A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

A María José San Román, ‘The New York Times’ la bautizó como ‘la reina del azafrán’ porque esta especia está muy presente en su cocina sutil, refinada, de raíz tradicional, y porque incluso lo produce ella misma. Pero a la chef le apasionan también el aceite de oliva virgen extra y el arroz. Pone tres variedades de aceite en la mesa para que los comensales vayan jugando con los platos y domina el arte del arroz con una maestría sin igual, cosa que demuestra en sus variadas propuestas con grano de la carta. Gracias a su trabajo, esta cocinera triple A (azafrán, arroz y aceite) ha cosechado una estrella MICHELIN y un sol Repsol.

El restaurante ocupa un antiguo almacén al final del paseo Marítimo de Alicante. Sus tres plantas lucen una decoración de tonos cálidos muy marinera: maderas, cuerdas, latón tratado, acero pintado... En la línea del entorno, pues está junto al Real Club de Regatas y la playa del Postiguet. En la terraza de la azotea hay una barra de coctelería y en la segunda planta están los salones para eventos privados

El pan que sirven sale del obrador propio, donde trabajan con harinas ecológicas, integrales, fermentos naturales...

    All the appetizers were of the same kind of “no taste”. The meet in One of the main menus was with 80% fat and even when we notified the staff they did nothing about it. The deserts were superb.
