Agua by Larbi
At the popular local and guest favourite, Agua by Larbi, the large and airy space has been newly redesigned with an earth-to-sea theme. Chef Larbi Dahrouch and his team will welcome guests throughout the day to enjoy the farm-to-table dining, offering authentic Mexican cuisine. The menu will change seasonally, with some menu items changing daily, depending on the fresh catch and produce available from the organic garden. Interactive dining will be showcased here, including fresh, hand-made tortillas, authentic moles and signature guacamole and ceviche made tableside.
A protégé of the late 3-Michelin-star-chef Jean-Louis Palladin, Dahrouch’s travels throughout Mexico in search of regional flavours have enabled him to provide One&Only Palmilla guests with unique dishes that are authentically Mexican. The open kitchen allows guests to observe his team’s techniques, whilst the restaurant’s wine cellar contains the world’s largest selection of Mexican wines, as well as wines from around the world. Agua by Larbi also offers guests a wealth of beverage options from the dedicated tequila and mezcal trolley, which introduces the distinctive Mexican spirits, from the blanco, reposado and anejo varieties of tequila to the unique and lesser-known mezcal.
The restaurant’s al fresco dining space leads down to a series of dining pods that perch on the cliff’s edge, affording diners an uninterrupted view of the Sea of Cortez—one of these, Larbi’s Table, seats 15, and is ideal for celebrations.
