If you find yourself in Granada, Spain it is well worth your time to search out Totes Y Amigos Restaurant & Bar. My colleague and I popped in one night after reading about it in the NY Times and were immediately charmed by the lovely waitress. She quickly made wine suggestions (she was spot on) and told us a bit about the bar and the area.
Our food was delicious! We had a few tapas and then a goat cheese salad, which was the only salad I had during my two-week stay that was not a variation of iceberg with corn and tuna. For a main course I had the vegetable paella which was hot and zesty and just what I needed. And, it was the least expensive full meal I had in Granada.
Totes Y Amigos became an almost nightly stop for me. I can confirm that all of the wonderful comments made by others are true. If you show up by yourself you are quickly introduced around and invited to join with one group or another for drinks and conversation. This is the “Intercambio” thing that has been mentioned. Locals who are learning English come to speak with native English speakers and you get to practice your Spanish. I had some wonderful conversations with people I never would have met otherwise.
I don’t think I can recommend this place enough. It has charm, warmth, character and great food.
