From well-travelled chef brothers Roberto and Sergio comes this breath of fresh air on the busy Paseo de la Castellana.
Items on the menu are influenced by cusines from as far away as Lima and Bangkok with a stopover in Singapore. Inside, where splendid windows surround high and low tables, wooden chairs and tiled floors with cubic motifs, the brothers give us a simple, comfortable and functional space. There's an air of informality that perfectly suits what's cooking and attitude of the brothers, who you can often see coming out to chat with customers.
Their humility is directly proportional to efficiency, professionalism and balance, and you'll notice that in every dish. The place has got its own character, but there's also the comfort and recognition (of a smell or a taste) that you feel when you go back to your original family home to spend a few days. You will find some surprises, and they're all very welcome. You can be sure the products are reliable, and there's care taken to cater to the tastes of the area: take, for example, the remarkable beef loin prepared on their amazing oak charcoal grill.
We can fervently recommend their (addictive) sweetbreads, their chilli crab (with a sauce for spreading, spreading, spreading ...), their suckling pig's ears (with a glaze that's not just for looks), even the dim sum that were on the menu that day. But really the dishes are all so excellent that you will want to order a few and go with someone you can share with; the portions are generous so sharing is practically a must. It won't be easy to choose the first time you go, but of course you can always go back over and over again.
