Best for Trendiness - Expert review of The Mix

Super-trendy seaside dining.

This bold black-wood and marble restaurant stands atop of austere ash-black granite rocks, over which gusty wisps of Atlantic sea spray over outdoor diners. The Mix is for those who like their restaurants to be style-led, statement-making slick and achingly hip.

Food and drink: 

The food – which does appear to be an after-thought to most of the stick-thin, body-beautiful diners – is best described as Eurasian fusion. Presentation is a major focus with the dishes packing big flavours in the forms of spicy salads, seafood pastas and hearty meat dishes.

Recommended dishes: 

I do like the duck doubled with pistachio, pumpkin and ginger, which is nice mix of crispy sweet meat and tangy vegetables.

Ambience: 

This summer there was a lot of rubbernecking, Carrera shades and toned torsos outside on the poolside tables. By night, local DJ, Lyl Marta Liliana Barros spins smooth house tunes to diners. Things can get pretty wild on the weekend when parties kick off in the hotel's On The Rocks bar.

Service: 

Pretty seamless and polite whenever I've been.

Location: 

Right on the water with nothing but the ocean to look at.

Price advice: 

Mains are around 20-25 euros.

Tables to book: 

If it's warm be sure to get a poolside table outside.
