Run by a friendly chef who loves to interact with his guests, Desengaño 13 is one of the most unique restaurants near Gran Vía. The menu is divided into three parts: dishes based on products that come from the garden, those that come from the sea and those that come from the farm, providing a wide range of choices for all tastes. The cuisine is inspired by Spanish gastronomy, but the chef has improved on the recipes and made them his own, serving tempting variations of the classics.
