Enjoyed the experience however some dishes didn't work for me, maybe trying to be too clever with food but he has 3 stars and a long waiting list so he's clearly doing something right. The restaurant itself was stark, a little cold and lacked ambiance, i understand the deal here is all about the food but a little background music... More

Pub grub not bad though. Too cheap, need to raise their game! No need to reserve a table. Eat as much as you can on Friday nights.

This is certainly not an everyday dinner destination but a very special treat worth every penny. As someone already mentioned below, it's as much of an intellectual experience as it is a culinary one. Quique's new season's menu was a spectacle in the best possible sense. We left really full so you do get actually fed too, in case you're... More

Occasionally there are experiences or meals that truly surprise excite and inspire you - this was one of those occasions. From start to finish every single moment was a life affirming joy! The service, the drinks the wine list and of course the food. Every single dish was thought provoking and astonishing. We particularly loved the locally sourced & unusual... More

Our lunch here consisted of 26 different bites arranged in six acts. This was cutting edge cuisine--pushing the envelope--and as much a visual and intellectual experience as a culinary one. Presentation and form were paramount and we tasted everything manchego stones (the cheese in a black skin) to dry octopus to a dried and crushed tomato to a fish lemon... More

We had lunch at QD recently. It's not the sort of place you just stop in. Reservations are required and it may take months to get one. It's the sort of place where you simply surrender to the chef's imagination, and what an imagination! Don't expect to make many choices. Just surrender. We had dish after dish that excited the...

This is not only a restaurant, this is at the same time a marvellous circus, and for free ! Top of the evening for me were the large ice blocks in the urinoir.
