Then Al Quimia will appeal. It is a modern, tasteful restaurant where the emphasis is on providing an experience to guests - with tables having plenty of space from the others and no attempt made to hurry you. A good thing too as there are just two choices for dinner - both are tasting menus at either 75 or 110 euros for the meal of 6 or 9 courses. There is an option to pair wines with each menu or simply to buy off a wine list. With the innovation, it really is a case of sitting back and experiencing each course. The chef adds his own touch to each, creatively with, for example a mussel shell made of pasta with squid ink - and on the whole it works, well and is on a par with some of the better London restaurants. Quality over quantity in all regards too. The food was nice and the range of tastes in the menu also enjoyable. Service was as good as you would expect at a top level restaurant. So why not 5 out of 5? On the whole we enjoyed other meals more on this trip and generally - a Quinta, Henrique Leis both excellent, also Willie's from previous visits all would rank higher for us in terms of the overall quality. Is an acquired taste - unlike the others, this is somewhere where with the two menus on offer you need to be in the right mood for something like this. Very much enjoyed the pairing wines too. Yet some of the courses a bit too fussy, trying too much to be creative (I'd prefer to eat olives as olives rather than "faux" olives with liquid inside for example). Value? Tad too high. We actually ended up sharing one tasting menu and that was fine for both of us - worked well.
