“A refreshingly different style of cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Sanlúcar is a great place to eat but you can tire of king prawns and fried fish (really!). This restaurant offers a great alternative. The young chef prepares a slightly more elaborate cuisine. We dined twice and found every dish imaginative and well prepared. The service is charming and competent. A very good restaurant.

“Lovely evening although weird!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

After wandering around Sanlucar de Barrameda looking for a restaurant, we realised it's full of tapas bars. Don't get me wrong, we love tapas, but after a few days of it, we just really fancied a restaurant menu. So we headed back to the 'gastro' restaurant at our hotel, Posada de Palacio. The restaurant is out in the courtyard garden, whilst inside offers a bar and tapas menu. Being mid Sept we were just out of season and the only people in the entire place at 9pm. The waiter suggested we may prefer to eat inside because of the Mosquitos. The garden was in darkness and none of the tables were set, plus there were quite a few nozzles around so we sat inside. It seemed a bit too quiet, considering that down in the main squares there were throngs of locals packed in to the numerous tapas bars, so we were slightly suspicious... The food and wine were amazing though. The food was delicately and thoughtfully put together with a subtle modern take on local cuisine. Really outstanding and enjoyable. The tiny cold savoury melon soup that the chef sent out between courses was wonderful. No idea why it wasn't busy!

“Modern tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

A relief to find a modern gastrobar serving high class absolutely delicious and interesting modern tapas , a bit of a relief from all the fried food served in most establishments in Sanlucar.

Also set inside an authentic old Posada.
