Restaurant Arume: refinement for a wonderful gustatory trip


Nestled in the very building where the Spanish novelist, essayist, poet, and journalist Manuel Vázquez Montalbán was born, this is a food lover’s paradise.

A cosy place exuding joie de vivre and good humour, the Restaurant Arume (‘aroma' in Galician) specialises in very creative and innovative cuisine.

Galician-born chef Manuel Núñez, winner of the Tapa del Año 2014, deliciously mixes ingredients and textures, making perfect Galician and Catalonian fusion food. Delight in wild wolf fish, with asparagus confit and mussels cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, or a red tuna with red shrimp, green beans, and Iberian ham. Finish your dinner with a subtle sweet touch of a chocolate and hazelnut cookie with violet, currants, and mascarpone.

You can also choose from a wide menu of signature cocktails, made by Julio Hurtado, and a very nice selection of wines. Reserve well in advance: the restaurant is fully booked every night.
