This is Spanish fine dining at its most personal with the charming manager/waiter in partnership with an excellent young chef. It is expensive but such imaginative and creative cooking deserves to come at a price.

Compared with excellent dinner elsewhere recently our experience at this restaurant was disappointing and expensive. 10 euros less but a world apart in quality of food. Service very friendly and attentive and with excellent English.

In a country where tapas are routine, this place offers very refined and good food. FYI : Opening hours are late: lunch after 1.30pm and dinner after 9pm. Not possible to eat earlier.

This place is just amazing, might be expensive but totally worth it. Please try the Ajo blanco con sorbete de melon, you'll reach paradise.
