Dinner here with two friends who also happened to be in town. Serendipity.
The food was generally very good and had some wonderful flavours. I have to recommend the amazing celery sorbet for dessert, thought the chocolate soufflé with basil ice cream also went down a treat with friends.
The steak tartar was apparently very good and both octopus and squid dishes were beautifully cooked and presented but lacked the extra wow. I love deep fried courgette flowers in a tempura batter but I have to say that these weren't a patch on the one's - stuffed with goat's cheese and drizzled with honey - that you find at Dehesa in London.
We had a couple of bottles of very good pink fizz, and four bottles of water. No coffees. €205 for four.
The ambience of the place isn't really 'romantic', it is contemporary and very clean. Great bathrooms.
Service .... well we didn't add more to the service charge because it was a little hit and miss, though the taxi did appear when requested.
