A humble Michelin starred restaurant in Madrid will take you to another level of dining experience. We have chosen the 12 course menu, since the 17 is way too much with very affordable prices, I guess it was 65€ per head. All the dishes were...More

Visited for lunch with wife. We choose 17 courses. Service is beyond exemplary with staff obviously well trained to a very high standard. Wine reasonably priced. Food superb as you would expect from a Michelin restaurant; imaginative, superbly presented and full of flavour. Highly recommended

We've been here twice now - one before it had its Michelin star and one after. Both times, the food and service was absolutely incredible. It's now a must visit for every time we visit Madrid. I would recommend getting as many courses as possible....More

This is a very trendy, cool restaurant which for a one star michelin is a welcome change. The staff are all very young but very efficient. The food is certainly different with some amazing as well as unusual flavours. We opted for the 16 course...More
