On a recent visit we had this tasting menu.
Andalusian gazpacho, steamed king prawns & cherry ice cream
The hot and cold tapas menus have been created by Michelin starred Chef Nacho Manzano. Chef of the two star restaurant Casa Macial in Arriondas and the one star restaurant La Salgar, in Gijón. Both in the northern Spanish region of Asturias.
The open kitchen lets you see all the action as it happens and the bar has a good selection of classic and signature cocktails, cavas, gin tonicas, sherries, sidras, jugs of sangria and a few beers.
