There are several locations of the Los Diamantes tapas bar, but they all specialize in seafood and have different atmospheres.  This one was a little larger and brightly lit. As with most of the tapa bars in Granada, the place serves you food with each round of drinks.  It had different age groups but most all were drinking beer.  They had the small glasses lined up on the counter filled with ice water.  When you order a beer they pour that ice water in another glass and run the beer into the chilled glass.  The beers come in 2 sizes but you’re best to order small ones because you get the same food whether you have a large or small pour.  This place didn’t have a lot of decorations it mostly was decorated with tons of people at the long counter.  There were a few high top tables in the large part of the room and people gathered about them.  Along the narrow hall to the bathroom were a few wall shelves and people were there too.  The crowd came and went constantly but the pace was always busy and fast.

With our first set of beers came a plate of rice and lamb ribs accented with a few cockles.  It was warm and delicious.  The rice melted in your mouth and the lamb was fall-off-the-bone tender.  Totally savory.   Afterward you needed to grab some napkins to wipe your fingers and Frankie was delighted to see the cat fountain from the Alhambra on it.

For our next round we got tiny clams in garlic oil.  They were ultra fresh and also delicious.  They were sweet with no grit.  Wonderful.

Next round got us a plate of razor clams.  They were fat and chewy and dotted with oil.  Another delicious treat.
