Honeymooning in Andalucia

upstate girl Apr 21, 2007 11:55 AM

My husband and I will be honeymooning in Andalucia (Malaga, Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz) in mid-May. All price ranges and cuisine welcome. We have several travel books but would love to hear more suggestions. Thanks!

    In Malaga, you must be sure to visit Antiqua Casa Guardia, it is a large bar specialising in the local Malaga fortified wines.

    An amazing place

      In Málaga you should go to "Cafe de París" and in Marbella (close to Málaga),have dinner at the wonderful "Calima".

      In beautiful Córdoba,go to "Pic-Nic"(contemporary Spanish cuisine) and "Bodegas Campos" (traditional and beautifully decorated Andalusian taberna).

      Just got back from Granada. Try Restaurante Arrayanes in the Albaizin for Morrocan-inspired fare, Bodegas Casteneda (on Calle Elvira) for beer and tapas at the bar or the small tables they have. Also had some great meals at the patio restaurants near the top of the Albaizin. There are a number of good restaurants below the Alhambra on the side of the Darro. And if you're still hungry, grab some Mediterrranean fastfood from one of the many pita shacks.

        Jkga,your recommendations are good but I'd rather go-once you're in Granada-for tapas and traditional Spanish/Andalusian food rather than those Moroccan restaurants and pita shacks set up by Turkish and Middle Eastern immigrants...those kebap taste just about the same than the ones you can have in Paris ,Berlin or NY.

          I think jkga was just throwing that in there at the end. I think it's important to consider it all when you go to a new place. I can see the pita shack coming in handy in a pinch or on the run. Thanks for all the recommendations! Keep them coming. It's great to have variety.
