Dining with a View: Restaurante El Mirador de Tato, Granada

I thought that by the time I’m visiting Granada for the 4th time this October, I would have already seen all of the best restaurants in Granada with gorgeous views.

I couldn’t have been more wrong!

Restaurante El Mirador de Tato was a lucky discovery following my short visit to Palacio dar al-Horra which is a short walk away. Having not planned a place for lunch, Google Maps luckily suggested this place nearby and I was really happy as soon as we strolled in.

The restaurant is a bit hidden and not easy to spot the entrance. You walk in through what looks like an apartment building garage entrance, which opens up to a large terrace (barrier-free access too).

The generous space is framed by small trees on each side, with the best seats available right at the back where you can admire the views.

A waiter will appear out of nowhere (the restaurant premises are on the lower floor by the terrace stairs) and offer you the menu. Crisp white tablecloths and quality linens are usually a good indication that the food will deliver on the promises too.

The restaurant serves traditional Spanish cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To make the most out of your visit, I would recommend dining here at sunset.

While the menu is not extensive, it offers plenty of options to treat your taste buds, and the food is made from quality locally sourced ingredients.

A traditional rustic bread with olive oil is served to start with (charged at 1.50 per person). It tasted like it was freshly made and the olive oil was superb! I ordered the teriyaki salmon with veggies and was really happy with it, and my husband got a Ceasar salad which also got a lot of compliments.

We were visiting for a very early lunch (locals eat lunch quite late) so the restaurant was nearly empty and very peaceful. You can’t hear any traffic from the road, and the only thing that spoiled the serene moment was the sounds coming from the construction site next door (not to mention my restless 6 month old).

Below are a few photos from the restaurant, followed by the details for the restaurant, including location and link to their menu.

If you’re visiting Granada, I think you would love this place for a nice dinner at sunset.
