Restaurants in Granada

Granada has a good array of restaurants, with many of the most atmospheric tucked away along the narrow lanes of the Albaicín.

The restaurants in Granada below have been grouped into three different pricing categories:
Expensive (over €40)
Moderate (€20 to €40)
Cheap (up to €20)

These prices are for a three-course meal for one, with half a bottle of house wine or equivalent, tax and service included.



Cuisine: Seafood

Making use of the short hop to the Mediterranean, Cunini is a first-rate seafood restaurant that gives hungry patrons the choice of delicious tapas at its bar or a full meal in its restaurant. The wood-panelled dining room is a cosy retreat in colder weather, but there are outdoor tables overlooking the plaza as well.

Address: , Plaza Pescadería 14, Granada, 18001
Telephone: +34 958 250 777.

Restaurante Arrayanes

Cuisine: Moroccan

Moroccan in both decor and cuisine, Restaurante Arrayanes provides a delicious taste of North Africa with an atmosphere to boot. Suitably close to the alternative scene of Calle Caldereria Nueva, they don't serve alcohol here, but the food is so good that you won't miss it.

Address: Albaicín, Cuesta Marañas 4, Granada, 18010
Telephone: +34 958 228 401.

Terraza Las Tomasas

Cuisine: Traditional

Serving traditional Granada food with some creative touches, this fine Albaicín restaurant is already one of the best eateries in the area – and that's without mentioning its truly special views of the Alhambra. Book a seat on the terrace and don't miss the crab soup with mint or the veal with black pepper sauce and three mustards.

Address: Albaicín, Carril de San Agustín 10, Granada, 18010
Telephone: +34 958 224 108.


El Huerto de Juan Ranos

Cuisine: Andalucian

Set in a villa with a garden in front of the Alhambra, this restaurant serves up traditional Andalucian cuisine such as partridge and other dishes of Magrebi origin, all capped with amazing views. The upstairs terraces serves lighter fare, and the downstairs dining room is more formal.

Address: , Calle Atarazana Vieja 6, Granada, 18010
Telephone: +34 958 286 925.

Meson el Cordobes

Cuisine: Mediterranean

The effusively friendly proprietor, scrumptious but unpretentious Mediterranean-style food and buzzy ambience help to make Meson el Cordobesone of the best casual dining options in the city. The seafood medley and the exquisitely tender beef fillets are particularly worth sampling.

Address: , Calle del Artesano Molero 5, Granada, 18004
Telephone: +34 958 208 008.

Mesón El Trillo

Cuisine: Innovative

El Trillo is a relaxed spot in an old carmen (an old Albaicín house with walled garden) with an outside space that's perfect for dining in warmer weather. Unusually for Granada, it serves food with a Basque twist, including some imaginative vegetarian dishes.

Address: Albaicín, Callejón Aljibe del Trillo 3, Granada, 18010
Telephone: +34 958 225 182.


Casa Juanillo

Cuisine: Spanish

The food at this simple, rustic eatery is good, but what makes it really stands out is the view. Sit on the terrace to enjoy glorious vistas over the Alhambra while tucking into traditional Andalucían fare. Salads, fried fish, seafood and soups dominate the menu.

Address: , Camino del Sacromonte 83, Granada, 18010
Telephone: +34 958 223 094.

Los Diamantes

Cuisine: Tapas

Join the locals crammed into this small but atmospheric bar for the best seafood tapas in town. There are several branches in Granada, but this is the original and best. Service is efficient, but you may need to queue unless you arrive at opening time. Culinary highlights include seafood, sherry-soaked clams and tempura aubergine.

Address: , Calle Nevas 28, ,
Telephone: +34 958 227 070.

Via Colon

Cuisine: Tapas

Stop here if you're in need of a quick fix. Service may not be the friendliest but the tapas will keep you going until the evening. Paella and moussaka are the in-house specialities, but this neat little local's café is best known for its breakfasts: think giant croissants and excellent coffee.

Address: , Calle Gran Via Colon, 13, Granada, 18001
Telephone: +34 958 220 752.
