“Simple cuisine, with clean, elegant and technically impeccable flavours”
Carlos Maribona in ABC, March 2010
As an entrée, they recommend the "Black potatoes stuffed with spare ribs and maize with coriander mojo sauce”, or the “Cheese salad on guava and vinaigrette of black sesame”. On fish, “Confit of cod with olive oil on yellow sweet potato ", or the “Tuna Hamburger”. “Among meats, success is based on the “Black pork cheeks”.
The desserts, subtle, sensual and delicious remind one of the tastes and aromas of childhood.
