As a one-star Michelin restaurant, Odiseo is all about spectacle, but also surprise and delight. With a culinary focus that encompasses sushi, Spanish cuisine, and Mediterranean, this is a restaurant for special occasions and celebrations. Upon arriving at the restaurant, the outside resembles the kind of showmanship one might expect in Las Vegas and indeed, you can find a casino indoors. Inside, the grounds, a harlequin giant rabbit statue ensconced near fountains offers some diners dinner and a show. One outdoor dining space includes chic minimal decor positioned with the largest cantilevered swimming pool in Europe, according to Michelin. The illuminated bar resembles something out of a futuristic movie. Expect tasting menus that change with the seasons and do make a reservation well in advance of your desired visit.

Located near the Cathedral, come for innovative tapas with prices that aren’t going to leave you shell-shocked. You can reserve a table or order food to take-away.
