This restaurant has been the opening of the year in Madrid, and likely in all of Spain. For us personally, this is one the best meals we’ve had this year, and goes straight to our list of favorite restaurant in Spain. We already had a mind blowing meal at Picones de Maria back when Jorge Muñoz was working there before opening OSA, so we knew we were probably going to have an even better experience this time, and even more so with Sara Peral (who also worked at Mugaritz like Jorge), but it surpassed any expectations we had. First of all, the place is spectacular, it’s actually a villa converted into a restaurant, where the interior and deco is absolutely stunning, with a little patio to have a welcome drink, and also upstairs, next to the impressive cellar you will find an area to enjoy a glass of champagne before getting seated. Once seated, the service is perfect, good timings, not too serious and not too casual either, making the whole experience just super enjoyable. The wine list is impressive, with a good mix of natural wines and conventional wines to satisfy all types of palates. And the food is just out of this world, super well executed dishes, generally very minimalistic but still innovative and with high cooking techniques, and overall really our kind of style. Some of the dishes we had were the following:
* Chocolate, red peppers & cod pil pil.
* Red mullet and amazake in tempura.
* Anago cooked on its skin.
* Wagyu tongue cooked three ways.
* Wild boar sando.
* Grouper with its pil pil.
* Quail in grape leaf “a la royal”.
* Blood orange kakigori.
* “Cabello de ángel” (pumpkin strands in syrup) and raib yogurt.
This were just some dishes of the 21-course long tasting menu, and honestly every single one of them was fantastic, such great flavors and textures.
A fantastic experience which we look forward to repeat at least once a year from now on.
