Make no mistake, this place is proper, full on, 'Emporers New Clothes' stuff.
Six of us ate there a few months ago, and laughed like never before - at it, not with it. Each tasteless or bitter dish was funnier than the last.
We are all people who eat out a lot, from 3 star establishments, to Cafe Rouge, to street food, and everything in between. Well Mugaritz, nice try, but you didn't fool us. The theatre bit is all fine, but the one thing that is non-negotiable is taste, and there was none. I mean almost nothing. "No seasoning, because we want you to taste the food" they said. Get outta here. What, every other chef who seasons their food is wrong? Loved the almost apologetic 'yes, we know' look on the face of the waiters who served us, when they realised we had sussed it.
Wine was good though. Knowledgeable sommelier.
Go if you must. It will give you a laugh if nothing else. If you love your food, and have a lot of frames of reference, you'll hate it. If not, and you are easily fooled, you'll have a splendid time.
