EL RINCON DE LA SALA restaurant has reopened its doors not just with a new look, but with a whole new tapas menu.
The popular San Pedro eaterie – sister of La Sala in Puerto Banus – has introduced its ‘pintxos’ concept, which means a big range of mini bites will be on offer for diners, who don’t fancy a full sit down.
Pintxos literally translated means ‘spike’ as pintxos are generally held together with a toothpick.
“These bite-size morsels are a great way of sampling a variety of different flavours and can be enjoyed at the bar with a casual glass of wine or while seated in the restaurant or on the al fresco terrace,” said manager Howard Holland.
“Whether you wish to sample the cold delights including guacamole and prawns and jamon serrano with fresh tomato, or you prefer to order off the blackboard, our pintxos offer miniature mouthfuls to suit all palates,” he added.
The specialities include traditional Spanish tortilla and four cheese and caramelized onions, as well as serrano ham topped with a quails egg.
The stylish eaterie meanwhile has a new look, which has seen the bar move and the restaurant layout adjusted..
While it hasn’t created more dining space, the new set up will enable musicians to interact with the diners, something Holland hopes will create an even better ambiance.
“We decided to level out the restaurant to create a more united experience for our diners and to ensure that the live music and atmosphere could be enjoyed by every customer, whether they’re eating in the restaurant or drinking at the bar,” he said.
Alongside the pintxos, El Rincon’s daytime menu offers delicious salads, sandwiches and its popular mini burgers.
