We are all very happy for El Celler de Can Roca, recently named the best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. Congratulations!

El Celler opened in 1986 by the chef Joan and sommelier Josep and a few years later, their younger brother the pastry chef, Joan joined them. The three brothers attribute their love of food to the stews their mother made while growing up in the local restaurant also named Can Roca.

A few years ago, we enjoyed dinner here with the Endurance group and it really was amazing. Every bite was like, ¨how could this possibly taste so good!¨.
I kind of wonder if we will bring a group to this restaurant again...since it seems you will have to make reservations a year or so in advance. But they deserve it and we are happy that the local cuisine has achieved such recognition.
