Fodor's Expert Review El Lagarto de Lorca
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
In the choicest square in the Albayzín, which is covered with tables and chairs in the summer, this restaurant (named after a Lorca poem about a lizard) serves solidly traditional cuisine that includes rabo de toro , habas con jamón (ham with broad beans), and meat grilled over a log fire. The house specialties include croquetas with numerous different fillings and poached eggs with prawns. There are three upstairs terraces whose views take in the Alhambra and Granada (open April–October; book ahead for a seat at one of these), and downstairs among the rustic interior design and Alhambra murals, the fireplace will warm your toes when there's snow on the Sierras.
