Expert review of Skina

Modern fusion food in a contemporary setting… oh, with a Michelin star.

Having recently won its first Michelin star, Skina, a slang Andaluz way of saying ‘corner’, is becoming increasingly popular. I’ve been a big fan of the restaurant and its chef, Daniel Rosado, for several years though.

Food and drink: 

The Mediterranean fusion food is what it’s all about at Skina. The menu is short but its quality is undeniable. There’s a tasting menu, which I’d highly recommend so you can sample a bit of everything. The imaginatively-presented dishes are, where possible, made using Andalusian, seasonal ingredients. My favourites include the sardine bruschettas and red fruit timbale.

Ambience: 

The square, minimalist dining room, with sheer black furniture and white walls, has room for 16 diners, spread across four tables. It attracts a high-end, urban, professional crowd.

Service: 

The well-trained and trendy staff are spot on.

Location: 

It's a traditional white-washed corner building in the middle of the Old Town.

Price advice: 

The tasting menu and a mid-range bottle of wine comes to around 80 euros.
