The restaurant, located in the Marqués de Riscal hotel in Elciego (see ‘Places to Stay’), features the cuisine of Francis Paniego from Echaurren prepared by his former sous-chef, José Ramón Piñeiro. In addition to a wide range of vintages from Marqués de Riscal’s Rioja and Rueda wineries, guests can sample the ‘Great Wines by the Glass’ programme, an initiative of Starwood Hotels & Resorts which includes wines from South Africa, Argentina and New Zealand, among others. You can also eat at the somewhat less expensive Bistro 1860.
