GARUM Espacio Gastronómico
GARUM Espacio Gastronómico is a restaurant and tapas bar specializing in gourmet Spanish cuisine. The restaurant is managed by Spanish chef, Rubén Gómez, together with his wife, Ignahi González.
With its perfect location in the Plaza San Juan Shopping Center between Caribbean Cinemas and Pola Supermarket, it is close to other businesses such as Haagen Dazs, Payless, Ikea, KB Accessories, Corripio, among others.

The first is the Restaurant which is divided into a 60 square meter seating area and a 100 square meter kitchen, making a total of 160 square meters of space.

In their wine cellar GARUM features an extensive range of wines. These wines please diners from all parts of the world, and perfectly marinates with Mediterranean and fusion cuisine.
