Good but more one than two Michelin stars: Restaurant Bardal (2. January 2020)

In the little town of Ronda which is famous for it’s Greek-style white houses and is located quite a bit up in the mountains, there is more to see than just the atmosphere. They also have a Michelin-starred restaurant with two Michelin stars (definitely not something you’d expect there)! The Bardal requires a down payment […]

Fair for a quick stop: Café Puerta 2 (2. January 2020)

Fair for a quick stop: Café Puerta 2 (2. January 2020)

Given, almost nothing was open in the early morning, I was happy to stumble upon the Café Puerta 2 (named like that due to its vicinity to the second gate of the bull fight arena) because it was rather cold outside. The place is very simple but the waitress is friendly and swift in serving […]

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

The El Disparate was recommended by the Guide Michelin 2020 app. When I arrived there I was rather surprised as the restaurant is part of a hostel. Now, prejudice or not, I did not expect a restaurant recommended by the Guide Michelin to be located in a hostel. However, the fact that I got the […]

An outstanding gem I randomly encountered: Restaurant Recoveco (1. January 2020)

Sometimes, you randomly find a little gem and the Recoveco was exactly that! While actually being on the way to the hotel, I passed the Recoveco which looked super appealing, so I decided to have a late lunch here instead. As an amuse bouche, “blue potato and pork belly” was served. The pork belly wasn’t […]

Lender of last resort – only if you have to: Love Horno Artesano (1. January 2020)

Lender of last resort – only if you have to: Love Horno Artesano (1. January 2020)

The Love Horno Artesano was one of the few places which was open in the morning on January 1st, so it was the place of choice for a brief breakfast. I went for a “bocadillo de tomato y anchoas con queso y jamón iberico” (EUR 4.35) which was actually quite okay. What wasn’t so okay […]

Disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner: Restaurant Azahar @ Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza (31. December 2019)

Disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner: Restaurant Azahar @ Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza (31. December 2019)

Let’s say, I had high hopes for the “NYE dinner” (EUR 100.00) incl. wines (EUR 35.00) but I was not entirely happy with the experience. The starter consisted of “pickled scallop in grapefruit with herring caviar” which looked nice but frankly, pickled scallop isn’t really my thing. Now, before we continue, I have to make […]

Absolutely decent breakfast experience: AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Córdoba (31. December 2019)

As bad as the experience the previous evening was in terms of service and all of it, the breakfast buffet in exactly the same location is quite enjoyable. They offer a tiny bit of everything ranging from fresh fruit … … to bacon … … pastry … … cakes and jam … … cereals, tomato […]

Quite a horrible dinner experience: AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Córdoba (30. December 2019)

When you are too lazy to leave the hotel, then usually dining at the hotel premise turns out to be a good idea. In this case, I’m not entirely sure. I went down at around 7:40 pm to try to get some food from the kitchen in the AC Lounge restaurant. Now, there was absolutely […]
