Lonely Planet review

Up in the Albayzín, this chic but cosy neighbourhood restaurant is no bigger than a shoebox but serves from breakfast right through to the evening. Chatty staff at the tiny marble bar can point out some of the highlights of the creative menu (such as prawns with tequila and honey). But even the simple items, like the tortilla, are done with special care. It’s a good place to get out of the sun and rest up, especially if you are hiking up from Plaza Nueva.
