Our visit at the Restaurante Apicius was a delight in every respect. The headwaiter was welcoming, good-humoured, but always professional and never intrusive. The wines he recommended to go with the dishes were exactly to my liking.
For dietary reasons we had decided to order from the menu. We chose different starters, main dishes, and desserts and swapped plates. Before we could savor what we had ordered we were served a set of appetizers, which were alternatively exciting culinary compositions appealing to the eye, or simply excelled in terms of quality - white bread and olive oil can be fantastic, indeed. The starters as well as the main dishes and desserts we had ordered exceeded our expectations and revealed interesting twists and new interpretations of classic dishes. The interior of the place is tasteful and elegant, with a clean, straight style. The price was absolutely appropriate. We left in high spirits and will recommend the place to anyone susceptible to fine dining.

The place was suggested to us by a friend and Chef, that is running the best Italian Trattoria, awarded in 2017. How could not trust him?

Well, at the end the dinner was much more interesting and exiting then expected. All the dining experience could be summed into:

-extreme delicacy
-fantastic textures

Every bite was a surprising game of layers, tastes and scents. Chef Enrique does some of the most amazing fried dishes ever tasted, and not only.

Attentive service and a cozy-elegant setting, together with the excellent food, ensure a perfect dining experience.

We will be back, soon!

My husband took me to this restaurant as a birthday treat and what a treat it was! There was plenty of space, the tables are huge and the service was attentive. We were served a special anniversary menu which included a glass of champagne each, myriad dainty, very original appetisers, and several courses. Most memorable was a ganache of foie-gras with pumpkin, a spanking fresh, white fillet of hake and an amazingly tender piece of beef served with a puree of potato and apple. Thoroughly recommended.

We had the special menu for Mother's Day and it was excellent! The chef's special starters were fabulous and the other entrees were exquisite (all three: the "jamón de bellota", the croquettes and the white asperagus). The main dishes were excellent: hake with a lovely cream sauce and cannelloni with duck. The dessert was incredible: different textures of chocolate with spices. This restaurant is one of the best in the city. We will be back. Highly recommended!
