Types of orders
Menú del día: set menu (usually on weekdays and only for lunch). These are often displayed on boards outside the restaurant. The idea is to choose one dish from the first section as a starter and another from the second section as your main course.
Ración: bigger portion of food. Ordering raciones is a good way to have lunch or dinner with a group, sharing the dishes in the centre of the table.
Tapas: a smaller portion of food, but very famous for being part of the gastronomic culture of Granada.
Granada is one of the few remaining cities in Spain still serving tapas on the house. Most bars in Granada will serve up a free tapa with every drink.
Typically, a tapas bar gives out the same tapas all at once for the first round of drinks, something different for the second round of drinks… In some places you choose from a menu, but usually no more than two different choices per party are allowed. In Granada caña refers to the smallest size for a draft beer (~25cl), tubo is a bigger size (~33cl).
TIP: When a waiter sees you eyeing the menu, they may think you’re going to order food. As in pay for it. So, even if you are planning on ordering something on the menu, WAIT. Order your first round of drinks and wait to receive your complimentary tapas. Then order your food.
TIP: If you like beer, you should not leave Granada without having tried Alhambra 1925 (green bottle).
