It takes a little while to reach a restaurant which, although it was recently opened, is already a top-rated one in Granada. El Mirador de Tato is in the Alamo del Marques Square.
Placette. It sounds so familiar to me, with its echoes of childhood games and endless afternoons. To joy and freshness. Time suspended. It was time to suspend. The square Alamo del Marques is large and peaceful. El Mirador de Tato serves outside only. To start the day with breakfast, it opens at half past eight in morning. The kitchen opens at half past eight in the morning and closes at eleven at night.
After having enjoyed the first Momentos Alhambra concert in El Mirador de Aixa with Rocio Marquez, and Broquio, I was there on Saturday. From the lookout to the lookout. Different views but equally impressive, from the Nasrid alhambra to our Renaissance Cathedral.
Because the Mirador De Tato overlooks the city's heart, The future is in the background. The PTS, the unique architecture of Parque de las Ciencias, and Campo Baeza. The Vega, too. The pantry of a Granada who is passionate about local products and kilometer zero.
A short, well-balanced menu is something I love more and more about eating. I find it difficult to follow a menu with 50 options. Although the El Mirador de Tato menu is short, it's very suggestive. A raf tomatoes salad with avocado was our first course. It was amazing how the tomato tastes just like a tomato. How do you know? It is an absolute joy to eat raf. It is very hard and quite whole. When you bite into it, it crunches. The avocado at the right stage of ripeness.
I was too quick to judge. We tried an appetizer with salmorejo and Serrano Ham, and then we tasted Gonzalo Castro extra-virgin olive oil. It was very mild.
I debated the choice of main course between the sticky rice...of oxtail and the oxtail, which was one of my weaknesses. With a little resentment, I chose the latter. What if my decision ended up being a need and I couldn't have it? Would that mean I was unable to eat the meat I chose?
When the dish arrived, I wanted to leap for joy and hug the waiter. He was young and well-prepared. El Mirador de Tato's service is exceptional: speed, diligence and friendliness. It was a wonderful treat! It was delicious! It was delicious, but it contained a lot of meat. I ate it with a lot of greed and embarrassment. Or, fatigue, as they say here.
Pear ravioli and goat cheese were both very good and perfectly al dente. The matured old cowsteak, which was very attractive, will be left for my next visit. The cheese boards with red grape jam, which flew past other tables, were the most striking thing I saw. Although I do eat artichokes, I have eaten quite a few of them in the past weeks. I also love raspberry gazpacho made with beef jerky, feta cheese and other ingredients.
It has been only a week since my last visit and I still fantasize about returning. Sunsets should be beautiful. It must be beautiful. The food is delicious. El Mirador de Tato is a place you should keep in mind. It will provide a lot of interesting stories.
