Celebrated chef Quique Dacosta brings his unique culinary talent to Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid at Deessa, the hotel’s signature restaurant and chef Dacosta’s first offering in the Spanish capital. Located in the beautiful Alfonso XIII room, overlooking the Ritz Garden, it is the perfect setting for chef Dacosta’s cuisine, which knows no boundaries when it comes to taste.

Serving degustation menus: “Historical” and “Contemporary”, two extensive tasting menus available for lunch, dinner and weekends, Deessa promises a truly unique gastronomic experience awarded in 2021 with a Michelin star.

On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at lunch time Dessa also offers “The Essence” menus encapsulating the foundation of both menus.

Overlooking the garden and terrace, Deessa offers a 10-person private dining room for intimate dinners and celebrations. A ‘Hidden Table’ offers guests the opportunity to meet the chef with a sommelier on hand to suggest wine pairings from the Hidden Table’s wines by the glass programme, featuring a selection of 250 European, primarily Spanish, wines. There is also a wide selection of artisan beers and a creative cocktail list.
