He created El Lagar de los Milagros, an emblematic and very popular restaurant in the middle of the National I, as it was the rotisserie that sold the most suckling pigs in Spain for several years. 

The prestige of this business earned him numerous awards, he was named Mesonero de Castilla and received an award from the Ministry of Agriculture for the use and good use of our food and quality products from Spain.

Subsequently, the El Lagar Group ran two other restaurants in Madrid, with Ramón Berzosa at the helm, before landing in Malaga 15 years ago with the Mar de Pedregalejo and La Cantinetta proposals. Mar de Verum was born in 2021 and with Verum there are now two businesses that the Berzosa family currently owns in Malaga.
