La Esperanza information
Lonely Planet review
An old-school paladar that still makes the cut, the unassuming Esperanza was being gastronomically creative long before the 2011 reforms made life for chefs a lot easier. While unspectacular from the street, the interior of this vine-covered house is a riot of quirky antiques, old portraits and refined 1940s furnishings.
The food, which is produced in a standard-sized family kitchen, includes such exquisite dishes as pollo luna de miel (chicken flambéed in rum), fish marinated in white wine, lemon and garlic, and a lamb brochette.
