Excellent food and service. It has a very nice price considering the high quality of the food offered. The service is also great, and they speak English! It is worthy to listen to the chef recommentadions. We shared several plates and enjoyed the experience a lot. Totaly worth paying a visit.

Dined here on Friday night last week. We both had the sensations menu and the food was exquisite. Vidal is amazing, pretty sure he was running front of house and the kitchen. Attention to detail perfect.

This is my second review of this place and could be by 30th visit or more.... What can I say, I have just tried the fall menu with the "fall raviolis", what a delicatessen!!! This restaurant never fails to make a great impression. Vidal is great, hardworking (works both the kitchen and the restaurant), friendly, young and enthusiastic. The food... More

Dined here on a weeknight. Thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu. The sirlion steak was the best beef we ate in 4 weeks of Europe! Would certainly recommend.

Adding to what others have said really - very good food and a nice owner/host. Bonus points for being one of the few restaurants to have a menu on the website and to accept reservations by email. Food was cooked superbly - octopus had a great texture, not rubbery at all, which is often the case, and a big starter... More

We went with friends to this quaint little place based upon the great reviews in Tripadvisor. Not in the center of town, but an easy cab ride, this place is a real find. The chef/waiter/owner is a delightful young man who is running all over the place as he does it all. However, neither the food nor the waiting suffer... More

We dined here a few weeks ago, we both had the sensations menu. Our host explained all our courses and how they were prepared. Really enjoyed it all: the flavor and texture filled salad, delicious gazpacho, the octopus and cod appetizers , the suckling pig, and the light summer colorful dessert! We were lucky to be staying a few blocks... More

The charming small restaurant is a one man show where the person running it is the owner/chef/waiter/sommelier/busboy/cashier. It is unlike anything I have ever seen. But the best part is it serves excellent fine dining food at reasonable prices and the wines were also inexpensive. The best wine we drank during this trip was at this restaurant, a red Rioja....

This is not just a restaurant but an exquisite experience in dining. This is unique in that Vidal is your host, waiter and chef and performs each role wonderfully. We chose the taster menu which was fantastic as well as different. So many varieties to tempt your taste buds, truly a top class restaurant. Thank you Vidal for a memorable... More

My girlfriend and I visited la forquilla for a mid day lunch and we were the only occupied table in the restaurant. We opted for the 8 course taster menu and a bottle of wine recommended by the owner/chef/head waiter. The food was excellent, lots of variety and new flavours. The portions were spot on and the serving of courses... More
