I made dinner reservations for 2 the night before, so we were thrilled to arrive shortly after sunset and have a table waiting for us with a front-row view of the Alhambra. I had read about the incredible views from this charming carmen and my expectations were exceeded. However, the warm, engaging staff and delicious meal were the real highlight... More

After spending a couple hours watching the sun set from the Mirador San Nicolas, we walked a couple minutes to Carmen Mirador de Aixa for our 8:30 pm reservation. This is also when the restaurant opens. We were led to a table on their ample terrace with an unimpeded view of the Alhambra. It was a bit chilly, but they... More

Surely one of the world's great sights has to be watching the sun go down with its last rays causing the magnificent Alhambra to almost glow and the view of this is unrivalled from Carmen Mirador de Aixa. Sometimes restaurants with such a stunning location do not concentrate on either the quality of their food nor the level of service... More

Serendipity happens when you least expect it. Took a while to actually find but so pleased it was recommended to us for our last evening in Granada. Magic. Open terrace (with patio heaters as necessary) overlooking the floodlit Alhambra across the valley. Disappointment at not being at the front of the patio was soon overcome as we sat beside a...

OMG! This restaurant is a 10 in EVERYTHING! Located in the Mirador de San Nicolas area this is THE place not to miss. The view of the La Alhambra is stunning, the food is even better. Fine dining with a menu that embraces the Mediterranean cuisine in a gourmet and creative way. The wine pairing is excellent and the service... More

First, you cannot find a better place to overlook the Alhambra as darkness falls and the lights appear on the outer walls across the valley. Just simply breathtaking. Second, the staff and the menu were excellent.

We walked down from Mirador de San Nicolas to get to the restaurant, and it took us a few minutes to figure out how to get there, but when we did, the view inside the doors took our breath away. It really is a magical spot; with our reservation (we called in advance) we were seated at an outdoor table... More

Appaling. Came here for the view which is stunning but ruined by a petulant maitre D' who the owners really must send on a customer care course. We had a reservation and on arrival and were shown to our table, we noticed one closer to the front and the view and asked if we could be moved but were told... More
