From the first moment when the taxi left me at the street I thought it was a mistake.

The street was a bit dark and all I could see was graffiti on the wall and a big heavy black door. I got closer and saw the name Tegui, I knocked and a guy opened. The sensation was like stepping inside a magic door. The restaurant was beautiful, modern and sophisticated. I loved the high ceiling and trees from the outdoor garden all shaping the design of the long room for dining with the kitchen at the back featuring a silver bull skull.

Special Touch

I received a glass of sparkling wine while waiting for seating. I really enjoyed the service which was very professional.  I also liked the idea many dishes are made for you to eat with your hands and dishes served on delicate laboratory-like glass and tubes. A kids menu is also available.
