Restaurante Aben Humeya, Granada, Spain

Aben Humeya came recommended and it certainly disappoint. First, this restaurant has the most direct and fantastic view of the Alhambra possible. We ate here at 9pm and so saw the Alhambra switch between sunset lighting and the most majestic night lighting. The restaurant itself is simple, basically an enclosed patio. The service was nice, but we waited quite a while for our food. As a nice gesture we were served a complimentary cream gaspacho that was to die for. We had a vegetable risotto that was nicely seasoned and well prepared, along with a pork dish covered in a cream sauce with highlights of chocolate. You couldn't really taste the chocolate, but the sauce was quite nice and the pork was good enough. Without wine the dinner for two of us was only 33 euros, so a fairly good price for a nice place, and a spectacular evening view.
