We walked past this restaurant just as it was opening for lunch, and were interested by the board of specials. A small selection were chosen and a good glass of crisp white wine from a good list of not expensive wines went with them. The...More

We stayed at the bar for a selection of tapas and wines. There were some great innovative and tasty tapas, some that were borderline strange, and some that were nice variations of normal tapas portions. The tuna with black risotto was great, but there was...More

What a joy this meal was! We ate from the tapas menu at the bar. Really clever food. The 'Dexter' was a highlight. Chosen purely as it's my name but a very welcome cerviche surprise. Great service from Fernando. Gracias! A couple more stools at...More

I'd had this place on my go-to list for a while and finally made it. It was even more impressive than the anticipation of going, far above and beyond. We had the tasting menu, which was absolutely amazing. The food was beautiful and so flavorful...More

Another visit, four so far. I complained about the sameness of the menu before. This time, the menu was changed, and for the BETTER!!! Gone were the entertaining/crowd pleasing touches like the 'Hannibal'. Instead we were served inspirational, beautiful food for grown ups. Hope to...More

We had the tasting menu and really enjoyed each dish , the wines they chose for us as well as the pleasant service. We are already planning to return soon - even though we have an almost two hour trip one way.

Second time at La Curiosidad de Mauro. It's a great experience to have the menu. These menus should be explained better when receiving hosts, as we weren't aware they have two different menus until a waiter told us while serving the last dessert. Don't miss...More

This is a marvelous restaurant serving fabulous food fit for foodies. On top of that, for this quality, it is very reasonably priced (especially the tasting menu at €55). This place totally deserves it's Michelin star. Innovative, beautifully presented food served by charming staff. What...More

By 27 he already played in the "Michelin League", earning his first star at Restaurante Skina (Marbella). In 2011 he returned to the Bay of Cadiz to create his own tapa restaurant: la Curiosidad de Mauro. Welcome and enjoy spanish Haute Cuisine
