Santceloni Review

Top Spanish chef Santi Santamaría died suddenly of a heart attack in 2011, but the Madrid branch of his Racó de Can Fabes (near Barcelona) had already been well helmed for several years by his most daring disciple Óscar Velasco. In a sophisticated environment, where the service is as impeccable as the food, Velasco makes exquisite combinations of Mediterranean ingredients accompanied by a comprehensive and unusual wine list. Go with an appetite and lots of time (a minimum of three hours) because a meal here is ceremonious. If you're a meat lover, make sure to try the jarrete (veal shank). Cheese aficionados swoon over the cheese sampler offered before dessert.

    Be preared to pay a lot.

    2 star Michelin and really classy but you will need to empty your bank account to go or be handed a gift invitation from a wealthy benefactor. The service is excellent - each member of the staff has a dedicated role (sommelier, chees-elier, lacuenta-elier etc).
