Pilar's philosophy is to have a wine space focused on the locals, with a big comfy sofa, dim lighting, wooden chairs, and a living room feeling in the restaurant. Oltra has a huge passion for small and artisan wine producers, with special attention to indigenous grape varieties and lesser-known Spanish regions. It took my attention that she wrote the name of the winemakers next to the wine names, a touch that I like. Overall, the wine list is...
