The simply named 'Brown shrimps' is their take on the famous Tortillas de Camarones, shrimp fritters. We'd eaten the famous version at Casa Balbino a day or two previously. These were superior as the delicate crunchy lattice fritters were thinner and lighter, decorated with tiny fresh prawns.
The large Shrimp was for us the only misfire. They had tweaked with this one just too much, when the product is so wonderful, better for me would be to just leave it as is, the flavour wasn't quite right for us.
Ángel León is a fisherman himself, he respects the sea and champions the use of more sustainable lesser known fish on the menu. His philosophy says, "the best way to speak of the sea, is to be totally in love with it, live for it, from our stance on the Earth."
Chef Ángel León and his team are creating food that is completely unique and individual and very much of their specific place and time. It may have a single Michelin star at the moment but this restaurant is on an upward trajectory, for us it's one of the best restaurants in Spain right now. It would be no exaggeration to say that we feel lucky to have eaten there again. It was well worth that return journey.

The grand menu cost us €135 (£105) each. There is a smaller tasting menu for €105 but we didn't come all this way for half measures. A bottle of Albariño was around about €20.
