The whole spirit of the restaurant is concentrated in its name: Estimar (in English, “esteem”) loves the sea (“mar” in Spanish), celebrating the alliance of respect and love for the products of the nearby Mediterranean. From the kitchen, Andalusian chef Rafael Zafra, previously at El Bulli, once the best restaurant in the world, offers a seasonal menu according to different cooking methods. Whether cured, steamed, grilled or in a marinade, fish, shellfish and crustaceans are deliciously enhanced.
The splendour of the slipper lobster carpaccio with grilled onions competes with the langoustine one, lightly seared in steamed seaweed. Meat lovers will revel in the “without fishbones” section of the menu, with delicious slices of ham – Iberian, of course – and Japanese wagyu beef. To finish in style, choose the tangerine cheesecake, a tribute to the country of citrus!
