The select Claris Hotel is home to Mr. Kao, a Chinese restaurant that elevates the culinary art of the Asian giant to the level it deserves while adding a dash of Mediterranean flavour. The cuisine of chef José María Kao bears his family's gastronomic signature. His cooking takes inspiration from the traditional recipes of his father, chef Kao Tze Chien. Among the exquisite house specialities, we find Peking duck, house-made dim sum, and noodles with truffles.

Mr. Kao's excellence is not only reflected in the sophisticated preparation and complexity of the dishes. The wine list is equally remarkable, featuring a wide selection of Spanish and international wines.
