Casa Juanillo Restaurante en el Sacromonte Granada
Apart from the food and the atmosphere the most attractive characteristic about this restaurant is the panoramic view. From your table you will be able to see the Alhambra, the Generalife, the Silla del Moro and the full beauty of the Sacromonte valley.
The family of the owner are all flamenco artists and if you are lucky you might see an impromptu performance in the restaurant with a few of them sitting round a table playing.
The menu is based on the home cooking of the the gypsy families in the valley. Some of the favourite dishes are suckling lamb chops, fried sweet pepper salad, Sacromonte omelette (with brains and sweetbread) and also you could try the ratatouille (pisto). Given the quality of the cuisine and the charming surroundings the prices are very moderate.
The restaurant is in the Sacromonte area which has great views of the Alhambra and is known for flamenco. Although it is easy to get to by bus or by taxi it would be a pleasant walk from Plaza Nueva or the centre of Granada.
