One of the true strengths of this establishment is the quality gourmet cuisine that can be enjoyed not only by guests staying at the hotel but by the general public as well. The hotel restaurant is named MEP, after the initials of the hotel, and it fosters an intimate ambience in its dining room, which can seat up to around 35 guests at a time. It is recommended in both the 2007 and 2011 Michelin Guides! It is decorated in a classic but sophisticated style, as exemplified by the pretty wall adorned with beige and blue Italian fabric. The specialities on the menu include homemade foie gras, prawns with fine rice noodles, swordfish with a vinaigrette, and fruit carpaccio with an infusion of ripe fruits. The wine list features about 40 vintages from Spain and elsewhere around the world. Clearly, great attention has been paid to certain details, like the muscat and brandy atomisers on the table that enable you to add a real gourmet touch to your dish. At lunchtime, the restaurant has a menu for £17 that changes daily. It offers a choice of 5 different starters, 5 main dishes, and 5 desserts. Alternatively, you can choose your meal à la carte for approximately £27. There are 14 starters to choose from, as well as 5 fish dishes, 5 meat dishes, and about 8 desserts. The cafe next to reception is open from 11:00am until midnight, except on Friday and Saturday, when it stays open until 2:00am. Here you can order drinks accompanied with a sandwich or some tapas. Breakfast is served under the glass roof in the lobby, which is a really appealing place to start the day. It consists of a generous buffet of fruit juices (including natural orange juice), fruit, cold cuts, cereals, yoghurts, and hot dishes, which are prepared to order. It costs around £13. Room service offers a final catering option 24 hours a day. You can order drinks and ask for dishes selected from the restaurant menu to be brought to your room.
