We enjoyed very much the gastro bar experience! The food was outstanding both in terms of quality and innovation. Service was also excellent (they even offered women roses upon leaving, a nice touch). It was difficult to get reservations to this place (you have to show up in person at 2 pm at the restaurant where someone is taking reservations... More

This is a unique dining experience for sure. Your whole table has to agree on 8 courses from a menu of maybe 5-6 options per course. They are all a bit unusual and the explanations don't give much. Food was ok. Service was excellent and it was a fun concept.

Wife and I ate at White Box as part of our week stay, had to make reservations 2 days in advance, but was well worth it.

Make sure you understand the rule of reservation at this TWB, and make reservation asap. It would be a real shame if you stay here for one week and could not sit down for a dinner at this Excellent gastrobar! The food, drink and service are !Ni Hablar¡. I have to say it again !Ni Hablar¡.

The best food you could ask for on vacation. Services was fantastic. Drinks were perfect. With the back bans at the pyramid you eat for free. So even better.

This is a great restaurant. We went there twice during our one week stay at the Pyramid. The atmosphere and service are wonderful and the food is out of this world! The veal brioche burgers are INCREDIBLE. The seafood rice is amazing and the baby octopus is not to be missed. You have to try the Surprise Avocado. I've never... More

You have to reserve to get in. they sit you in a group of 4 maximum. We went as a group of 8. The way you choose your servings has a twist. I believe there were 8 groups of courses that had 4 choices within each course. As a group, you choose one course from each group. It was a... More

This is a unique dining experience because you have about 12 courses of small plates that you share with your dining companion. This pushes you to compromise on your selections somewhat but also to step outside your comfort zone a bit. We enjoyed the majority of dishes we tried and the service at this particular restaurant was the best at... More
