Wooden barstools boast curved, hand-carved details reminiscent of traditional Moroccan furniture adding a modern Mediterranean touch to this bar. Hand-stamped tiles introduce a Spanish style element that keeps with Mediterranean-inspired theme.
This mid-century modern kitchen and dining room features Spanish inspiration using a bold, black-and-white backsplash and blue perimeter cabinets. Four contemporary bar chairs sit at the warm walnut kitchen island with a marble countertop.
A jewel box located within the Paradisus resort, world-renowned, Michelin-starred Spanish chef Martin Berasategui's Gastro Bar is definitely worth a trip whether you are staying at the resort or simply looking for an unforgettable dining experience. The (recommended) tasting menu gives you the full flavor of chef Berasategui's creative vision for Basque cuisine, though here melded with the flavors of Mexico. The restaurant embraces its surroundings and offers an incredible array of wonderful Mexican wines that you aren't likely to find outside of Mexico including a delicious chardonnay and shiraz along with French and Italian picks. Settle in for a long, enjoyable evening of surprises, because the skilled chefs and wait staff take their time, allowing guests to indulge in that rarest of things in the modern world: a slow, contemplative, thrilling appreciation of ingredients, technique and presentation. Berasategui is a magician with tastes and textures, turning an egg with a liquid herb salad into a characteristically surprising combination of savory, herbacious flavor and silky texture. Nothing is expected, from the lobster ravioli with coffee foam to the jalapeno foam, black garlic ice cream, cucumber mayonnaise and cod fritter that our waiter offers careful instructions on how to taste and experience. What might feel stuffy in another high-end restaurant feels like an communal adventure at Gastro Bar, informed by the gentle guidance offered by the enthusiastic, attentive sommelier and wait staff. In other words, don't miss it.
