Risotto al Nero di Seppia
Rice with Ceps & Boletus
Sushi Oxtail with coffee
Arroz Meloso with Fresh Goat Cheese
The seasonal carte and the enormous selections of rices, seasonal wild fresh fish, meats and game are simply topnotch, making the underground trip worth your while.
Highly recommended are the Shellfish Paella, the Alicantine Arroz Caldoso with Lobster and their traditionally regional Tapas.
