Top 10 restaurants in Granada, Spain

July 24, 2017 Cedrick Jardin

The Alhambra citadel of Granada is one of the most famous buildings in Spain: a Moorish fortress with grand archways and delicate ornamental mosaics. Step backwards in time as you wind through the ascending cobblestone streets of Albayzin. You’ll be rewarded with beautiful views from the Mirador San Nicolas. Granada’s nightlife is vibrant and varied, thanks in part to its student population. Hit the bars of Calle Elvira or, for a quieter outing, the traditional tea rooms of La Calle de Las Teterias.

La Oliva

Reviewed By Gemalem - London, United Kingdom

We absolutely loved our meal at La Oliva, and cannot recommend this experience enough. A huge tasting menu with five accompanying wines, all for €38 each. There were only three parties in the room when we visited, including ourselves, and Fransisco took great care to describe everything he served, and to tell us how each dish was created and which areas of Andalucia the ingredients came from. We spent about two hours there, and came our absolutely stuffed!
Booking is essential, as this is not a restaurant as such - they only serve their tasting menu, by appointment only. We emailed Fransisco with the dates that we were visiting Granada, and he let us know when he could fit us in. I would strongly advise doing the same, as this is a meal not to be missed!

iViva Maria!

Open from Monday to Friday (from 13:00 to 16:30 and from 19:00 to 21:30). Offers a wide selection of authentic and delicious Italian food, desserts, wines and coffe. Everyday Maria starts cooking very early in the morning her exquisite recipes, including the fresh pasta sheets for the best lasagnas and the focaccia that accompanies every dish.This cosy local has a table for four people, another one for two, and two bars. Is the ideal place to eat with friends or alone. Maria never stops searching new recipes typical of the best Italian tradition. And every day, you can try the special menu: portion of vegetable quiche, drink and dessert (7.90 €). You can also enjoy the excellent lasagnas (with meat or vegetables).Maria recommends to arrive early in order to have a look at the shop window with all the dishes and desserts of the day.

Visited Viva Maria tonight after Reading reviews! Excellent choice. Owner explained menu for me in English. Had Mediterranean lasagne with leeks, courgettes etc followed by Orange and almond cake. Both delicious accompanied by a couple of glasses of red wine. Very reasonably priced. Lovely friendly service. Shall be back!

La Pajuana

Reviewed By TravelsofCorina - Orlando, Florida

Best Tapas I've had since living in Spain. What is great about the tapas is the variety. From Morracan to Asian tapas and local cuisine, they were all tasty and authentic. The portions were great too. For ever drink purchased you get one tapa per person free and you can then order an extra one for €1.20. We had 3 drinks each resulting in 6 different delicious tapas all €24.20... Outstanding! I also recommend getting there before it opens because it will get packed! Highly recommended! Big shout out to one of the staff members Jorge he was so kind!

Meson el Cordobes de Jose Peregrina

Reviewed By Samantha297 - New York City, New York

Think about a banquet... Now, add Spanish wine and brandy. This is the place... We ate like kings, were treated likewise and in the end... 67 euros. If i were to eat this in NYC, I would pay like 400 USD and would receive a terrible service. THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO. I loved it and would go back in a heartbeat. The staff were so friendly... Patient, explaining everything. PERFECT!

The italian cuisine in Granada. Mozzarelle, burrate, ricotta handmade. Fresh pasta, lasagna, wine and typical italian products

Reviewed By Baizi-A - Brussels, Belgium

I passed to Granada for one day trip to visit Alhambra, at the end of the day i felt that im cravings to eat Italian dishes, as always i got to trip advisor app and i searched for Italian place i got that tiny small restaurant it shows it deserve to give it a shot and try.
Food was perfect.
Place was clean and well organized.
Owners are very friendly and we chatted for 10 minutes.
Just keep in attention that there is two small tables in the resturant each table for 3 person, and if you are more than 3 grab your meals and eat it outdoor while your enjoying lovely Granada.

La Tuttoria

Reviewed By StevenHook - Southampton, United Kingdom

Our first visit to this Italian restaurant was a real treat the food and service was great and all at a reasonable price. We were only having salmon linguini but were given some fresh bread sticks with a melted cheese dip which was delicious. The pasta was excellent followed by a super chocolate brownie. The only issue is on our second visit the TVs were up at full volume for the football and conversation was nearly impossible.

Reviewed By Loriinpa - Pittsburgh

This restaurant deserves its number one ranking. This was one of our highlights to our trip to Spain. Make Reservations early. Many people were turned away because the restaurant was full.
The meal was delicious. Probably the best appetizers I ever had. Amazing risotto and my apple and goat cheese appetizer was beautiful and delicious. Our entrees were a feast for the eyes and stomach. There is so much attention to detail in the preparation and presentation. For dessert we chose the pineapple and ice cream - a perfect end to a perfect meal.
