“Delights of Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

I did not think that I would enjoy Spanish food as thought it would be Paella and Tortilla's.
How wrong can one person be, or two as my partner was with me.
There were three menus available for the evening:- A La Carte, 5 course tasting and 8 course tasting.
We opted for the A la carte so we could try several dishes
Starters
Garlic soup/ Iberic Ham
Main
Duck/Tenderloin
Dessert
Coconut/Chocolate
The above was preceeded by 3 apptizers watch out for the air baguette use your fingers its less messy
There are many words which can describe our experience:- Enlighting,flavoursome,delicate,very very tasty and not at all what I imagined.
The chef is ex Michelin El Bulli and I am glad to have experienced a Michelin starred chef in action.
I was very pleased with the overall experience and would recommend to go before it becomes well known and then impossible to get a table.

“Excellent cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Yesterday I had lunch with two collegues.

The staff were attentive and explained the appitizers and the dishes well.

Wine was recommended even though the wine list was undergoing modifications due to clients comments and suggestions
The Chef Juan Carlos has worked in several Michelin starred restaurant the last being El Bulli and that is eveident with the quality of food and certainly the presentation.
His mushroom raviloi is to die for and the new plate of Vension was mouthwateringly scumptious.
The menu is high class traditional Spanish dishes with a modern curve.
There is a coice for most with a cheaper 3 course luncheon options to a fine dining 8 course menu dejustation.

This is a very new restaurant and is perfect for sampling something a little different in a quiet location.
