Not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. We were recommended to this by the Ritz concierge. Had two choices of red wine by the glass, a Ribera and a Rioja. Staff nice enough to let me try both. Bread was ridiculously hard....seriously, how hard is it to get bread right!? Gazpacho soup pre-appetizers had a fishy taste... More

We went for dinner last night and were sent there on the recommendation of a very famous Spanish chef. We began with the gazpacho, a dish I grew up with and loved, they added chunks of strawberries and herring to it! I get the sweet and salty thing but this did not work. The bites I had of the soup...

This restaurant was round the corner from our hotel - the food and the ambiance are excellent. However, the Butter Fish main course, although delicious, should come with a health warning. This was the first time I had eaten this fish and in some people the fish acts like a strong laxative, as it did for me. This gave me... More

This is a place to go in a special occasion. The tables are very close, the restaurant is very small and you can enjoy the beautiful dishes others are eating. The service is very good and attentive, the food is presented in such an original way that you are already enjoying it while it is bring to your table and... More

Some years ago I met in Viridiana Camilo José Cela, the great novelist and gourmet. It was an unequivocal sign that I was in the right place. And still it is. Meat, vegetables or fish, everything is prepared outstandingly following the Iberian instincts of Abraham, the owner and chef. Excellent wines at reasonable prices. Do you want to know a... More

When entering the restaurant, I did not expect what I would experience. This is a small restaurant with amazing service, great chef and perfect cuisine. This restaurant is new and definitely deserves at least one Michelin star. So if you are looking for an unbelievable evening, try visiting this restaurant!

15 international colleagues had a fantastic meal. Excellent quality of ingredients were enhanced by inspirational flavours. All of us were highly impressed; even our Italian colleague! Splendid service also. I would love to return.

A bad night? Abraham was there so it was not an absence of the chef that explains it. My guess is that we re talking decline. A second, excessive (I have never had to say this before--ever) unsolicited appetizer that seemed as if the kitchen was trying to get rid of stuff. A dried up pasta dish with fancy poultry... More
