Best for Gourmets - Expert review of DiverXO

Exciting cooking by young Michelin-starred chef.

David Munoz has caused quite a stir on the Madrid restaurant scene. With a Michelin star already under his belt, he is obviously destined for great things. Although he moved DiverXO to a larger site in 2009, you need to book well in advance. They take reservations up to 30 days ahead, from 9.30 in the morning. 

Food and drink: 

Expect a lot of Asian, particulaly Chinese, touches. There is no a la carte menu, only tasting menus of seven, eight or nine courses. Dishes might include cold green coconut soup with macadamia nuts, chili crab and rabbit dim sum with five carrots.

Ambience: 

Actually quite relaxed for this level of restaurant. Not at all stuffy.

Service: 

Munoz's partner Angela Montero runs the front of house on oiled wheels. Waiting staff are excellent at explaining the dishes.

Location: 

Right off the tourist beat in Tetuan, an uptown residential neighbourhood.

Price advice: 

Set price of 70.20 euros for seven courses, 81 euros for eight, and 91.80 euros for nine courses. With wine it's 100-200 euros a head.
