While this restaurant may attract tourists, it’s not your typical “trap”—the bill adds up to the experience.

NileGuide Expert tip:
The third story terrace has the best views of the Alhambra, and you'll want a reservation.
Even if it weren't for the exceptional views of the Alhambra from the dining rooms and terrace of San Nicolas, this restaurant would still be well-known for its exceptional service, food quality, and overall elegance.This former Carmen Granadino, a beautiful Moorish house dating back to the 16th century, features a garden, fountains in the entryway, and corridors adorned with Moorish decorations that echo the Alhambra's interior. In addition to a long list of tapas, San Nicolas has a tasting menu, over 200 wines, and a long list of desserts. The a la carte menu features traditional granadino
cuisine with a creative twist. Favorites include the lomos de bacalao confitado sobre vichyssoise con almejas de carril y crujiente de setas
(confit cod filets over vichyssoise and clams with a mushroom crust) . The overall ambience is intimate and sophisticated, yet comfortable—perfect for a romantic dinner. Mains 36-50 €
