Chef-owner Juan Ranas is a romantic when it comes to dining, and his “garden” at one corner of the Mirador San Nicolás assumes a kind of fairytale elegance once the candles are lit. He serves an excellent tapas menu in the garden terrace upstairs, including his creamy croquettes. The downstairs dining room with linen-clad tables and a profusion of glassware features an updated version of Andalucían classics. The roast lamb shoulder, for example, is cooked slowly at a very low temperature until it falls apart, and the Moorish pastries combine small pieces of fork-tender meat as well as chunks of eggplant.
