Great price for Michelin Star cuisine. The new “Great Silk and Spice Road” menu offers remarkable interpretations of traditional dishes from the area and era. Unique elaborate dishes with a great variety of flavors and textures, everything tasted amazing. Restaurant staff was helpful and attentive, service was impeccable.

This was our 3rd visit to Gaytan and chef Javier is a truly different kind of chef. This time the menu was built around a trip from Asia to Europe with dishes that were too good looking to eat and with unique tastes that make us smile in happiness. One of the best restaurants we’ve been to and a place we’ll definitely come back to soon.

I really don’t have anything to fault with this restaurant. We came for New Year’s Eve. It was very expensive, and all the ingredients and service levels were top quality. The food was good. But... it wasn’t wow. Honestly everything was very well delivered except for dessert which was a little boring - but it didn’t feel particularly special or creative - just very high quality. A very nice well constructed, well presented meal. I wanted a little something special but can’t complain on any singular point.

We really enjoyed eating here, the food, the service and the experience were all really enjoyable though by the end the flavours were beginning to merge!
The staff were great and explained each course but their accents speaking in English meant we lost quite a lot of their explanation and had to ask each time for different parts to be repeated before we got it! The kitchen staff are watching you, sometimes we felt to see if you liked their concoctions but more usually to get the timing of the next course spot on, which they did. They were true professionals. The kitchen itself is very modern and you sit around and facing it though there are some places where viewing proceedings would be more challenging from behind a pillar - try and reserve a good view, it's worth it.
We have the full tasting menu which was extensive with small snacks before dishes with chicken satay, scallop, white beans, mushroom soup, sweet potato with a mussel sauce, crab, red mullet, Peruvian beef, wonderful lamb and two delicious sweets (apologies for my pitiful descriptions but I just recall the headline ingredient in each dish!). There was a beautiful selection of bread served as well which could have been disastrous as they offered and we would have eaten more but sensibly declined. The presentation and detail was fantastic and included not only the food but the serving dishes and cutlery which came in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. Gaytan's selection of wines accompanied the food superb and I would recommend having this rather than choosing one or two wines yourself. The wine pairing cost 50 euro's and dinner 101 euro's each.
Thanks to other contributors who provided help on finding the restaurant. The entrance is at 205 Principe de Vergara and down an alleyway that is on the left hand side of a car park. There is a smartly dressed doorman waiting to receive you at the from door when you arrive. There is a sign on a street lamp-post that says "Gaytan" so you shouldn't miss it. When we were ready to leave, we asked the staff to get us a taxi and when one was there, they told us so there was no waiting around outside.
A great and very memorable experience and I hope we will be back sometime.
