Description: Based on an exhaustive selection of the best raw materials in our region, the gastronomic offer is made from simple and tasty tapas to a full season tasting menu. Paying the utmost attention in the respect for the raw materials, producers and our environment, we work to make the gastronomic experience not only pleasant and fun, but also sustainable, fair and healthy. 80% of the products we use in our kitchen, from vegetables, meats and fish, to wines, beverages and breads, come from small producers in the region. This obliges us and allows us to always work with seasonal products and update our menus permanently. We do not use gluten or lactose and the sugar from our desserts is integral and environmentally friendly. The visit of our clients, then, becomes a comprehensive event ranging from the sensory enjoyment proper to an emotional satisfaction derived from the knowledge of knowing that what is being enjoyed also contributes to strengthen the local economy and Our own health.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

My husband and I were intent on trying the popular restaurants mentioned in guidebooks and on websites, however, the helpful concierge over at Mercer Hotel recommended us to try Montiel. We were a bit skeptical since Montiel wasn't mentioned in our guidebook but ended up not disappointed at all!

Recommended to try the degustation menu -- about 8 to 10 small portions of the chef's creations. Great variety of local and ingredients. Wine pairing also good. Dishes may be small, but once I got towards the end of the tasting menu I barely had room for dessert.

We sat downstairs towards the back, so it felt like we had some added privacy. The dedicated server to our table who was very friendly and knowledgeable about each dish. Mind you this is Spain where dinner is an experience (especially with such an expensive meal). Nothing is rushed, so if you want your meals served and dishes taken away quickly you're better off going to McDonalds.

Great romantic dinner, and absolutely loved it! We walked off the calories by taking a nice stroll back to the hotel.

“A great experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My boyfriend and I went here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The place is small, giving it a quite intimate athmosphere. We ordered the large tasting menu (10 dishes) with wine pairing. The waiter was very good at presenting all dishes and the wine, and we loved the variety and the flavours of the food. I found the pricing level very reasonable, and quite cheap compared to similar restuarants in other big cities around Europe/US. We recommend this place!

“The best meal ever”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

There are two tasting menus. We chose the eight-course, 50 Euro one and were absolutely blown away by the taste, presentation and wonderful friendly owner, Marco. One course that was particularly outstanding was the cherry gazpacho with cucumber sorbet. A delight for the eyes and stomach. The best meal I've ever had.
