Fodor's Review

The late Santi Santamaria left his legendary restaurant in the capable hands of Xavi Pellicer, formerly of Àbac. It's a 45-minute train ride (or 30-minute drive) north of Barcelona to Sant Celoni, but this master class in Mediterranean cuisine merits the trip. One of the half-dozen top-rated restaurants in Spain, this is a must for anyone interested in fine dining. Every detail, from the six flavors of freshly baked bread to the cheese selection, is superb. The seasonal cuisine will take you from the truffle and woodcock festival in winter, through the lobster and seafood summer months and into the wild mushroom aromas of the fall. The taster's menu is always the wisest solution. The RENFE stations are at Passeig de Gràcia or Sants (the last train back is at 10:24 pm, so this is a lunchtime-only transport solution). Fortunately, there are five guest rooms available just a few steps from your last glass of wine.
