Situated on the 1st floor, this small, a la carte restaurant has 9 tables and a capacity that can seat up to 35 people.


The ground floor of the restaurant is our gallery. When our fathers, Jaime and Sira, opened a new exhibition, they always invited the artist and the team to have dinner in this room. After dinner and the odd bottle of wine, the artists left us a dedication on the table cloths or serviettes, sometimes done with Bic pens and sometimes done with burnt bottle corks. This room is the soul of our house and on its walls are exhibited not only these works of art but also the memory of the life of our fathers.
