Barcelona: a new gastronomic capital?

Barcelona has been covered in new stars by the prestigious Michelin Guide and can now be truly regarded as a gastronomic capital. Four new Barcelona restaurants have earned its first star reflecting their exceptional culinary achievements; Dos Cielos (Sergio & Javier Torres), Moments (Raul Balam Ruscalleda), Caelis (Romain Fornell) and Hisop (Oriol Ivern). Miramar earns its second star, a restaurant located in Llançà, north of Catalonia. All the three star establishments keep their category. The Ferran Adrià restaurant, El Bulli, will be included in the Michelin Guide for the final year. Afterwards the establishment will remain closed for two years to become a foundation.

  1. Got to agree barcelona is fabulous for eating out there are so many places to choose from suitable for all pockets, the only thing to watch out for is the chain of tapas restaurants – awful and not real tapas, better to go with a recommendation

  2. Its true Irene, Barcelona its not the best city for tapas, however, there are a few very good Tapas restaurant, which we have in our restaurants selection.

  3. I love Barcelona but can’t say I’ve had the best dining experiences there, I guess the trick is to do a bit of research before you go!
