La Barrica- You Choose

There are many times when you may find yourself in the centre of Granada for the day and you really need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city but can only find tourist restaurants that do little to excite the appetite, or the wallet.

However, if you should be in the vicinity of El Cortes between Carrera del Genil and Acera del Darro, then luck is at hand because this wonderful establishment, opposite the Acera Del Darro entrance is all you will need. Not only are the prices reasonable, and the tapas large and satisfying, but - most importantly of all - they are listed on a large board behind the counter for you to select with each drink ordered.

¿ Y de tapa ?

A large roll filled with your selection arrives soon after the drink and, such are the generous sizes of these tapas, the need for a larger plate of food is postponed till a later hour of the day.

The bar is large, with seating at barrels, tables or at the bar itself and the waiters friendly and helpful. And of course the place is packed with all sorts, confirming the choice for visitors and residents alike.

And of course, very handy for those mid afternoon shopping necessities in that little place over the road.

Thumbs up on this one.
Nice little place. The food was good. I ordered the vegetarian lasagna, but they checked with me before they processed the order because it isn't a vegetarian dish. Great service.
