Located in Albaizin, this is a wonderful place to graze !! PICOTEO means pecking and you can peck here to your hearts delight ! Menu is a great selection of tapas and rationes. Something for everyone. Top quality ingredients. Extremely well presented too ! Owners/...staff are delightful. The dishes are full of flavour and mix of very old traditional recipes of Andalucia with a modern twist. Great place for a very long lunch !More

We stayed in an apartment down Calle del Agua de Albaicin and were looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night. Since a few restaurants that we had spotted while walking through the Albaicin appeared to be packed, we decided to try our...luck at this small place. We had an excellent dinner, with a mixture of tapas and raciones (among others, risotto with squid and shrimps, croquettes and fried anchovies). The meal was great value for money.More

We were wandering in Albaicin, and we found this great place. The manager was pleasant and warm. It was a bit hard to communicate because of the language barrier, but we managed, and the food was totally worth it. Delicious tapas! If you're traveling to...Albaicin go eat there.More

It tasted good! It was a very authentic place, where all the locals come. It’s a great family place.

we came here on the advice of someone living in granada. We liked what we ate on the first day and we came here on the second day. The price performance is very good. staff very sweet. our duck salad favorite, risotta was also very...good. If I stayed a few more days I would love to go there again for dinner, I have a few meals left in my mind.More

We found this restaurant by accident, after we visited the Iglesia SAN Nicolas, in the Albaicin area of Granada. We were a group of 13, and sat at a long table . Beers and Sangria , then tapas , then salads, tomatoes , and patatas.... After that we had lamb , cooked to perfection, then beef . A magnificent feast , with a fantastic waiter . A lovely event , with good food , good alcohol and wonderful company. , worth a visit .More

We had a rough start because it was full (there are only about 8 tables inside) and had to wait about 1/2 hour for a table at 2:30 PM. The food was worth the wait. We had the gambas pil-piil (small shrimp sauteed in oil)...and a salad with tuna. Both were terrific. The service was good considering how busy they were, serving also a few tables outside. It seemed very authentic in this old Albacin neighborhood.More

We had an okay but not at all well meal here. They were nice but the meal wade through at all what we had expected from all the reviews. In my opinion this is not an excellent place to eat.

After a long walk at dusk through the Albaicin, up the winding streets and past the breathtaking views, we ended up here. The food was wonderful, delicious tapas and cheerful prompt service, despite its obvious popularity. It was a fabulous way to end a fabulous...day in Granada.More

Used to the rather small portions in UK tapas restaurants we woul have ordered far too much, and are grateful to Juan, our waiter, for telling us we'd ordered enough and stopping us from ordering more! The food we had was fantastic, and excellent value....Aubergines with honey was a new combination to me (although I've seen it on menus here in Granada). Battered strips of aubergine are deep fried, rather like tempura, and went well with the honey sauce. False risotto (small pieces of potato resembling rice) was new to ne too, and delicious. We even got an extra tapas dish to go with the drinks. Highly recommended.More
