On his menu, chef Carlos Monsonís features fish from the fish market like surmullets, skates, John Dories and prawns together with local produce from Valencian gardens. The menu also offers carefully designed starters like Panet a la brasa de pulpo de roca y romescu (grilled octopus roll with romesco sauce) and Coca de verduras a la brasa, sardina y huevas de arenque (flat bread with grilled vegetables, sardines and herring roe), among others. One of the star dishes and the chef’s favorite is Oporto y judías verdes (Port and green beans). Of course, we can’t forget about dishes starring rice like Arroz de galeras y ortiguillas (squillla mantis and snakelocks anemone rice).
It is an eight-course meal with dishes from the menu that Carlos selects so that you can try the best creations on the menu. The menu is called Piano Sonata No. 32 and costs €44 per person (including tax).
