Everybody knows Andalusia’s gastronomic tradition, but we are going to focus on Granada. An incredible city for its culture, but also for its gastronomy and its ambience. In this article you will discover the best tapas’ bar in Granada. We will find all kinds of bars, some more picturesque, others with better “cuisine”, others with a great atmosphere and others more intimate, all different, but with a lot of charm.
Along with the gastronomy, discovering each of its main attractions is another essential thing to do if you are in this city. Therefore, we suggest you to take the guided tours in Granada or the free tour Granada, both of excellent quality to know everything about Granada.
La Sitarilla is one of the most famous and typical bars in Granada. It is in the heart of the city, in Calle San Miguel Alta (street). It is the perfect place to have a drink after a day visiting the city. Its decoration reminds us of traditional taverns with paintings on the walls and bottles of wine everywhere. It has an L-shaped bar, as well as a lounge for those who want to eat in a more relaxed atmosphere.
You can’t leave without trying the salmorejo, the callos, or the pepper-breaded chicken steak. They are high quality tapas, plentiful, but the most important thing is that they are delicious. If to all this, we add that it is very cheap with a price of 2 euros, and when you order a drink, they bring you the tapa, it is a place you must visit.
With the same dynamic as La Sitarilla, Casa Julio is a traditional Granadian bar, with a lot of personality, with the typical tiles, photos hanging on the walls and charming waiters.
This bar has the best fried fish tapas, the boquerones (anchovies) and cazón (dogfish) are the jewels in the crown. With a very fine, crispy, and not at all greasy frying that envelops the fish and melts in your mouth. A real delight. The price is still very reasonable, at 2 euros. The only thing you should bear in mind is that you can only eat at the bar as they do not have a dining room.
After a good lunch tasting one of the best tapas of the city, we suggest you to take a walk around the main attraction of Granada: The Alhambra. For this, the ideal is to opt for the Alhambra guided tour where they will show you all the corners that this monument hides.
First of all, be careful not to confuse it with another establishment called: Antiguas Bodegas Castañeda. Bodegas Castañeda stands out, above all, for its delicious traditional and totally homemade cuisine. Its decoration, as well as the menu, is very typical of Andalusia with its wooden barrels and wine bottles.
If its decoration is traditional, and its food typical, the best thing to do is to order a typical dish, and what could be more authentic from these lands than a beer or a wine with a good board of cheeses or cold meats such as ham, chorizo, or black pudding. It is also very economical, and there is usually a lot of local atmosphere. Of course, if you come to Granada, you have to make a stop to taste some of their platters.
The beer bar Minotauro is a classic in the city of Granada. It stands out for its abundant tapas, big, hearty, or whatever you want to call them, but it’s clear that they won’t leave you hungry. It is in the historic centre of the city, which creates a cultural atmosphere and a fantastic environment. In addition, we have two locations, owned by the same owner, in the city, so if one is too crowded you can always go to the other, located in Calle Imprenta (street), number 6. Also, very close to the centre.
This establishment has a wide variety of tapas, of high quality and very tasty. When you order a drink, they will bring you a tapa, but you can’t choose it, but it’s part of the charm of going out for tapas. The best thing to do is to let yourself be surprised by the wise chef; we are sure that they will leave you indifferent.
This bar offers privileged views of the Alhambra, as it is in the emblematic Albaicín neighbourhood. Due to its location, we will find a multicultural atmosphere, but still very welcoming and with a service worthy of note.
In this bar you will find a great variety of tapas, which can be considered super tapas, as they are very abundant. The tapas are made with the most traditional and delicious recipes of the city. It has a large dining room so you can enjoy your tapas in peace and quiet. We remind you that this bar is governed by the fixed tapas system for each drink they serve you a tapa.
Since you are coming to visit this place and because of the proximity, we recommend you not to leave without discovering everything that the Albaicín and Sacromonte guided tour offers. You won’t regret it!
