Enrique Becerra

Updated November 2017

One of my favourites, where you can find traditional Andalusian dishes prepared with local market fresh ingredients, under the careful eye of restaurateur and author of cookbooks, food & wine guides (and mystery novels!) Enrique Becerra.

As well as fabulous tapas there’s an excellent selection of wines – especially sherries – by the glass. Staff are professional without being stuffy, and are great at recommending interesting food and wine pairings. Some of my favourite dishes are the asparagus flamenquín (breaded & fried rolled aubergine with asparagus & cheese inside) garlicky grilled strips of beef  “Señor Marquéz”, and filo-wrapped salt cod with ajo blanco.

Since expanding the downstairs tapas area to include both the bar and (ex) dining room, tapas have become more prominent and the tapas menu is more innovative and varied. Be sure to check the daily specials. There are also two dining rooms upstairs and, if you prefer the restaurant menu downstairs, no problem. Your table will set for full restaurant service.
