“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

A very nice small restaurant located close to the cathedral. They only offer a tasting menu but it was well worth it. Lots of local ingredients. The kitchen is open onto the restaurant and you can observe them preparing all the dishes while you eat.

“High quality modern food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Innovative food, usually seafood. They offer you two different menus,
with two different prices. The quality is outstanding, but certainly you
pay for it. The menu's are given to you in iPads. Very quiet atmosphere.

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Well I suppose we went there on a weekday and there was only one other couple there so the atmosphere was a bit lacking. Having been reviewed well by the international press our hopes were high. The food was very interesting but the service although good was rather stiff.

“Once in a life time experIence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

My husband and I have very different views on food. I am passionate about it and for him it is just a way to stay alive. All this changed when we ate at Casa Marcelo last night. On his final forkfull of a marathon 8 courses he looked me in the eye and said " I finally get it , this is art!"
This was the finest meal either of us have ever eaten. Watching them work in the kitchen was like a ballet. Even when they cleaned up. And we had front row seats.
I was worried he would faint when the bill came but he didn't even blink and said " worth every cent"
Life changing meal
