Disfrutar in Barcelona - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 92. Molecular gastronomy has got a bad rep in recent years, mainly because a lot of people associate this type of cuisine with foams, gels and snow. Three important but often misunderstood technical innovations that sadly went from being ground-breaking and having a real purpose on the plate, to being overused and, even worse, often misused and ending up as an obligatory gimmick. Luckily there's s...

Alinea in Residence: Alinea Madrid

Rating: 92. Long ago, before the era of celebrity chefs and their restaurants, the only way to taste a famous chef's food, was to actually go to his restaurant and have a meal there. How things have changed. Nowadays you can go to exclusive "an evening with" events closer to your home. They tend to come at a price however - in Ferran Adria's case the privilege would have set you back a finan...

Punto MX in Madrid, Spain - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 90. Pretty much everybody likes Mexican food. Generally speaking (ignoring the cheap and not so cheerful (chain) restaurants) Mexican cuisine is universally loved for its attractive ingredients and the tasty and hearty flavours. Taquerias and taco food trucks have become a cult hit in recent years and tacos are promising to be the New Ramen. The latest example of this trend, is perhaps the taco stand ...

Akelarre in San Sebastian, Spain - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. In 1976 the Spanish magazine "Club de Gourmets" organised a round table discussion for which they invited Paul Bocuse as a speaker among others. Attending this round table were Basque chefs Pedro Subijana (b.1948) who had just become Chef de Cuisine at Restaurante Akelarre ("Akelarre") in 1975, and Juan Mari Arzak of restaurant Arzak. Paul Bocuse's talk on "Nouvelle Cuisine" turned out to be so in...

Asador Etxebarri in Atxondo, Spain - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 88. There is much ado about Asador Etxebarri. In the top 3 of most recommended restaurants in Spain in the Where Chefs Eat guide, it bests Mugaritz (3rd spot with 22 recommendations) and El Celler de Can Roca (2nd with 23 recommendations), with 24 recommendations. With this number, this grill restaurant outstrips popular places like Massimo Bottura's Osteria Francescana in Italy, Brett Graham'...

Elkano in Getaria, Spain - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 90. Elkano is a family restaurant in Getaria, a fishing village on the Bay of Biscay some 15 miles west of San Sebastian. The history of the restaurant goes back as far as 1964, when Pedro Arregui opened a fish restaurant on the Calle Elkano Kalea in Getaria. Some two decades later restaurant Elkano relocated to its current premises on the Herrerieta Kalea. Over the years Elkano has become the first a...

Mugaritz in Errenteria, Spain - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 96. When Andoni Luis Aduriz opened Mugaritz in Errenteria back in 1998, he was one of the first elBulli alumni to strike out on his own. A couple of years after dropping out of catering college in San Sebastian, Andoni Luis Aduriz (b.1971) went to work for Ferran Adria at the then internationally still relatively unknown elBulli in Roses, Catalonia. Aduriz stayed there for 2 years (1993-1994), a perio...

Sergi Arola in Madrid - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 91. Spanish celebrity chef and restaurateur Sergi Arola's eponymous restaurant is located in the Chamberi district in Madrid.

Arzak in San Sebastian, Spain - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 94. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Arzak in San Sebastian, Spain, as a three Michelin star restaurant. When Chef/patron Juan Mari Arzak was awarded the third star in 1989, he was the second Spanish chef to receive this honour. Arzak was originally established as a tavern by Juan Mari's grandparents in 1897. Juan Mari has been in charge of the kitchen since 1967 and he was one of the found...

DiverXO in Madrid, Spain - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. Everybody loves to predict a winner. With new three-star restaurants you often see that the third star has already been predicted by many, but occasionally there will be a new three-star restaurant that seems to have dropped straight from the sky - like a meteorite. In those cases, the restaurant wasn't on anyone's three-star radar, apart perhaps from the local foodies or the occasional lu...

Azurmendi in Larrabetzu, Spain - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 100. One of the nice things of having your own website is that there is no chief-editor whose job it is to limit the number of words of your article. If there was one and if I would be forced to pick four dishes to give an impression of the marathon meal at three-star restaurant Azurmendi described below, it would be 'Bloody Mar' - a swig of the sea, 'Duck Royal a l'Orange' - modern...

Moments at the Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona (2 Michelin stars)

Rating: 88. In the past decade, the Mandarin Oriental hotel group has become well-known for building alliances with a number of great chefs around the globe, such as Heston Blumenthal (Dinner in London), Thierry Marx (Sur Mesure in Paris), Richard Ekkebus (Amber in Hong Kong) and Daniel Boulud (Bar Boulud in London). In 2009 the Mandarin Oriental group opened restaurant Moments in their hotel in Bar...

Lasarte, two Michelin stars in Barcelona

Rating: 90. Lasarte is the two-star Catalunya outpost of the renowned Basque chef Martin Berasategui at the Condes Hotel in Barcelona. The restaurant is named after the Basque town near San Sebastian where Berasategui's three-star restaurant is located.

Massana in Girona, Catalunya - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 92. It's a holiday. It's the Costa Brava. Lloret de Mar, Blanes, L'Estartit. The annual anaesthesia of twelve days of clubbing, drinking, sunshine and other pleasures which I will not deal with in detail. Girona Costa Brava Airport is where you land before you are whisked off by bus to the beaches and the dreary tower flats that double as hotels. A certain carrier seemingly charg...

El Celler de Can Roca - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. Is there life without a water bath? For most modern top chefs, the answer would probably be a resounding "No". Sous vide cooking has become totally "de rigueur" in the last decade and in the hands of a competent chef the results of cooking food in the Roner (the state-of-the-art water bath with moving water and exact temperature control) are usually quite wonderful. The Ro...
