    We were so lucky we were staying in the neighbourhood and discovered this wonderful restaurant. We were greeted warmly by Mariana, who took time to explain to us the dishes in English and to recommend wines. Each dish we tried was delicious and was presented beautifully. I highly recommend the salmorejo and the steak tartare. And don't miss the cheesecake for dessert!

    High standard food and service. The place is small, but cozy. Service was great and the food surprised us every time they came to the table. Presentation, flavours and quality of the ingredients at the standards of the very best Spanish restaurants.

    We went for a New Year’s Eve special dinner. We were served a number of small plates over the course of three hours. The evening was lovely. The food was exquisite, and paired with nice wines, mostly from the Basque region. At 11 pm, we didn’t know how we could stay and eat for another hour but it was so well paced that we managed. Really delicious.

    This restaurant was so awesome the first night we went, we went back a second night. We travel extensively and there are several reasons these were some of the reasons. 1. The food. Fresh ingredients, attractively presented. Colorful dishes with exquisite flavors. For example slow cold emery slow cooked egg with salted mushrooms, Iberian pork, and green pea sauce . Ravioli stuffed with white mushroom, extract of truffle and mushroom cream sauce. Try the outstanding tasting menu. 2. The People. It’s a family business. David Arellano is the chef and his wife tends to the guests. When we came back the second night he remembered us and personally constructed a different tasting menu based on fresh things he had in the kitchen. The team genuinely enjoyed what they were doing and loved seeing us smile. 3. The Space. Quiet neighborhood gem. Lots of space between tables. Clearly a neighborhood favorite. Don’t miss this place. We’ll be coming back just to go there.

    This is an excellent restaurant. Food is very well prepared, beatiful presented and service very attentive.This is the type of places where the passion is showed on each plate. Mussels Croquetes, Foie Grass, Octopus, Mushrooms Raviolis, Scallops and a Chessecake will be remembered for a while.Good wines and relaxed and modern set up. Wonderful for those staying at the nearby NH Collection San Sebastian Aranzazu.
