LÚ COCINA Y ALMA One Michelin Star

August 2021

Chef Juanlu Fernandez, began his career has an artisan pastry chef and then moved through the many different kitchens of the great chefs of Spain. Exploring his passion for French cuisine and merging it with the traditional Andalusian cuisine of his home town of Jerez de la Frontera.

The visual impact in the restaurant is very much to the fore here, with the kitchen standing in the centre of the dining room, enabling the chefs to enjoy a much greater interaction with guests and waiters alike. Chef Juanlu has a great respect for seasonal products. This is seen in his menus with their modern version of French cooking using local products with a nod to the traditional Andalucian recipes of his childhood. The dining room only has seven tables for sixteen people.

The restaurant now has one Michelin star.
