallows and all kinds of fruit. Again, delicious. I wish I could have licked the pot!
The restaurant doesn't have much on the menu beyond fondue, so keep that in mind if you decide to go. But we had a wonderful time there and the view is amazing. I highly recommend.
