Fodor's Review

Chef Jordi Cruz, the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin star and author of two books on his culinary philosophy and techniques, is known for his devotion to impeccable raw materials and his talent for combining creativity and tradition. The tasting menu is the only reasonable choice here: trust this chef to give you the best he has (and any attempt at economy is roughly analagous to quibbling about deck chairs on the Titanic). The hypercreative sampling has ranged from

tartare of oysters with green-apple vinegar, fennel, and seawort to veal royal with concentrate of Pedro Ximénez sherry and textures of apples in cider. Connected to an exquisite five-star boutique hotel of the same name, the dining room, awash in beige and white linens with dark wooden floors in wide planks, delivers a suitably elegant backdrop.

I love this place! Abac turns the rare trick; present a challanging menu and actually pull it off, with aplomb. They also manage to take a minimalist room and create a warm, intimate experience. Numerous visits and I've never come close to disspointment!

inspirational restaurant, my worldwide favourite

Inspirational on the basis of it's menu, it's delivery and it's service, somewhere to go to see how it should be done. The food is about contrast, the service about anticipation and experience about forgettable.

Tops my list of the best meal out in years

One of the best meals we have ever had in any city. Minimalist decore is not usually a personal favorite but the food and service were simply outstanding. Interesting food, great presentation and a good value.
