(provided you can digest it all)
We had a taste of tiesto's and enjoyed it very much, although it was a bit too heavy. We chose the tasting menu as we could not decide otherwise what to choose, since everything sounded interesting. We also hoped that the servings would be minuscule (as they usually are in the US), but instead the things just kept coming to our table: first it was the around dozen small bowls of delicate sauces; then the bowls started getting bigger and coming with orzo, rice, potatoes, and small tubers; then an even bigger arrived with amazing potatoes and parmeggiano, etc, etc, and these were just the sides. The "real" dishes contained seven big langostinos in butter sauce (delicious but heavy), followed by curried chicken breasts, lomo fino, shrimp soup to die for.....all that with half a bottle of white and half a bottle of house red. Oh, yes, there was also a dessert, which we had to share, thankfully. It is kind of clear why we hardly got home.
The atmosphere is good, the place looks nice, and there were many, really many locals waiting for the table. It did help that we were only a couple, as most who were left waiting were large families. The meal lasts a long time, because everything is made and brought fresh to the table.
To explain why the 4 stars, then: bread was at least a day old, which is a minor detail but something the resto of this renome cannot allow itself.
Finally, we did not really love the dessert. While the description of the tasting menu stated we could choose, the dessert was brought to our table without the waiter asking us which one we wanted. And although the presentation is spectacular - we actually saw the lady painting the plates with large jammy flowers - the chocolate cake was basically the plain American chocolate cake that lacks delicacy topped with somewhat better chocolate mouse. The maracuja ice cream that accompanied it was very good, though.
