Though i haven't got the time or inclination to write reviews exceptionally i I have been moved to commend this restaurant. Superb and fresh raw materials imaginatively put together making delicious and original dishes. Having travelled around Northern Spain for a while and eaten in supposedly some of the best restaurants, this was undoubtedly head and shoulders above all others.

We enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu with accompanied wines in excellent settings at Porrue. The staff is friendly and very professional. We especially liked the "show cooking" with dry ice and the dessert using liquid Nitrogen. Great experience and great evening!

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the feeling was of absolute perfection. Service was faultless and personal without being to intruding. The food was out of this world. if I could rate to 150% i would do so. Definitely recommend if ever in this part of Spain.
