Opened in 2014 by experienced restaurateurs (including the owners of Wasabi group), Buscando El Norte – close to Plaça de España – is hugely popular, particularly among locals. Its attractive and cool retro-chic décor includes wooden tables, old chequerboard-tiled floors, wooden bar with stools, exposed stone walls, and a warm hospitable ambience. You can sit at pavement tables, but miss the atmosphere indoors.
Buscando el Norte Restaurant
Open from lunchtime until late, for tapas, pintxos, small salads, specials (on the blackboard), sharing and individual plates, good puds (all 3,50€), and cocktails. Chef Gastón Macchion’s well-presented food is modern Mediterranean, with Galician influences. From the pintxos menu we tried a good cod on black squid-ink rice (3,50€), and lobster toast – tasty, but a little oily from the pesto sauce (6€). Our sharing dish of tuna tataki with guacamole, corn chips, and salad on a yellow garlic sauce, we found a little bland (10,50€).
Manager Nacho Beltrán leads a team of servers who know the food and happily recommend dishes. Fairly priced Spanish wines (just a couple of Mallorcan) are on the list. If you love the food of northern Spain, head for Buscando El Norte – but book ahead.
We love…the ambience and décor.
