The 10 Best Restaurants in the Costa Brava Region, Spain

Restaurant, Spanish , $$$

Undoubtedly one of the most acclaimed restaurants on the Costa Brava, El Celler de Can Roca is not only a two-time winner of the number one spot in Restaurant magazine’s annual World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, it also boasts three Michelin stars. Run by the brothers Roca – head chef Joan, pastry chef Jordi and sommelier Josep – the restaurant serves contemporary Catalan cuisine based around multi-course tasting menus with inventive dishes that include oyster with anemone sauce, garlic sand, tender walnut, seaweeds and phytoplankton velouté. It would be a sin to leave without trying one of Jordi’s desserts (also voted the best in Restaurant magazine’s inaugural World’s Best Pastry Chef Award); his recipes include creative sweets like sourdough ice cream with cocoa pulp, dried lychee and Jerez vinegar meringue.
