Tel: 34 91 575 2866's insider take:

Architect Ignacio García de Vinuesa has created a memorable visual experience at this tapas and cocktail bar: Recessed lamps emit a warm, romantic light that dances off walls in browns, greens, and oranges. Chef Elías Murciano's seasonal Mediterranean menu changes frequently and is extremely inventive: Think artichoke soup with mullet and vanilla oil or a "carpaccio" of figs and Campari gelatin. You can sit at the informal tapas bar or sit down for a full meal, but it is the former that perhaps best exposes you to the modern concept of the place, where you'll find trendsters galore. Murciano's wine list is also excellent.
