Bar Casa Julio
Bar Casa Julio:
Traditional Tapas bar in the centre of Granada
This small bar is renowned for its tapas and is always crowded (always a good sign for a tapas bar). There are also a couple of tables outside where you can sit with more room.
Just a quick note to bear in mind: girls - don't even think about using the toilet in the bar - ask the barman to show you where the ladies is.
The tapas are excellent and the fried fish particularly delicious and not at all greasy. The specialities include: boquerones fritos (fried fresh anchovies), rape en adobe (marinated monkfish), calamares fritos (fried squid - something you should try here if you've never eaten it before), and berenjenas (fried aubergines - these are excellent, and beautifully non-greasy). Apart from the tapas with drinks, they also do half and full size raciones.
Open at lunchtimes and after about 9:00 in the evening.
Located in a side street off the part of Calle Elvira that is in Plaza Nueva.
