I'm so thrilled whenever I discover a new place in Granada which is not the average typical noisy café or restaurant. Yesterday, as we were going up to el Mirador de San Nicolas, to have some ice cream while watching the sunset, we noticed a new place has opened in the former house of flamenco singer Enrique Morente.
The door was opened so we peeped inside and found this cosy lounge at the entrance. There was no one but soon a young woman came down the stairs. She didn't mind at all my taking photos of the place and led us to the top terrace which faces the Alhambra. This is the view from the terrace in the first pic....Isn't it just glorious?There is a beautiful dining room on the first floor with an amazing wooden ceiling.
I very much like the soft blue of the railing of the stairs leading to the roof terrace. So Mediterranean....the landing is used as a small space to store glasses and crockery.
The terrace is a bit small but the views are just incredible.
In front of us......the magnificent Moorish palaces of the Alhambra. We ordered drinks and fish (lubina in escabèche). We could hear some guitar music coming from the plaza San Nicolas, on our right. The fish was excellent (well, the chef is French..please pardon my chauvinism!). Actually the whole team is French. Christophe, the manager, a very pleasant young man, left the south of France to settle in Granada. I'm sure, he'll be successful.As for me, I think I'll never end to be in love with Granada!
Hope you're all having a nice week end. I'll be back next wednesday. I'm sure you will have noticed my summer blogging laziness, I blame it on the heat but I promise to visit you by then!
