Can't squeeze in a trip to Marrakech? Arrayanes serves some of the best Moroccan cuisine in Granada. It's no surprise that this little piece of Northern Africa can be found at the foot of Granada's Albayzín (old Moorish district). Step into another world as you walk into a dining room decorated with azulejo
(ceramic tiles), beautiful tapestries, and warm, romantic lighting. All food is halal, and the chef uses exotic spices from the Maghrebi regions of Northern Africa and the best ingredients from local markets. Specialties include tajines
(braised, slow-cooked Moroccan stew with tender meats and flavorful sauces), pastelas
(pastries filled with chicken or fish), and tender veal served over cous cous. There are also plenty of vegetarian options, but no alcohol (it's not halal). If you have any questions about the menu, manager Mustafá Bourgrine and his waitstaff can assist you—they speak Spanish, English, French, German, Italian, and Arabic.
