A rare experience on the costa tropical ... a restaurant with Michelin ambitions and unusual choices. We were recommended it by a local who runs a delicatessen supply business. It's very expensive by Almuñecar standards, so we went for the 4-course, 30-euro lunch menu. Two choices for most courses, and four for the main, so between two of us we shared most of them. A pretty little amuse-bouche was followed by fairly average croquetas. The ajo blanco and salad with ham and goat's cheese were both excellent though. Mains were superb; my slice of merluza was beautifully fresh and cooked to absolute flaky perfection, with a selection of al dente vegetables. The pularda (chicken) was also very good with a pleasant light spiciness. Dessert: a crème brûlée that wasn't really (whipped cream with red fruits, glazed with sugar), and a "magnum firmum" (ice cream coated with excellent dark chocolate). Free chupitos of patxaran served with the coffee finished us off.
They have a quite extensive wine list, but there is minimal information about the wines (the names and nothing else). Service is professional and friendly though, so I'm sure they'd advise if asked. We enjoyed a Somontano chardonnay at only 15 euros. Overall, well worth a visit for a special occasion; it's a cut above everywhere else in Almuñecar.
Note: portions are generous for this type of restaurant, so if eating a la carte I would advise sharing one dish between two for each course.
