An ex libris is a tag or artistic seal stamped on one of the first pages of some books to determine property. Since the Rennaissance, many of them have been hand-made by painters, illustrators and renowned graphic artists, and some of them have become real collectors’ gems.
Over 600 of these prints are on the walls of the restaurant at Hotel Lusso Infantas, in which breakfast, lunch and dinner becomes a true artistic pleasure. They offer Mediterranean and market cuisine with avant-garde touches. Their dishes are seasonal, both for menu and à la carte dining, offering dishes such as the tuna belly salad with Piquillo pepper emulsion, their anchovies from the Bay of Biscay, the large red prawn risotto with crispy Parmesan cheese and truffle oil or their cod mille-feuille with crispy honey Ali-oli sauce.
The maître and sommelier Benjamín Gayoso can recommend, at customers’ request, the best wine to accompany each recipe from their wine cellar with over 100 references. Most of them are Spanish, representing almost all national Designations of Origin through different types: sparkling, aperitifs, reds, whites, rosés and dessert wines. Furthermore, their distilled spirit list includes some 80 references, with a wide range of Armagnacs, brandies, gins, rums and whiskeys, amongst others.
