Spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca has returned to its spot at the top of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List.
The restaurant in Girona, Spain took the top spot on The 2013 World’s 50 Best list, before being unseated by Copenhagen’s Noma in 2014. It has been praised for its artistic parade of courses, superb wine selection, and mind-blowing desserts.
The Catalan, family-owned restaurant has been serving modern Spanish cuisine since it opened in 1986. The three Roca brothers, who run the critically acclaimed establishment, split their duties between the kitchen and front of house.
Flickr user Encantadisimo dined at El Celler in 2011 and 2013. Last time the restaurant won top honours, he shared pictures of his meal with Business Insider, where he and a companion shared the “Menú Degustació de Classics,” a seven-course tasting menu with the restaurant’s most beloved dishes.
With the wine pairing, the meal cost $US248 per person at the time. Today, it’s around €300 a head.
