I can't translate all of the items but huevo y trufa is egg and truffles, repello is cabbage and berberechos are cockles which seem to be crystallised , anguila is eel which they serve with passion fruit, atún roja is red tuna which is served with cold almond soup, cabrito is kid which also seems to be crystallised and served with fried breadcrumbs of the 21st century, the citricos I guess are lemons and oranges and of course the fourth course is squid ravioli.
The wines sound good and the plates look nice.
