      1. I also had a really good meal there this week. The piquillo peppers stuffed with oxtail are incredible. The restaurant suffers from a location problem and was maybe 1/3 full.

        1. I chose this as my birthday restaurant about one month ago. My wife and I decided to go for the tasting menu with generally excellent results. They started us out with some tapas - some serrano ham, fresh marinated anchovies on toasts, and another item I can't recall right now. Following this was the oxtail in piquillo peppers, then squid in its ink. The fish course was the only misstep in the procession - snapper baked in a salt crust which picked up way too much salt in the preparation - ruining what was otherwise a potentially good dish. After that came the suckling pig. Finally the dessert was an assortment of three - a cheesecake (manchego?), chocolate mousse with a lemon sauce (it worked), and one other sweet I can't recall. We drank a wonderful '96 rioja riserva and then some glasses of a sweet sherry recommended by our waiter with dessert. On the whole a wonderful meal which I'd do again. Just beware the salty snapper.
