Budget Restaurants in Granada

TapasWhile dining out in another country is essential to really get a taste of its typical cuisine, it can put quite a hefty dent in your wallet. Luckily, Granada is the diner-on-a-budget's dream. As the home of the free tapas, Granada has hoards of tapas bars which- as its nickname suggests- still serves up free and surprisingly substantial tapas with each drink.

For the more traditional sit-down experience, look for restaurants offering a "menú del día." Essentially a value meal, for the price advertised you'll be able to choose from a fixed list of first and second courses along with bread, dessert, and a drink. Normally ranging between € 5.00 and € 12.00, it's not a bad way to stock up! Check out the following restaurants, just a sprinkling of Granada's myriad of budget dining options:
