Fodor's Review

Deemed one of the world's top 10 chefs by the New York Times in 2014 and worthy of a Michelin star in 2013 and 2014, Ángel León showcases his creative seafood dishes in this elegant restaurant where edgy interior design combines lime green with crisp white lighting and table linen. Aponiente serves two menús de degustación (€136 for 23 dishes or €166 for 30), or you can mix and match food and wine for €52 or €67. Expect plenty of gastronomic inventions such as marine cheese, cuttlefish with potatoes, and rice with plankton and sea cucumber. León avoids species of fish that have become scarce, championing more abundant species such as sardines, shrimp, and cuttlefish. Tables can only be reserved 1:45–2:45 for lunch and 8:45–9:45 for dinner.
