What went wrong here? We still don't know. Everything seems to be perfect with Lua and completely in line with what we typically like: Zen-style, beautifully and lovingly designed interior, great artwork, minimalist yet innovative approach to food: you name it, we like it. Sure, the atmosphere was not perfect, as it was a very quiet evening on a working... More

Dear Ron, First of all, thank you for writing your opinion, we appreciate it, especially taking into account the evening didn't turn out quite as you expected. You gave us really interesting feedback, so thank you. We are really sorry to hear the flavors didn't quite match your tastes. We prepare traditional recipes with a twist on textures and flavors,...

We had a degustation. It was ok. Some courses were a little too adventurous for our group's palate. I really liked the tuna sashimi course. Service was good too.

At first site the restaurant gives the feel of high class, but at closer look, not that much! Very polite waiters, all handsome and with a smile! Service was very attentive, but we were only three people on a Monday lunch so... The decor was calm and nice, light background music, i only found the "framed art" a little stupid... More

Dear Customer, First of all, I must tell you the honest opinions of our customers never offend, but on the contrary, help to improve. However, I have to comment that I disagree on several points. First of all: You say that found the art a bit "stupid". For though we are here to talk about food, would not do justice... More

We went for a team dinner with pre-defined menu. Amazing! Wonderful food, amazing service! Recommend to anyone! From appetizers, to main courses and desserts... Oh my! The desserts! Even have decent espresso for Madrid! Gin selection also very good!

A lovely restaurant with excellent food, very good service and soothing atmosphere. We chose menú Lúa with recommended wine-selection which was a great choice. We are more than satisfied and recommend it warmly.

My husband and I went on a Saturday evening. We had the 8 courses tasting menu. Every dish looked amazing and the flavor was outstanding. We had faked olive, then scallop ceviche, faked cherry and cauliflower soup, fried tuna marinated in soya sauce and served with seaweed salad, prawn risotto, cod with truffle powder, lamb with cuscos and finally green...

For our 10 day trip to Spain this dinner probably was our least favorite for a number of reasons. Upon arriving for our reservation, the upstairs was rather vibrant but with tables available, yet they pushed our party of two down to what I'll refer to as the basement dungeon where perhaps they steer tourists. We were dressed appropriately, nothing... More

Great food, I appreciate the fact that it might not be as impressive sensually as El Club Allard. But it tastes great. On a Monday evening the atmosphere left a bit to be desired, however I can imagine it being much better on the weekends. If you aren't bothered by small quiet restaurants definitely go on a Monday. However the... More

I chose this restaurant on the recommendation of my boss who had dined there only six months before. It was our 30th wedding anniversary dinner and I particularly wanted it to be special. This restaurant did not let me down. The service was very good - attentive without hovering. I was a little nervous about whether the size of the... More

First of all, I rarely write reviews about restaurants or hotels, but I made an effort to give a review about this particular restaurant. I found this restaurant from TripAdvisor, and even though it was ranked number 21, I decided to go there on May 28, 2014, and I was so happy that I did! Before talking about the dishes,... More
