We taxied there, you go through a private barrier at one point, it feels very exclusive. Walking down the corridor into the restaurant, the first thing you think is wow. It's the most beautiful restaurant I think we've ever been in. The open glass fronted kitchen is to one side, but the pièce de résistance is the view out to the sea. The whole of the front of the restaurant is open with nothing but palm trees framing the view. The sun was just setting, it really was magical. I spotted chef Dani García there too, and as he now has a restaurant in New York, he isn't always there these days. Later on he tweeted us saying he was sorry he missed us as he had intended to come out for a chat.
Egg with no Egg. Dreamy, like a creamy ajo blanco a local chilled almond soup which is a favourite of ours.
Partridge foie cold/ hot. Very good.
|I've seen this crockery style elsewhere recently.|
Gazpachuelo Gachamiga of Crab. Good too, like a crab soup, but this isn't a Michelin star dish for me, more like one you'd find in a typical traditional Spanish restaurant.
Food: Very good generally with a few exceptions.
Star dish: Eel with Almond Summer.
Soundtrack: Another star - Stevie Wonder.
