Visited this place after seeing it listed on lonelyplanet.com, and it was one of the highlights of my holiday. The restaurant offers a set tasting menu which, when I visited, offered a series of impeccably executed, creative versions of local and regional specialities, using the...More

We stopped by this place a week or so ago, and had one of the best meals in my travels over many years. A bit of a spin on local cuisine, e.g. padron peppers in a light tempura batter, a series of dishes which could...More

Good innovative version of traditional Sapnish cooking at reasonable value. I recommend. Serves a Monterrei red of the Mencei variety if you want local red wine by the glass.
