The restaurant is just 5 min taxi drive from the city centre in a nice location. It’s discrete and cozy inside with a very smart playing with lights, that makes you focus on the dishes.
After some hesitation we have chosen the Festival menu (215€).
Firstly amuse bouches were served, all with exceptional tastes and character,
followed by several starters. First came an orange salad with 19 different ingredients. Spring pickles, Charcoal grilled green pees with emulsion of its pod and vanilla, Mackerel with white garlic. The fifth course was asparagus dish with sea anemone. My wife normally does not like asparagus but this was sublime and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
After a little break the main dishes were served us. Marinated prawn, langoustine with sagebrush, Semi cured hake, steamed sea bass, Smoked duck breast and veal pastrami. Every course was prepared with care and attention each one with it’s own special details - without any repeat- and incredible flavours.
We have requested if they could change one dessert to “A trip to Havana” signature dessert from the classic menu? They said “Sure” and made our evening perfect.
Very difficult to try to describe our experience in writing. From start to finish everyone was working to make each and every guests special. From the first moment, we have noticed the professionalism of the staff. They were attentive and quick to response every question or order. That night Josep Roca came to the tables and greeted their guests.
The food was one of the most amazing we have ever tried, I am still feeling the taste of the pastrami and the Elderberry dessert. The whole experience was exceptional, every bite, the service and the style. We have reserved our table 11 month ahead it was more than worth the nearly one year waiting time. We would go back tomorrow!
