I normally do not like cold soup but this was an exception. It was a delicious creamy combination and probably the best leek soup I’ve had.

Sea urchin and lobster paella with saffron aioli and snow peas. I would normally have preferred my paella with a crusty crispy bottom (socarrat). However this version came with uni and that is a combination which is hard to resist!

US 'family reserve' ribeye with charred leeks and Romesco sauce. Tender yet well charred on the outside.

Similar to my previous post on burnt toast which came with the carabinero, the octopus tasted burnt as well. We felt disappointed not just because the octopus was burnt but that the kitchen had obviously not been listening to our feedback.
*
I do want to note that we were subsequently served complimentary desserts. Thank you very much for the thought but it would have been better to solve the issue at hand, serve the octopus again for example. We would have preferred to be able to taste the octopus for what it should be.
*
I typically do not post such negative comments unless I feel strongly that constructive feedback must be given, which in this case it is necessary as we were served burnt food 3 times!

I had this during my recent lunch visit and I was very keen for my husband and mum to try it. The flesh of the carabinero shrimp had a naturally sweet flavour which was very different from the shrimps which we are used to eating.
*
We were advised to squeeze the innards of the shrimp head out and use the bread to soak up the oil (with the yummy innards and all).
*
This was when our dinner started to go downhill. The bread was burnt and everything tasted bitter. We asked for another serving of bread requesting that it be not toasted or lightly toasted. It came toasted just the same and burnt as well (although less so than before). You can imagine our surprise to be served burnt bread twice. The comment which came back from the kitchen was that the bread must be served toasted. I get it but surely not burnt?? We were even more surprised to be charged for the extra burnt bread!
*
I think good service should be commended but equally poor service should be improved upon and criticisms received constructively. I truly hope this was a one-off. *

Served with piquilo (pepper) mayo. Tasty but a little too cheesy. The slightly spicy piquilo mayo gave it contrast and helped to reduce the richness of the croqueta.

With jalapeño ponzu, salmon roe and pickled ginger flower.

I didn't manage to try them the last time round at lunch as a table ordered more than 20 the night before! Now that I've had them, I can totally understand why they were so popular! They were so creamy and sweet 😋.
*
They were named such because they were cultivated specially for the Russian gourmands, specifically the Russian Tsars.

Served on a crispy thin toast which gave it a nice crunch. Thanks Chef @carlosmontobbio for sending this our way.

This was not on the lunch set menu but @blueskiescottonclouds had it during a prior visit and loved it! Chef @carlosmontobbio kindly indulged us by letting us try it - thank you so much. I love cherries so needless to say this was my favourite dessert!

Beer ice cream 😍, Banana textures and Caramel sauce. If you prefer sweet desserts, this would be an ideal choice. I especially loved the beer ice cream 😋.

Lovely dessert. Light and not too sweet - what an ideal way to end our lunch.

These tasted of berries and were very refreshing as plate cleansers.
