Bellavista del Jardín del Norte (CLOSED)
Time Out says
This restaurant from the Iglesias brothers (Rías de Galicia, Kru, Cañota, Bobo Pulp...) and the Messi brothers (yes, you've probably heard of one of them) is a two-storey behemoth with 1,000m2 inside and another 1,000m2 of an island garden (with grass and trees!) that boasts reproductions of spaces you might find in a village, but instead it's sections of a restaurant. A corner shop where you can have breakfast, a snack or a vermouth; a church with cocktail service; the town square; corners where they spin vinyl records and play board games; balconies with all the creature comforts; a cinema / school hall...
The food is a compendium of the greatest hits of the restaurant, with creative seafood dishes (magnificent avocado tartlet with king crab, oysters with cherries) and rice dishes, meats for days, and an army of tapas and cold deli delights to go with vermouth (oh, the 'gilda bellevista' with olives and sweet peppers!). You won't find anything too out of the ordinary for a local restaurant, but it's all made with a gastro know-how that characterizes the place and those behind it.
