We were staying at the Alhambra Palace Hotel and after a long journey wanted somewhere near by to eat on our first evening. The hotel staff suggested the Carmen de San Miguel. It appealed particularly as it was on the same level as the hotel and just along the lane. We didn't feel like walking back down into Granada city centre.
We got there at 7.30, just as it was opening and were the first customers so got the choice of tables. We were shown to a table with an amazing panoramic view over Granada below us. We were served our delicious complementary olives and bread whilst we considered the menu. Our wine, rather nicely we thought, was left on a side table near us rather than on the table and a waiter would appear and top our glasses up at the right moment.
Due to travel fatigue and the presence of bread and olives we decided to order main and pudding. However they bought us a starter each, free of charge! It was pretty quiet that night and maybe they needed using but I'd like to think it was honeymoon magic. Anyway, the meat wrapped in pastry was delicate and delicious. All the food was in fact delicious, perfect balances of flavours and quantities. The staff were friendly and helpful in suggestions from the menu and all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
