Buena pregunta la que se hacen en este veterano y confortable restaurante ubicado en el madrileño barrio de Chueca: ¿hambre, apetito o ganas? Y a las tres puede responder con sus platos basados en el producto de temporada. En los fogones, el genio de Iñaki y Unai Camba, padre e hijo, que derrochan talento en cada creación, ya sea en la carta o en el menú degustación que hacen según lo que haya en el mercado el día que vas.

La cosa va tal que así: Iñaki Camba agarra una silla y se te sienta en la mesa, y te pregunta si tienes hambre, apetito o ganas. Así ve cómo 'respiras'. Y entonces te recita la carta. Y te propone hacerte un menú completo a partir de un plato principal que será lo mejorcito que haya comprado ese día. Y te vuelve a preguntar qué estilo de plato prefieres: "¿natural, clásico, moderno, sofisticado?". ¡Esto es interactividad y no internet! Por eso, allí cada comensal vive su propia experiencia. Ninguna se parece a otra.

INSIDER tip

Aquí encontrarás vanguardia y tradición: Iñaki es un clásico que vive por y para el producto y su hijo Unai ha trabajado con Arzak, Berasategui, los Roca...

    Decor can be better. We waited almost 30 mins for the restaurant to open although lunch was booked at 1:30pm. But this is Spain, lunch proper don't start till 2;30pm. The food was excellent except for the cod fish main. Servings are small so you can order more although the chef kind of dictates what he wants you to eat. So go wanting to be surprised by the food and have no who about it.

    In my opiinion this is the best restaurant in the world. Iñaki will sit down with you and plan your individual menu with special wines for each course. Every course was better than the last. My favorite was the aspic of seafood.

    Personalised service from a chef with character, unique and interesting cuisine and nicely decorated like a family run style restaurant. Expect to pay over €100 for two people, (menus are either €60 or €80 per person) especially if you ask the chef for recommendations, but he will make sure that you then get dishes that match your preferences!

    Food is fairly good and experience with Iñaki also very nice. However they kept us waiting for our table for more than 45 mins what we found too much for a pre-booked table.

    The welcome given by the chef himself and the fact that he sat with us to discuss various possibilities for the food and wines, our likes and dislikes etc was impressive. I shall be a regular.
