Outdoor restaurant offering plates of simple food such as: Broad beans with ham, dressed tomatoes, fried goat, meat in meat sauce, chips, eggs. Click on the Spanish version to see the Spanish translations.
This is an old fashioned family run restaurant offering a very simple selection of food at very good prices. The best part of the restaurant is the open air terrace. More chairs and tables are added according to demand and there is shading from the sun. There is ample parking.
If you want a very authentic non touristy restaurant with a nice relaxing atmosphere sitting in the sun this is it. There is no printed menu and you have to order in Spanish. If you don't speak Spanish just order this for 3 or 4 people: "un plato de habas con jamon, patatas fritas, tomates aliņados y carne en salsa."

|I have lived in Granada for 19 years and this is one of my favourite restaurants. I have the economic resources to go to more expensive places but to me this place is ideal. The menu is fairly small so all the dishes have been made for years by the cook and it is possible to achieve perfection every time. Some of the produce is actually grown next to the restaurant. There is a nothing better than some excellent home grown tomatoes cut into chunks, drizzled with best quality olive oil with a sprinkle of fresh thyme and a twist of salt. It won't be long before somone offers the family megabucks to buy the land and convert it into some awful flats I just hope it doesn't happen soon. The coffee is no good in this restaurant. For a coffee walk down to the Mirador de San Nicolas and have a coffee at one of the bars there. Avoid this place on very busy Sundays, there is a sudden rush of people and they can't cope. Go in midweek or on a Saturday when it is really peaceful.||
