Fodor's Review

The name means "jellyfish," which explains why this ultramodern place has dim blue lighting like a tranquil ocean, and lamps shaped like jellyfish floating overhead. Eating here is like submerging oneself into the sea. The extensive, ever-changing menu by Chef Hector Crespo features inventive ceviches, including the truffle tuna tartare with cucumber and green apple. For something more filling, try the lobster yucca gnocchi or the orzo paella, which is generously covered

with an assortment of seafood. Chicken and chorizo with saffron beurre blanc are added to the dish making it oh so tasty and enough for two. You could also splurge on one of the torres del mar, or "towers of the sea." This gravity-defying dish comes hot or cold and includes oysters, mussels, shrimp—you name it. Don't pass up the Oysters Rockefeller, those alone are worth the trip.
