Fodor's Review

An enduring star of the city’s contemporary cuisine, this top-notch restaurant managed to survive the sudden death of its founder, star chef Santi Santamaría, garnering even greater acclaim under the leadership of Santamaría's successor and best disciple, Óscar Velasco. In a sophisticated environment, where the service, the tableware, and the wine suggestions are 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 you 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).

Funny waiters and bad-face good-bye. Bye is bye.

Fine food and fine compositions, but not worth the price. Overpopulated with waiters, moving in all directions in quite an uncoordinated and distracting way... sometimes (unintendedly) amusing also. The lady taking care of the bill was intolerably snotty, making inappropriate remarks and faces about our sharing of the bill.
