Al Hambra on Map

Situated within the bowels of Al Qasr, which literally means the palace, Al Hambra gives a taste of Spanish staples. Fairly large area with columns joined by arches with high ceiling and tables spaced out just right, it exudes a disarming charm. Last night barring a few, most tables were occupied. Spanish music played throughout.
My waiter, Chandra, explained the dishes. Fresh, discus shaped bread with salsa and garlic cream dip promptly served. The bread held vertically in a receptacle with the dips on either side was very nice. Beef strips served separately. Ordered for 2 tapas- fried calamari and pork chorizo. Calamari was served with lemon and garlic cream. Breaded calamari with the salty, fried slices of the fatty sausages not to forget the garlic cream seemed like an overindulgence of unhealthy eating. Felt already full after the tapas which is ideal for sharing by 2. The main course was the seafood paella with lobster bisque,shrimps, calamari and mussels. It was highly recommended but was only average. Had the sangria tinto to go with the food.
Good sized portions, genuine Spanish food and attentive service are the plus points here.
Sangria tinto - AED 50
2 tapas - AED 70
Seafood paella - AED 125

Great place, music a bit too loud (we were far from the stage, but still noisy if you wanted to have a proper conversation). friendly service. A good spot overall.
