Gelonch – A culinary auteur’s adventures

This is somewhere very special for dinner. Exquisite food prepared by Robert Gelonch, one of the most inventive chefs currently trading in the city, coupled with a strong wine-list.

In the evening you have a choice – a 10 course tasting menu for € 56, or a 16 course tasting menu for € 74, or a selection of crazy little tapas for € 52. Or, if your Spanish is confident enough you could order individual portions such as carrot and orange popcorn (€ 6.50) or beef, fish and jamón ibérico raviolis in a shiitake mushroom soup (€ 8.25). Whichever route you take you will not be disappointed.

There are so many intriguing combinations in each dish – artichoke stuffed with mushrooms, trotters (pigs’ feet) with prawns – cookie-sized pizzas – that every bite is a pleasant surprise. Each component has individual flavour – but it’s the inventive combinations which delight the palate.

It may seem expensive – but it’s surprisingly good value for a memorable experience.

Now, lunch here is an altogether different proposition – chef Robert Gelonch has recently started serving Mexican antojitos, including tacos, burritos, quesadillas and enchiladas. Lunch combinations, range from two plates and a dessert for € 15.99, to a tasting menu of 6 plates and a dessert for € 24.50. Or, you can order à la carte from a range of dishes priced between € 7.50 and € 9.50. It’s a little bit strange, though fun, and it’s almost as if the place is two different restaurants.

¡Buen provecho!
