First time in El Chato and we were happily surprised. Great food, wines and service, as far as I know this is the first place in the area to get a Michelin Star and I think its well deserved. Highly recommended.

Very special prepared plates. Lovely wines. Very deserved nomination on the Michelin guide. We had the 7 courses menu with wine arrangement. Been there several times. Always enjoyed the culinary plates

There are various menus to choose from and each has...More
