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.

top of the top - a truly magical culinary experience

Words are not enough to discribe this restaurant ! If you are in for really fine cuisine and bluffing presentation, this is it. The service disserves a 6 : perfectly well-trained and thoughtful and absolutely not pretentious, as is often the case in these upper range restaurants. We had the degustation menu which I would recommend. This is really way above other restaurants I have seen on this list averaging the same score.

Experiencia excepcional

Cubre todas las espectativas y mas. Excelente comida, atención inmejorable, decoración agradabilísima, cava muy bien dotada y dirigida. Deben cuidar que los comensales no retiren sus chaquetas y las cuelguen en el respaldo de las sillas.

Worth Every Euro!

We went here for Sunday dinner and plan to return some evening. This is an outstanding restaurant.
