Directions to Los Patios de Beatas
The low exposed ceiling beams of the ground floor bar area give a cosy and historic feel. Here you can sit at small tables or around old wine barrels and order tapas and snacks or dishes from the menu. This opens into the tasting room and vinoteca, where hundreds of outstanding wines vie for your attention. Los Patios has a membership scheme for wine enthusiasts, which comes with a charge card. The automatic dispensers carry a selection of wines for tasting. They will dispense specific small amounts suitable for tasting and deduct the costs from your card. So you can conduct your own tasting from twenty-four different selected wines, at your own pace and discretion, thanks to the clever technology of the wine vendors. The selection changes monthly and this system is pretty much unique in the city. For non-members the sommelier will happily help those who would like to taste a selection, and of course, any of the wines tasted here can be bought at the counter of the wine shop.
The main dining area is housed in the covered patio of the adjacent building, and has a superb stained glass 19th-century skylight covering the area. There are smaller more intimate dining spaces at either side. On the first floor there are smaller private dining rooms and a space adapted for small performances, meetings, events or private functions.
The cuisine is a familiar array of classic dishes and ingredients, but everywhere they are reconceived in terms of the garnish, the seasonings and the accompaniments. Something as simple as fried Calamares is transformed by a tempura flavoured with coriander, fennel and Szechuan pepper, served on a lime and coriander hummus. The ceviche of rock bass comes with a tomato relish and mango dressing. Salmon marinaded in gin is served with lime and mint gel. Green salad with fried feta cheese and shitake mushrooms, or a seafood carpaccio delicately dressed with a spiced guacamole and pine nuts: elements from Asia and the Carribean reframe and reanimate the strong bedrock of Spanish classical tropes, making for a menu at once comforting, modern and refreshing. There are classic meats such as suckling pig, and lamb, filets of exquisite Iberian free-range pork, chops of young lamb served with quinoa, mint and grenadine pearls. You can choose also from two set tasting menus, and add a selection of four glasses of different matched wines.
So much choice of where to dine, in splendidly atmospheric surroundings, an unparalleled choice of wine, and modern classic Spanish cuisine at the top of its game. A combination guaranteed to please the gastronaut and bibulous alike.
