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.

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.

The restaurant has an amazing view of Alhambra and the food was good. The staff and service was great. Be aware, food service is only inside, while drinks are served on the open air patio.
One enormous issue is the online reservation was not acknowledged. They do NOT accept online bookings and while they graciously accommodated us, other patrons must be aware that the TripAdvisor (aka the Fork app) is not received nor honored by this restaurant. Have your Hotel conceirge book for you.
TripAdvisor - very disappointed in your application and vetting process.

The place was dirty and the food of low quality. Is a typical tourist trap and you are only paying for the view. Better to go to the bar, order a beer and enjoy the view. Go eat somewhere else.
