My favourite restaurants in Granada

My journey in Granada is unfortunately over, but it is still time to talk about the last restaurants I enjoyed before narrating my other adventures (Morocco, Barcelona, Cordoba…). Of course you can still find the recap page of these restaurants. I thought an article was a good idea to finish the circle before discovering new addresses!


Puerta de syria , Calle Elvira, 56

I discovered this restaurant during a friend’s birthday dinner. Near Plaza Nueva, the Syrian restaurant is in the town’s centre, you can’t miss it. It’s very cheap and it allows alternatives for everyone: omni, vegetarian, vegan… I only advise you to go early to have the chance to taste the hummus, that is out of stock quickly. Bonus points: falafels are so thick that only one is enough to end your hunger (or to chock you)

Eco de leite,  Calle Santa Escolástica,1

Perfect during heat waves, Eco de leite is a bit more far away from the usual touristic neighborhood but still within the center. Ice creams are not more expensive that everywhere else but are organic and some are even vegan. For the food lovers! Bonus point: a refreshing choice of flavors.

Noodlerest, Calle Principe, 4

A really good surprise for me as I am a big fan of Asian restaurants. Spanish people are not really fond of that type of food from what I see. I discovered Noodlerest walking in small streets near the city center. They take care of you: you choose your own menu from different features, you can choose vegetarian or vegan alternatives. Bonus point: the noodles box are a “window dressing”, as they seem small and expensive for the quantity but can fit noodles for two.

Olivava, Camino Nuevo de San Nicolás, 13,

A good discovery on the way to (or back from) the mirador San Nicolas when you need a snack. You can choose vegetarian and vegan options for juices, avocado wraps or south-flavored salted pies. You can also find local and organic products: olive oil, beers etc. Near that place you can find La Talega (Plazuela San Miguel Bajo 9) a local and organic shop with vegan ice creams! Bonus point: I discovered there that Spanish pisto doesn’t mean pesto but Ratatouille!

Muglia Indian restaurant, Calle Joaquin Costa 4

I tested that one on my own birthday’s lunch. There are two of these in the center, you can choose! They have affordable prices and huge portions (especially the naans, be careful it’s way bigger than the one they give you in France!) so it’s difficult to finish everything. The staff wasn’t that nice but everyone can have a bad day. Bonus point: the naans and the flock of offered sauces.

La Finca Coffee, Calle Colegio Catalino, 3

A nice discovery at the end of my journey. In a modern and minimalist style, La Fince offers cakes and beverages, with vegan alternative with almond and soy milk. We can drink hot chocolates! Bonus points: the hipster vibe and goodies for coffee addicts, such as totebags.

Patio de los perfumes, Carrera del Darro, 5

A very touristic and classical tea house that offers tea and other delights near Plaza Nueva. The decoration is its main attractive trait. Bonus points: Sweets offered with the ordered tea.
