Vichy pants

For dinner this week at El Columpio, I chose this look with check Vichy pants, one of the trends this spring-summer.

We’re only the beginning of May and the weather is warm during the day, however, at night it’s still cold enough to need a jacket (ZARA).

Beige check Vichy skinny pants are very comfortable and easy to mix and match (ZARA).

With the pants I wore a basic white t-shirt and a large beige jacket (ZARA).

The cuisine by chef Juan Rioja offers Mediterranean dishes such as ravioli of fresh prawn, squid tentacles, beef cheeks, pork confit with pears in wine or verdins with black sausage, prawns and squid noodles.

We recommend the eggplant sticks with honey, wok mushrooms, artichokes, and green asparagus. You should also try the mushroom pizza with truffle.

For dessert try the homemade cakes as carrot cake or coulant au chocolate with vanilla ice cream.
The architect Marta Banus designed ‘El Columpio‘ with three distinct spaces.

First the bar, very rustic with traditional tools hanging on the walls and wood beams on the ceiling.
