“Should be a top 3 fine dining restaurant in Granada...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

I had dinner with a couple of local friends that took me out to a place they loved. They have pretty refined taste so don't expect a simple rustic tavern. This is a very modern minimilastic restaurant on the top floor of a museum (no views of the Alhambra). I have to say walking in after following the holy week festivities I immediately felt underdressed. Not in a bad way, the place is just stunning and I was wearing jeans...

The food was very good with a clear attention to detail; truly fine cuisine (probably short of Michelin star quality but I would not have been shocked if they had one star). The prices didn't feel too high for the place and te service was attentive and always present. The only thing that one may criticize is the somewhat limited wine selection. They had just a few bottles that were in display in the middle of the restaurant (very nicely I must say) but in all they maybe had 50 bottles with a limited selection (they didn't even have a wine menu which I found odd).

Wine deceptions aside the place was a very pleasant surprise. I had been to several more highly rated places in Granada that are not even in the same league as this place so had somewhat lost hope. In all honesty in the title I mention that this should be in the top 3...but I still have to come across the other two contenders...for the moment this is by far the most elegant, refined place I have been in Granada. Definately a place to visit!

“Just beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2012 via mobile

Fantastic value nd wonderful service for such a beautiful establishment! The view is gorgeous and Danny the maitre'd is incredible and guides you every step of the way. The tasting menu is only 55€ and is 7 courses of gorgeous morsels. You still walk away satisfied and the spacing of the degustation is impeccable. First class and great wine. Xxxx
