Small in size, big in cuisine, perfect combination. If you wish for premium dining, seek no further. This is the place. Smart unusual menu (duck, lamb, seafood, pork, steaks), lovely wine selection. A top rated Bristo.

Very enjoyable evening at La Gastroteca that included a personal visit from the French trained chef. The crispy pork was exceptional combined with a spicy vegetable mash. My guests raved over the rack of lamb. Nice wine list and reasonably priced for such quality fare.
