We cannot fully express how special this meal was. Francisco, our chef-host-local food guide is exceptionally warm, funny, intelligent, and clearly a skilled gourmand.

I feel lucky that I was able to secure a reservation at this true local gem. Francisco makes you feel as if you are visiting a friend’s house for a local dinner party. It is all about the food and ingredients, not a fancy kitchen....More

Strongly recommend the place for the tasting menu! We tasted more than 15 different types of regional tapas ans little dishes. Further some 5 wines! Chef who owns the place was very nice and knowledgable about the food.

If you can, plan to dine at this little gem. Sure, the meal is a demonstration of products available for purchase, but what an extraordinary way to sample things -- and what a lovely meal! I'll never forget it.

For the restaurant, because the meal has many courses, it lasts for a few hours. For this reason Francisco tells guests what time they need to arrive. I think we were asked to arrive at about 7pm
