Casa Juanillo, Granada

81 Camino Del Monte
Spain 18010
Tel: 34 958 223 094's insider take:

This down-home, family-run eating house is in the heart of Sacromonte, an eccentric neighborhood where much of the population (mostly gypsies) lives in caves, putting on overpriced flamenco shows for tourists. The Juanillo rises above all that in a one-room dining space with a few tables, terra-cotta plates, and great views from its open-air porch. The food—Spanish ratatouille called pisto, baby lamb chops—is plain, authentic, hearty, and good value. The owners are given to breaking out the guitars and engaging in some impromptu flamenco—and if you are interested in one of those gypsy shows, they can arrange it. (Leave most of your money back at the hotel, though; these shows are designed to fleece you.) Book ahead.

Closed Sunday evening and Monday.
