SPAIN is definitively the best country in the world to grab a bite to eat.
With El Celler de Can Roca in Girona claiming the top prize, Spain was the only country to feature twice in the top 10 at the World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards in London.
In total, seven Spanish restaurants feature in the top 50.
Run by brothers Joan, Jordi, and Josep Roca, El Celler de Can Roca moved up one place to knock last year’s Danish winner Noma off top spot.

However it wasn’t all good, as Arzak in San Sebastian slipped down the rankings, moving from eighth to 17th.
