Dining With A View in Granada Spain

Granada has some amazing places to enjoy delicious food with an incredible view.  Paseo de los Tristes is an area along the Darro River with open terraces to have a meal.

 Cafe Bar Al Candu has a fantastic view of the Alhambra, a Moorish Palace.

As the evening progressed the colors changed with the light.
Everyone was snapping photos from their table.
Lights reflect the ancient past.

For ten euros we had a three course dinner.  I chose humus as the first course dripping with fresh olive oil.

My husband had mixed salad with fresh vegetables.  Later came the tender chicken curie and scrumptious torte line.

It's a custom for the bride to invite friends to party before getting married.  She carries a whistle to guide her group to fun.  It added to the party atmosphere as they marched around.

Last came the creamy flan desert.
Three different musicians played in the background.  The gentle breeze kept us cool in Granada Spain.

The next day we ate at Jardines Alberto, a charming restaurant right across from the Alhambra.  This was the view from our table.
I ordered a local dish prepared with almonds and honey.  The chicken was so tender you could cut it with a fork.  I wanted to go ask for the recipe.
There were three terraces with a beautiful coi pond.  A celebration of local artists were having a viewing of their paintings.

Collecting art is part of the family history.  The restaurant is named after Jardines Alberto, a famous artist and his grandchildren are keeping the love of paintings alive.

The last place I'm picking with a view is in the Bib Ramble  Gran Cafe.  The cafe is named after the historic square Bib Ramble where many years ago Bull Fights were held.

The restaurant was established in 1907.  

The historic square was the view from our table.

First came the tapa with red bell peppers and onions.

Next came the spicy ratatouille with fried egg.

Finally fresh  Hake with mixed salad.  

A beautiful stain glass light fixture was glowing with the night.

Granada in Spain is filled with views  to discover over delicious food.
