- La Riviera's simple wooden interior and dim lighting give this tapas bar a warm energy that is inviting to granadino locals and visitors alike. A life-size knight statue guards a couple of animated bartenders whose jovial personalities fuel a fun, casual atmosphere. These guys are typical andaluces (Andalusians): always talking and joking around with guests and each other, they somehow find time to serve everyone at a reasonable pace and, impressively, remember which tapa you'll be enjoying next. At La Riviera, the kitchen determines the menu and serves a new tapa that corresponds with the round of drinks you order. While not exactly gourmet, the food is delicious, filling, and exemplary of traditional Andalusian favorites such as carne con tomate (stewed beef in a savory tomato sauce). Portions are generous, and you'll be fully satisfied after a few rounds. However, you'll want to keep 'em coming when you see the people next to you munching on those calamares (calamari) they got with their next round. La Riviera's low prices, authentic atmosphere, and location at the foot of historical Albaicín make it an ideal spot to begin the night and fill up on on tapas that the locals crave.
