Lasarte

Barcelona continues leading the way in cutting-edge, international cuisine. In the wide range of quality restaurants in the city, 23 stand out above the rest: those that have the honour of receiving a Michelin star or two... or three. If your wallet allows and you want to pay tribute, here's the list of Barcelona's 23 star-studded restaurants. Enjoy!

Restaurants with three stars

Lasarte

Recommended

Martín Berasategui’s embassy at the Condes de Barcelona hotel has become one of the essential restaurants not only in the city but in all of ​​Catalonia and Spain, where people flock to marvel at the creativity of the chef. The sampling menu is a treat that everyone should have the chance to enjoy, at least once in a lifetime, and if possible, once a year. Such excellence has earned the Lasarte the top prize in the restaurant world, and as of November 2016 the restaurant is the first in Barcelona to boast three Michelin stars. In addition to Berasategui, the man responsible for the day-to-day operations is Italian chef Paolo Casagrande. His elegance and creativity are seen in dishes such as apple millefeuille, foie gras, and European eel, and the surprising aesthetic of the dishes never surpasses the combination of amazing flavours.

Restaurants with two stars

Moments

Raül Balam, son of Carme Ruscalleda, has earned his second Michelin star with this leading hotel restaurant. Like the original in Sant Pau, the concept is impeccable, innovative – but very Catalan – cuisine, with dishes such as the veal 'fricandó' (beef fillet with mushrooms) with Scotch bonnet mushrooms and the Maresme shrimp with glazed tomato petals, a vegetable medley and toasted pine nuts.

Àbac

Recommended

Jordi Cruz has regained Àbac’s second Michelin star, making his restaurant once again the essential haute cuisine establishment in Barcelona. He reached such heights by creating cuisine filled with expertise and sophistication. Take, for example, the egg with asparagus. Sounds simple enough, but Cruz has done a number on the egg that is something out of an R&D think tank. First the yolk is cooked at 62°C, then cured in salt water to give it just the exact subtle touch of salt. Served with white asparagus, a divinely thin slice of Serrano ham and a spoonful of caviar, it's nothing less than spectacular.

Restaurants with one star

Céleri

Xavier Pellicer is one of the great Catalan chefs, and he's earned his stripes all around Catalonia: he left Àbac with two Michelin stars, and sufferend the sad and unjust collapse of Can Fabes. Outside of the pressure of the race for Michelin stars, Pellicer found his path in the consultancy for restaurants in the Tribu Woki group (Barraca, Barracuda, Carmelitas). And now with Céleri, where he's not only a consultant but also a partner, he's managed to return to the world of signature cusine in a profoundly personal way. And it's paid off: away from media pressure, Céleri has earned its first Michelin star. Pellicer has raised a restaurant where every plate of vegetables – organic and seasonal – has an interpretation with a vegan, carnivore or marine touch. That is, each one has three derivations. Here the vegetable rules, except for a small selection of organic meats.

Xerta

Recommended

In Xerta, the restaurant in the Ohla hotel, you'll find the champion of Barcelona haute cuisine for delving into the great unknown of Catalan gastronomy by using raw materials and recipes from the Delta d'Ebre. Chef Fran López, who at age 25 won a Michelin star at his Villa Retiro restaurant in Xerta, a town in the Delta d'Ebre region, now offers dishes in Barcelona that combine the raw power of the sea with gastronomic creativity. As López himself explains, 'We're the only gastro restaurant with a Delta seal in Barcelona. And that's what makes us so different and interesting in a city where there are great Peruvian, Mexican and Japanese restaurants, and also all sorts of Catalan cooking. But from the south there's nothing. We're from the Delta, we have access to all the raw materials from there, and we're experts in the regional cooking techniques. Here we've got a singular and little-known cuisine – European eels, baby eels, 'cajitas', Delta oysters, sea anemones in batter...'.

Alkimia

For 13 years Alkimia operated from C/Indústria, 79, and after a year in the works, Jordi Vilà and Sonia Profitós reopened their restaurant in the Fábrica Moritz. On Indústria it was a good spot for getting to know the basic concept of a modern Barcelona restaurant, but for the reopening, from the first floor where the Mortiz family once lived, Vilà made a surprising announcement of the great offerings they'll have in a minimal space. 'Six tables for 18 people. We all know what they say about gastro restaurants not being profitable. If it's not profitable, why make it bigger? We'll make it better,' he said. In fact, their move to the former flat in Sant Antoni wasn't about expanding (though they do have a fantastic open kitchen) but rather about redefining.

Recommended

Caelis is not suitable for all pockets, but it does have an amazing sampling menu that is made in the Hotel Palace, devised by the talented Michelin-star chef Romain Fornell. They have a lunch menu that includes two snacks, a starter, a main course, dessert and coffee. Michelin star quality served in the spectacular setting of the Hotel Palace.

Fonda Gaig

Carles Gaig has moved his namesake restaurant, along with its Michelin star, to where Fonda Gaig once stood, resulting in the disappearance of Fonda Gaig such as it was. The name remains the same, however, and Gaig, armed with his quality ingredients and his star, now has the freedom to be more creative, while still serving up classics like his cannelloni with truffle cream, as well as some of the dishes that were on the Fonda Gaig menu, including meatballs with cuttlefish and 'cardinal' macaroni.

Hoja Santa / Niño Viejo

Hoja Santa, plainly and simply put, is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Barcelona. Albert Adrià and Mexican chef Paco Méndez approach popular Mexican tradition with an outlook and products that are both haute cuisine, and from there they manage to get surprising dishes such as the cep mushroom and truffle quesadilla, and the wagyu veal with chichilo mole. Where they really shine is in the gourmet work with vegetables, with dishes that play with the classics – try the pasilla mole with crunchy baby veg. Attached next door is Albert Adrià's taco bar, Niño Viejo, which is pure fun: scrumptious tacos include the 'huitlacoche' (the corn smut fungus is a delicacy), as well as pork 'carnitas', ribs and scratchings. But in addition to traditional Mexican dishes, the cooking's also got the Adrià touch: the chicken with annatto marinade barbecued in a Josper should be obligatory.

Angle

Recommended

Jordi Cruz has taken Angle from Bages to C/Aragó. Like he says, it is a garden-variety restaurant with a Michelin star, meaning you can have a set lunch menu that gives you great value for money with high-quality cuisine. They use good local produce, like roasted guinea fowl with foie gras, and oriental touches as well.  Examples of Cruz's imagination and undisputed creativity include, lemon fish ceviche with grated cucumber and cherries.

Hofmann

Recommended

New haute cuisine with distinct Catalan influences and beautiful desserts, all presented impeccably. How does chef Mey Hofmann's calamari with Catalan blood sausage and praline sauce sound? Hofmann herself calls it "simple and not overthought", with the praline sauce making an unexpected appearance. The squid are stuffed with the sausage, which was previously heated in the microwave in order to soften it up, the not-quite-boiled praline sauce is added, and then it's grilled. The result is fantastically crunchy and quite the combination.
