Very close to Plaza de España, in a street full of restaurants, we found one that stands out among the others for its quality and style the Treze restaurant serves updated traditional food made with excellent raw material and very well presented. A personal and professional project with lots of attention to detail, professionalism and good work.
Cosy and decorated with ecru colours, it has two rooms, one at street level and a second one downstairs, vaulted and more intimate that you can book for an event or for a special dinner at no extra cost.
To begin the evening you get to choose between different homemade breads they put a small bowl with extra virgin olive oil for dipping. Then comes an appetizer, for example a spectacular squid croquette squid in its ink with a great texture. Starters are very attractive and you can order half portions, which is ideal to try more things. Besides, they are served individually, a detail worth mentioning. Among the starters there are mushroom ravioli and foie soup or grilled white asparagus with wild asparagus and slices of Wagyu. As a first course, we recommend sticky rice with prawns, skate stewed with mussels and white wine, roasted pigeon with black pudding or a spectacular crispy suckling pig that will remain in your memory. To wash the food down, they serve wines selected by sommelier and 2010 Gold Nose winner Daniel Roset.
Leave room for the homemade desserts such as creme brulee with lemon thyme ice cream, a surprising mix of creamy white chocolate with violets and raspberry sorbet or a fun ‘those wonderful years’ dessert with cotton candy, gum and glue. Eating dinner a la carte is around 40 euros. They also serve a delicious lunch menu for 13 euros and a tasting menu for 40 euros.
Treze is quality, style and good service for demanding foodies.
