MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Nothing is unintentional at this multi-level restaurant that starts with Slate Wine Bar on the first floor; a cushy salon on the second storey, where guests are greeted with a drink, before going up to the third level to discover a glass-enclosed kitchen and breezy dining room just beyond.

Chef Danny Lledó is the visionary behind this focused Valencian culinary machine and his dishes are as pretty to look at as they are delicious to eat. This is confident cooking that results in inventions like tonyina tartare with citrus "caviar" and a creamy coconut milk-mustard-sauce. "Bossa de Captaire", or beggar's purse, with suckling pig and foie gras in apple confit and brown butter may then be trailed by lobster, prawn, and cuttlefish all of which garnish the paella de la duquessa de denia. Served in the classic wide-bottomed pan, this house specialty makes a welcome break from the more formal menu.

For dessert, the "Bresquilla del segle XXI" is a pastry cream-filled doughnut posed atop a sauce of finely diced peaches; while Xocolat, also dubbed the chocolate temptation, certainly lives up to its moniker.

Slate Wine Bar, located just below, is a lovely, light-on-the-wallet dining delight.
