By far the best dinner I have ever had the honour to experience. Wonderful setting, staff and food. Only minus I can think of is the famous macaroon which was really dry. But still, it is the best dinner I have ever eaten even. Technique, flavour, depth, innovation. Cannot say enough good things!

This was my second visit and if anything, the food was even better than the first visit. A beautiful dining room, which wouldn't look out of place in London, exceptionally professional service, including waiters wearing gloves to place cutlery, wonderful, exquisite food and a great wine list. I really didn't expect food and a venue of this standard in Gran... More

Located at the apartments of Aquamarina, it has a lovely view at night overlooking a lit pool and the "bay" of Arguineguin. The food is good, a bit too rich for my taste and we found the portions small. Service is ok, friendly but not really genuine.
