Tel: 34 958 226 882's insider take:

Situated next to the river, this lively restaurant is where the young and trendy get their sustenance, drawn in by the simple, modern interior and abstract art. The creative Argentinean chef favors unusual meat combos—lamb in cumin sugar with chocolate sauce, pork with vanilla purée, lamb with golden syrup—which may not be to your taste if you don't have a sweet tooth. More traditional dishes are also given a twist; we like the almond soup with paprika crunch, and remojon (cod and orange salad) with a mustard and curry vinaigrette. From the wine list, try a bottle of the Barranco Oscuro, a good dry white from the nearby Alpujarras. And ask for a window seat for a view of the Alhambra, which towers above the hill opposite the restaurant. In fine weather, the shady riverside terrace is also a delightful spot.

Open Sundays through Thursdays 1 to 11 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 1 pm to midnight.
