And the thing is that today we are going to talk to you about the Michelin Guide for Spain and Portugal 2016, which was presented this Wednesday in Santiago de Compostela. Specifically, we want to focus on Spain, which has 8 restaurants with three stars, 18 with two and 157 with one.
What we are going to do today at Vuela Viajes is tell you about the 8 restaurants in our country that have the honor of having 3 Michelin stars. Would you like to join us?
First of all, we want to talk about the Akelarre Restaurant which, as indicated on the website, is Pedro Subijana and a great human, professional and efficient team. Located in San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, this gastronomic temple offers more taste and visual surprises every year with the best products. Its wine service and its spectacular views over the sea stand out.
Another of the Spanish establishments with three Michelin stars is the Arzak Restaurant. Also located in San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, this mythical house is increasingly committed to avant-garde cuisine, although without losing sight of the roots and essential tastes of the land. Juan Mari Arzak and his daughter, Helena, are in charge of running this restaurant that offers fun and rigorous provocations.
Also located in the Basque Country, specifically in Larrabetzu, Vizcaya, the Azurmendi Restaurant, run by chef Eneko Atxa , offers cuisine linked to the territory with products of traditional cuisine. This restaurant is a pioneer of modern Basque cuisine and a true champion of sustainability. This year it has been designated as the best restaurant in Europe according to the OAD guide.
We suppose you won’t be surprised if we tell you that there is still another Basque restaurant that has 3 Michelin stars. This is the Martín Berasategui Restaurant, which is located in Lasarte-Oria, Guipúzcoa. In this exclusive space run by chef Martín Berasategui you can find a combination of tradition and culinary innovation, or what is the same, you will enjoy a unique gastronomic experience.
The Celler de Can Roca
We left the Basque Country to move to Catalonia, where the Celler de Can Roca is located, which this year has once again been designated the Best Restaurant in the World according to the Diners Club World’s 50 Best. As you may already know, this is the project of Jordi, Josep and Joan, three brothers who have a passion for cooking. According to the Michelin Guide inspectors, these brothers “take the culinary experience to exceptional levels”.
Quique Dacosta Restaurant
Located in Denia, Alicante, the Quique Dacosta Restaurant is located in a Mediterranean village, although it has an avant – garde glass pavilion. Its chef offers two tasting menus that demonstrate his imaginative extravagance. One of them is dedicated to the already established dishes and another to its latest proposals.
For its part, the DiverXo Restaurant is located in Madrid and is run by the creative and obsessive chef David Muñoz , who offers cosmopolitan, novel and fun dishes, as well as quite revolutionary room service and wines.
Sant Pau Restaurant
Finally, we have to talk about the Sant Pau Restaurant, which is located in Sant Pol de Mar, Barcelona. As indicated by the inspectors of the Michelin Guide, it is an excellent restaurant with two elegant rooms, highlighting the exterior, since it offers wonderful views. As for the culinary experience, which comes from the hand of Carme Ruscalleda , it is creative and delicate, although with deep local roots.
