Dinner at Aponiente ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Prepare to be swept away by the culinary wizardry of Ángel León, the renowned “chef of the sea”, whose restaurant is located in a charming tide mill from 1815. He is a trailblazer in every sense of the word, constantly pushing boundaries and venturing into uncharted territory. At Aponiente, he aims to broaden people’s horizons, introduce them to new concepts and raise awareness of the possibilities that lie beneath the water.

Ángel León is also a passionate advocate of sustainability, committed to reducing waste and championing renewable energies. He continually surprises diners with new ingredients, innovative techniques, and incredible combinations that reflect his philosophy of utilizing what the natural estuaries have to offer. He seeks to incorporate all parts of the seafood in his dishes, from seafood sausages to plankton and bioluminescence, and even seawater cooking and marine honey.

It is no exaggeration to say that dining at Aponiente is a magical experience that will leave you spellbound. Ángel León’s creativity, expertise, and his dedication to sustainable cooking have put him on the map as a leading innovator in the culinary world.

Located in the historic center of El Puerto de Santa María in Andalusia, the Duques de Medinaceli is a renovated 18th-century palace with an outdoor pool.

The smart rooms are classically decorated and the hotel features tapestries and paintings. There is a lounge with a large fireplace, and the hotel has marble and mosaic floors. There is an interior courtyard, chapel and library.


Lunch and Dinner (half group) at  Bagá ⭐️

By adhering to the motto Sentir Jaén (Feel Jaén), clearly visible in the diminutive kitchen, this culinary jewel continues to realize its dream, in so doing become a must for experienced foodies.

Despite its compact size, this restaurant, which takes its name from the blossom of the olive tree, boasts impressive designer detail in its decor and reflects chef Pedro Sánchez’s passion for seasonal local ingredients. These are showcased on a single tasting menu that speaks volumes for the enormous talent of this chef, who continually champions the bounty of his native region. Signature dishes here include the pumpkin fritters (buñuelos de carrueco) and the exquisite Quisquillas de Motril (local shrimp) with a partridge escabeche – a surf and turf dish that will linger long in the memory. We will have the restaurant to ourselves to fully enjoy for a spectacular private meal.


Due to its small and intimate size, we will split the group to dine at restaurant Baga. Pedro Sánchez himself has booked our group in to one of his favorite simple local restaurants, Casa Pepe, where half of the group that are not eating lunch or dinner at Baga, can enjoy a simple meal of local specialties in this friendly bar beloved by the locals.

Think tasty sirloins, tuna, and Olivier salads. Many people come to taste good cheesecakes, fruitcakes,s and torrijas. A lot of visitors order delicious sherry. Trust in Pedro.

The Parador of Jaén crowns the city from the hill of Santa Catalina. It is next to the castle, which is one of the most iconic places in the city and is listed as an Asset of Cultural Interest. In fact, the hotel is in what were once the castle’s stables.

The Parador is some 800 metres above the city of Jaén, so the views are spectacular, from both the rooms and the common areas. Inside you can enjoy the impressive vaulted ceiling in the main hall, the arches and the chandeliers.


Lunch at Noor ⭐️ ⭐️

Experience the beauty of Andalusian culture and gastronomy through the ages at Noor. Here, each season is meticulously researched and celebrated to reflect the centuries-long existence of Al-Ándalus. This unique interpretation of Andalusian cuisine takes diners on an unforgettable journey, showcasing the evolution of the Andalusian legacy through time.

Paco Morales, the mastermind behind Noor, is one of the most influential figures in gastronomy today. With his innovative approach and charismatic personality, he has brought the most exquisite aromas and flavors of Al-Ándalus into the contemporary and avant-garde realm. Morales’s expertise and dedication shine through every dish, capturing the essence of Andalusian history and elevating it to new heights.

At Noor, you will discover a true culinary marvel, where the past and present converge seamlessly to create an extraordinary dining experience. Paco Morales’s vision has created a restaurant that is not only a feast for the senses but a true celebration of Andalusian culture and history.

Dinner at Cañabota ⭐️ , Seville

Cañabota is sea and embers, it is love for the service, it is the eagerness to do the same as always and to contribute something different. In October 2016, Cañabota opened it´s doors in the city centre of Seville, a city with a solid and diverse gastronomic tradition.

Cañabota is a bar come to more, a restaurant stripped of corsets and a luxury fishmonger.

Hotel: Alfonso XIII

Built by King Alfonso XIII for the royals and VIPs attending Seville’s 1929 world fair, the Hotel Alfonso XIII is -literally- built for royalty.

They just don’t make them this way anymore… Old World luxury at its best. It’s a prime example of Andalusian design with its mosaic-covered arches, soaring towers and an Instagram-worthy courtyard where orange blossoms surround a bubbling Moorish fountain.

Lunch at Bar FM

A true hidden gem, known mainly only by locals, this seafood bar is gaining a reputation as one of the best in Spain and chefs from all over the country come to visit this secret jewel of Andalusia.

Dinner at Bardal ⭐️⭐️

Bardal is much more than Benito Gómez’s gastronomic bet in the city of Ronda.

It is a project with passion seasoned with the best professionals to form a team that manages to win the satisfaction of its diners with each smell and flavour of the best product.

Gómez designs dishes that are not what they seem and whose real meaning is discovered when tasting, in the taste. At Bardal, his new home, he manages to ensure that fresh products take center stage in his kitchen with his own stamp and without labels. The passion for cooking surrounds the restaurant from top to bottom

Set in a privileged location in the city centre, next to the iconic New Bridge, is the Parador de Ronda, above the old Town Hall. It is in an impressive enclave, a 120-metre-deep cleft with unique views over the River Tagus that you can see  from the terrace or while swimming in the pool.

saturday, JUNE 24

Lunch at Tohqa

In ‘TohQa’ restaurant everything is different, beginning with that name that refers to the rough stone that forms the albariza lands with the grapes that work miracles in the Jerez setting sprout, and to which Eduardo Pérez has put an Andalusian accent.

With these backdrops, it is sought that the prominence falls on vegetables, fish and meat cooked on the coals.
