Among their specialties, we can highlight the 70º cod with light pepper cream or the black fideuá casserole with prawns. If you want to try the meat, we recommend the veal fillet with fresh foie, Pedro Ximenez sauce and baby potatoes. We recommend you to participate in our guided tours to the Cathedral of Granada and to the quarters of Albaicin and Sacramonte.

We recommend that you go to the restaurant when the sun goes down and taste the seaweed cannelloni or the traditional Andalusian salmorejo.
Finally, we would like to recommend the Saffron Route Restaurant, which is located at the foot of the Alhambra right on the banks of the Darro. It is the only restaurant with the best views of the Alhambra, but it does not have a terrace to enjoy it.
It is a restaurant whose decoration is quite modern, but its food is a mixture of Andalusian, Spanish, Arab and even international dishes. We would like to highlight the cous-cous, paella or duck magret.
