This was the first time we were in this place, and one of us had very specific request on ingredients. The menu was then designed to our specifications and the result was great. The team had many original ideas while different culinary skills and tools...More

It is with mixed emotions that I rate this restaurant a 4, because even though, overall, the food was superb, I had a few problems. The quality of the food was incredible as well as the preparation. It does not make a lot of sense...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
It will be my birthday on 9 September when we arrive in Santiago after walking the final km of the Camino. I am hoping to find a special restaurant for a birthday dinner with my friends. This looks perfect. But we will attend evening mass, and I'm worried that we will not be able to get in after 8:30, as reservations are not possible. Perhaps reservations are important and I should try to book another restaurant? Your thoughts?

yes it is fair and I believe they do not take reservations. Good luck!
I'm hoping to be in Santiago Sat, 30 Apr. There will be just 2 of us , and i was wondering how quickly the restaurant fills up in the evening. How quickly tables turn around. Should we just turn up and wait in line, ...? how long would we wait? Thanks! Food looks amazing so I'm desperate to eat here!
