Fodor's Review

The world's first dessert-only restaurant sounds like one of those terrible ideas that receives ridicule on reality TV shows, but Espai Sucre has been making a success of this distinctive concept since 2000. Attached to a creative and pioneering patisserie school that Willy Wonka would be proud of, this 30-seat restaurant serves multicourse tasting menus based around sweet-and-savory "desserts" that never fail to astonish and somehow never feel overwhelming. Consider goat "cheesecake" with raspberries, red pepper, and ginger; or squid rice with saffron custard and passion fruit. The innovation-for-innovation's-sake has been scaled back in recent years, but this is still a long way from a conventional dining experience—expect the unexpected.
