More than a mere dining destination, ALTORO Spanish Gastrobar is an idyll reminiscent of the vibrant market scene in Spain, exuding charming architectural and cultural details. The two-storey venue houses two different concepts to cater to diners looking for different ambiences.
The ground floor is a stylishly casual joint where people can enjoy tasty tapas and curated cocktails, with a mesmerising semi-outdoor area comprising a striking mural, lush foliage and a skylight that allows in natural lighting. The upper floor heads in a more refined direction. Intimate and opulent, the higher part of the restaurant is where exquisite gastronomic delights are served, paired with the finest wines from an extensive collection.
Late last September, ALTORO Spanish Gastrobar opened its doors to discerning diners for a one-evening-only superb wine-paired dinner, in collaboration with Protos Wines. Andreas Imanuel, ALTORO’s assistant general manager, hosted the event and welcomed esteemed guests, including Protos Wine Principal Joan Carreras, who was more than happy to elaborate on Protos wines for the eager diners.
The evening saw a delectable set menu courtesy of the restaurant’s talented assistant head chef Leonard Njoto Chandra, including pan-seared Lombok red mullet paired with Protos Verdejo, creamy rice with pork belly, peanut and mushroom paired with Protos Crianza and the lush Wagyu oxtail stew paired with Protos Reserva.
The atmosphere was mesmerising, the feast was impeccable, the wines were the finest and the company was unrivalled. An evening to remember, the Protos Wine Dinner was held for a good cause too. The proceeds from the dining event were donated to help Lombok rebuild after the devastating quakes.
