Concierge.com's insider take:
For an unencumbered view of the Alhambra, nab a seat on the large, sunny terrace of this restaurant, just below the Mirador de San Nicolás. In inclement weather and on winter evenings, head inside and downstairs, where the dining room has huge windows on the same stunning outlook. Inevitably, given the location, prices are on the steep side, but the dishes are imaginative and portions generous. The bread selection alone is a plus point; choose from olive, sunflower, garlic, and onion. Try the salad of arugula, pear, endive, blue cheese, and walnuts, and the tasty aromatic couscous topped with lamb or juicy zucchini, pumpkin, and almonds. Vanguard desserts include quince soup, and chocolate and basil coulant. On the downside, the service can be a little frosty, but that knockout view makes up for it.
Open daily 1 to 3:30 and 8 to 11:30 pm.
