Mix popular Portuguese two Michelin star chef Jose´Avillez (Belcanto in Lisbon), with Mexican one Michelin star chef Roberto Ruiz (Ponto MX restaurant in Madrid), add the super-hip ambiance of El Corte Inglés’ seventh floor Gourmet Experience, toss with jalapenos and a dash of Mezcal….and you get Barra Cascabel! This lively dining spot serves up delicious Mexican cuisine and Latin American cocktails. It’s a small space (get there early), but features loads of flavor and fun.



Don’t expect your typical Tex Mex chips and salsa at Cascabel.  Ruiz has created a menu based on traditional Mexican favorites, such as tacos and tostadas, but prepared with a finesse of a well-seasoned chef. Some of our favorites include:

GREEN AGUACHILE OF MEAGRE | Avocado, tomatillo verde and chipotle salsa
ALBACORE TUNA TOSTADA | Corn esquites salsa, cucumber, mint and habanero chilies salsa
SHRIMP ENCHIPOTLADO TACOS | Sauce of jalapeños tatemados and cebolla bruja. Corn tortilla
CHICKEN ACAPULCO ON THE COALS | Marinated in achiote and orange with pineapple purée and herbs
PORK BELLY DIABLITO | With cebolla bruja and pickled radish, and corn tortilla

The cocktails are tasty too. The classic margarita is muy bien, but the tamarind margarita is definitely a worth a try. Also on the menu are unique concoctions made with fine mezcal and rum.
