“Fabulous La Fabula”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Spent two memorable hours with outstanding service and delicious food at La Fabula. Surprising complimentary appetizers from the chef: small tidbits of beautifully presented and unusual like fish eggs on seaweed crisp, small bits of pork on a corn chip, egg made of cheese, to name a few; next three sweet bits of watermelon with a light teriyaki sauce;and then some amazing baby asparagus with ham and potato purée.The 2 starters we ordered were delicious mushrooms with onions and the other scallop risotto. For entrees, one of us had the grouper and potato purée - yummy and the other three ordered the John dory and al dente tagliatelle with garlic- delicious. We were too full to order dessert but was presented with a tray of tiny chocolates, and other sweets-another chef's surprise! The service was incredible, the menu was in Spanish and we were told no English menu but "I'll translate" -very patiently and very detailed. There were 2 to 4 wait staff setting the silverware -spinning-spoons-placing plates or serving dishes. Very courteous-choreographed movements. We were treated royally although very underdressed. A memorable evening at fabulous La Fabula!

“Tries hard,”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Nice location, attentive staff and a lot of effort to provide a wow factor was slightly let down by the food. There was nothing wrong with it just didn't match the overall impression the restaurant was trying to make and at the price it really should have

“Fabulous food with twirling spoon service!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The food was extraordinary. Michelin quality and finesse but the service puts this restaurant over the top. For instance, when new silverware is put on the table it is done with two waiters placing a spoon in the fork in the table, then twirling them around together. The wine list features excellent local choices. Fish was particularly memorable.

“Fabulous La Fábula”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We ate here a week ago for my birthday and it was excellent. We had the taster menu along with the paired wines which was very good value for money.
The attention to detail and the beautiful presentation of the food was perfect. We had two waiters to serve us both, placing dishes, lifting cloches etc all at the same time. Laying down a spoon upside down and twirling it around so it faced the correct way was even done together.
You can read more about our experience at livelifelovecake dot com. We enjoyed a variety of dishes, some of course we would not naturally order so the tasting menu is a good idea to try something new and be a little adventurous.
If I ever go to Granada again - and I hope I do as it was a lovely city - then I would love to return to La Fábula.
Two hours previous to our booking we had sat in the lovely garden relaxing with a glass of wine.
