I was born in Seville, Spain and raised in Barcelona. At the age of 20 I came to California, where I started cooking Spanish food for friends. When I was 30, I opened my first restaurant in Portola Valley. After 16 years, I moved the restaurant to Menlo Park, where it has a shady patio, a cozy bar de tapas with fireplace, a wood-paneled banquet room, and a wine library. I look forward to teaching you to prepare my country's cuisine in this beautiful space.
