Definitely worth trying if you can snag a reservation. My husband and I were able to get a lunch reservation due to a cancellation and we jumped at the opportunity. And we were not disappointed. The location of the restaurant is a bit far and...More

I have always had memorable meals. I have tried the whole menu (even the eels and the caviar) many times over. It is spectacular. The head waiter, Omar, was incredible as was our sommelier. I put some pics on my ig: apuj773

In a trip with no shortage of Michelin stars (Coque, Arzak, Martin Berasategui, Elkano, Tickets, El Celler de Can Roca and Abantal) this is hands down my top pick and possibly my favorite meal ever. Victor Arguinzoniz describes his cooking as primitive but his restraint...More
