With only 7 days this trip, which would you keep, which would you skip, which would you add? (already been to Sergi A's places one time too many, and I couldn't stand Santceloni without Santi, and to many of the old school tapas places (casa labra and so on))

    Restaurants. From your list I'd pick three assorted experiences:
    * O Pazo. An unforgettable seafood experience.
    * DiverXO, well-deserved 3 Michelin stars.
    * Sacha is a bistro which never goes wrong, its pickled oysters, its marrowbone with sauce…

    Tapas bars:
    * Either Laredo or Catapa, both in the same area.
    * Puerta 57, Barra Cibeles. Excellent for classic tapas.
    * La Venencia for sherry tasting.

      Thanks! La Venencia never gets old(er), of course.

        I tried to get a reservation at DiverXO and they booked into September...

        :-(

          I'm guessing they're not releasing most seats in the new hotel location yet.
