Stunning setting. We specially liked the small entrées, about six of them, all very delicately prepared. Portions just right, service perfect, all waiters spoke excellent English. Wine choice up to you but we had a white Verdejo to start with (delicious) and a red Reserva for the main course.Very good as all Riscal wines. My wife is not very fond of venison but here, even she liked it, it was so delicately prepared. Only disappointment were the toilets - we would have expected Mr. Frank Gehry to design something a bit more memorable. Would recommend this place to every gastronome.

Not easy to separate from the fact of being where it is, the food is classical revised style, the execution is excellent, the service is according to the place, and the price also according.
Only one would expect that the house wines would be priced as an opportunity to be tried, but they are not: market Price.

Staying at this property and saving dining at this restaurant to last was a super experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I will say however that although a tasting menu, the portions are bigger than should be for a taste, so you can get full easily. The service was top notch as was the setting, ambiance and view. Of course, the wines from this winery will end up in your wine stock when you return home!

First..The hotel...Frank Gehry is a genius...not to be missed if you are in the area. The restaurant offers a wonderful experience : great staff, professional and friendly and the menu (Gastronomic) is very original : traditional dishes revisited in a contemporary style, using only the best ingredients...I could have done without the "caviar de vino tinto y foie"...the rest was superb (artichokes, cigala, bacalao...) don't miss the herbs trolley for the herbal tea...a must after such a dinner. The winelist is of course incredible.

The 7 course dinner with wine pairings was an unbelievable experience. Highly recommended. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. The tables were spaced well apart for a nice semi-private experience.
