Bartolomea

Updated August 2017

Almost exactly five years after opening the very popular La Brunilda, husband and wife team Diego & Esperanza opened this second restaurant with a completely new menu, just around the corner next to the Arenal Market. Bartolomea Resto & Grill does feel more like a restaurant than Brunilda, but has the same attention to quality and detail. It’s pleasantly light and airy inside, with big windows and light wood furnishings. And, as always, you can expect great service the well-trained team.

Favourite dishes include the sea bass ceviche, the croquetas del día (in this case cabrales cheese and apple) and the perfectly grilled pluma Ibérica.  There’s a nice selection of salads too. It’s a shortish menu, with starters, fish & seafood and meat dishes offered as either tapas or raciones (small or big plates). I was also happy to see the revival of one of my fave desserts from La Brunilda’s early days – the watermelon granita with stawberries, basil gelée and passion fruit ice cream.
