This Summer Los Patos Restaurant in Granada got a new Chef. Javier Dominguez joined the 5 star hotel Hospes Palacio de los Patos in June. I went along to sample some of the new dishes and find out more.
Javier Dominguez is focused on local and seasonal produce. His dishes are based on traditional Andalusian cuisine, yet they are brought right up to date and served with precise presentation. He is a down to earth, yet professional, with a clear idea of producing the best with local ingredients from the region.
His inaugural menu in the first weeks of his new role included recipes from Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Lecrin Valley and Jaen. To begin we started with an Organic Extra Virgen Olive Oil from the Altiplano of Granada. Picual Variety by Altitud 1080.
Followed by Orange Salmorejo with goats cheese and anchovy cracker. (photo below)
Although unsurprisingly my favourite part of the meal was dessert, a very generous portion of pistachio baklava. Served with ice cream and spiced orange from Lecrin Valley. (seen below). The menu was well balanced and delicious. There wasn´t any part of it that I would have changed.
It´s become a bit of a tradition that I celebrate my birthday (towards end of February) with a lunch on the terrace at Los Patos. Usually choosing one of the Paella or Rice dishes. I was happy to hear that they will still be serving these traditional dishes, even though the new Chef is incorporating some of his new dishes alongside these firm favourites.
Summertime Menu Granada
If you get chance to head there midweek you can make the most of their Refreshing Menu.
The summertime menu is a selection of dishes, perfect for warmer weather with carefully chosen ingredients. The three course menu includes a starter, main course and dessert for 25 euros per person.
With two options for each course to choose from, its an ideal way to sample the cuisine of Javier Dominguez. (Drinks not included)
Hotel Palacio de los Patos
This hotel is still one of the best places to stay in Granada. So if you are spending a few nights in town. The hotel Palacio de los Patos has an excellent lcoation with all the services and facilities that you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Luckily you don´t have to be hotel guest to enjoy the fabulous terrace or restaurant though.
