This restaurant had to be THE highlight of our voyage to Spain! Did it tick all the boxes? Unfortunately no.
Off course, whilst making travelplans, one builds up such high expectations that it becomes hard for the restaurateur to meet them. Also because we believe to be frequent gourmet restaurant goers, it is hard to blow us away.
It is a small restaurant, modern, very simply furbished in white and light wooden tones. Being small is imho a good sign.
But that music was a drag! I thought I was on the groundfloor of a shopping mall, where they play this awful musac, to keep the costumers calm. At least they agreed to turn it off until more customers arrived.
Service was done by 2 ladies. One hardly understood english. The sign outside clearly said they'd speak English. They serve you so 'exquisitely', it was over the top. Please, no manierisms, Michelin star or not, act normal !!!! And I honestly can't stand it to be watched at every bite I eat and as soon as I have finished my plate, have it taken away.
But really, the food was good, superb presentation. I don't want to discribe it all, look at the pictures. 16 courses for 85€. A fair price.
Still, to meat my tastebuds, it could have been a little more daring, more with contrasts, with more use of sourness, or herbs. I'm splitting hair, I know.
One real highlight: the pigeon was simply perfect. It did not look as special as the other courses, but the taste, oooohhhh! In most places it's the main that is a let down. Not here!
Wine list, with wines from everywhere, starting really fair and ending ...... well, as due to Michelin level.
And there is the question of saltyness, mentioned in other recensions. Well, I must agree. Some courses were under- and some oversalted. Chef's tastebuds overstressed?
Did Victor care to great his customers? No.
Does he have to? Not really, but it is always a nice gesture.
