DiverXO's Michelin-starred chef, David Muñoz, is still at the top of his game, where he's been for years now. Many will remember 2019 as one of the best and most refined times in Muñoz's career. The waiting list at DiverXO is long, but it's always worth it once you get the chance to have dinner in this colourful space where surprises are the order of the day (you might find yourself eating sea urchin that's been served directly into your hand). The contrasts that explode with every bite are the house trademark. A three-hour dining experience featuring more than 20 dishes is something you won't soon forget.
