Rotisserie cooking and traditional Castilian breathes air. Among their kitchens, and wood oven, it is made a careful selection of dishes that combine seasonal produce from the garden with the juiciest of meats, not to mention a variety of fresh fish and seafood, fresh from the market. The flavors are enveloped by the rustic setting, warm materials and contemporary decor of the restaurant.
