    The view and the service is excellent. The food was average. We’ve had so much wonderful Spanish food in this town, and this was not up to those standards. We ordered a wide range of dishes, the dish we would recommend is the oxtail stew. The waitstaff was very nice.

    A lot of reviews said this restaurant is overpriced, but we found the prices to be on target with the other menus in the Albacin area. Food was good, view was amazing! We went around sunset.

    Very friendly service. A view that rivals any. Food and drinks reasonably priced and well prepared particularly in light of the location. Go there for drinks or dinner. You won’t regret it.

    Lovely view and very pleasant staff!! The food, however, was somewhat disappointing and overpriced. I felt very silly spending 7 euros on a small empanada in a city known for it's free tapas.

    Excellent menu with great selections. The setting is a beautiful view of the Alhambra. Service was friendly and helpful - not rushed even on a holiday. Paella wAs excellent as were the chicken dishes. Very reasonable and great atmosphere !

    The food here was very delicious. But it comes at a price. Compared to other locations it is relatively expensive. However, the view is to die for. We watched the alhambra change colours as the sun set. Our dinner was a breathtaking experience that very well justified the elivated prices. Go here an hour or half our before sun set. We booked a table for two in advance and were seated next to the window.

    Good food with a great view of the Alhambra. We sat in the indoor section (there is an outdoor terrace), but the windows are large and were opened.
