As Bodegas Stratvs, Restaurant El Aljibe del Obispo surprising since its entry. A different room, a distinguished and careful elegance. The cistern, an underground room of the wineries, remarkable for its colossal structure. A traditional air breathing across the room to which, however, is joined by a few modern decorative. The result, far from confusing, is of outstanding brightness. No detail is overlooked: the lighting, background music and sweetener exposure wine envelop you in an atmosphere spec tacular. The enclosure class is matched to the service, noted for its professionalism and reliability.
El Aljibe del Obispo opened last June and his initial letter, a little brief, has grown correctly. However, we did not find enough variety in the starters. We liked the powerful and rich duck foie micuit either combined with pear and apple chutney. The novelty of fried eggs in the manner of the chef, at low temperature and with potatoes, promise to his presentation, but in our view fails to spark that is supposed to dish. The breaded cheese Finca de Uga and fruit jam, but it also failed tried too much. We were looking forward to trying some of their tasty salads: an Uga salmon with tomatoes and prawns.
The menu improves with main courses. Both in variety and cooking results. Bet the house by rice. With rabbit and chicken, prawns and cuttlefish with black rice, Lanzarote sweet fish and seafood, and a powerful lamb risotto with wild mushrooms. We bet on the latter who did not disappoint. Very well done and delicious. Sweetest rice with the flavor of the lamb. As for the fish, we are also convinced cherne tacos with shrimp. The fresh fish prepared La Graciosa is offered in the oven. Very simple cooking, but manages to extract the essence of the piece of Chinijo Archipelago Seas.
The expand the gourmet meat. Braised veal cheeks, goat marinated and fried, braised chicken, quail marinated, baked lamb and Beef Tenderloin Roasted in juice. We opted for the lamb. Well, fair, but like most of the letter does not reach the level achieved excellent stay, although we can be somewhat complicated. It should be underlined that the only wines served are from the winery. We tested four different. Snacks, a sublime Diego, white grape and a little muscat, white, very soft and easy entry, the red, probably the less successful but to be in Lanzarote takes note, and a Muscat for dessert golosísimo. Speaking of baking, the house offers different options. We liked stew strawberries with raspberry sorbet and amazed us a delicious homage to chocolate.
We have already mentioned the great service of El Aljibe del Obispo. The correction of the kitchen, but with room for improvement that will come safe, united at the luxury compound and the resulting atmosphere surprised us more than balanced by the value for money.
