“Amazing creativity and innovation, incredible flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

This restaurant started out as a private dining club and the premise is located in a very nice old building but understated with sign on the door. The service is very professional, without being overbearing. There are three menu options, differing only in the number of appetizer courses. All the courses are innovative and artfully put together. I must admit that the first bite with the name card that tastes like hostia was not a success on taste or texture, but nevertheless a interesting start. The subsequent dishes never disappointed an eager diner. Among the dishes, the foie gras and baby lamb were simply outstanding. All other dishes were visually stunning with good taste to match, and disserts were amazing. The poached egg was one of the most spectacular dishes. The wine list is extensive and the prices are quite reasonable for the wines on the list. I wish there were a wine pairing available. It’s just too different to find a few wines that fit the large number of courses. Overall this now ranks among my top dining experiences and I recommend it highly. Can’t wait to go back to Madrid so that I can eat here again.

“Possibly the best dessert courses ever...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Tucked in a nondescript building with no signage, a security guard pointed us up the stairs to the restaurant. No ala carte options, just 3 tasting menus of various sizes - we opted for the middle option, Seduction. In retrospect, I probably could have gone for the Revolution which had just one more starter. As other reviewers have commented on, the desserts were uniquely presented and just as importantly tasted amazing. There's a great attention to detail on getting the temperature of the food just right. Sounds like a strange concept, but the mouth feel of most/all entrees was exquisite. Should have done a wine pairing but just opted for a starter and dessert wine. BTW, this outing was the least expensive of our gastronomic Vuelta de España.
