You should not read the menu before entering because you could be puzzled. The cuisine is not traditional Spanish but clearly innovative and the names of dishes will give you only a vague idea of what expects you. So enter with confidence as addressed there by a trusty friend.
A young Argentine chef opened this restaurant few years ago. The restaurant's ambiance is not what draws most diners to it. Simple, modern, cold. Small tables (just like in France) will accommodate you for an experience which will keep you coming back.
Our experience was absolutely positive. After a complimentary celery mojito we ordered humus, salmorejo, lacquered guinea hen, sweet and sour Iberian pork. Then apple crumble pie with ice cream and caramel which was superb. Everything was really good and innovative. Can you imagine an emulsioned salmorejo with drops of pesto sauce and olive oil ice cream? Well I couldn’t and now I know it is delicious. And the apple crumble pie with matcha tea ice cream? All dishes were very well presented and were a delight to the eye. The portions were the right size. The waitress was very attentive and explained all the dishes when presenting them. A really unexpected attention that helps the customer enjoy the meal. Too many times the customer, left alone without explanations, can only guess the preparation of innovative cuisine.
Prices range from € 8 for starters to € 15 for the main dishes but forget them: everything is worth the money.
Let’s hope the young chef doesn’t lose his enthusiasm for the innovative cuisine and the attention to the customers.
The restaurant is close to Ventura Rodriguez metro station (line 3). You can go there after visiting the very close Cerralbo museum and temple of Debod.
