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 chef's creativity. 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 since November 2016 the restaurant has been 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.
As of November 2019, there are 22 Michelin star restaurants in Barcelona (and a total of 31 stars). Trying some of the world’s most delicious food might just top your list of things to do in Barcelona, a city that continues leading the way in cutting-edge globally-inspired cuisine. Though there’s a wide range of quality restaurants in Barcelona, nearly two dozen stand out above the rest, with some even bagging two or three Michelin stars. If your wallet allows and you want to really splash out, here’s a list of all of Barcelona’s 22 star-studded restaurants. Enjoy!
