SPAIN has some of the world’s best restaurants, but not a single one of them is in Andalucia.
Three Spanish restaurants made it into the top 15 in Trip Advisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Restaurants Awards 2019.
El Celler de Can Roca in Catalunya is the best Spanish restaurant, according to Trip Advisor.
The restaurant in Girona, which has three Michelin stars, was voted the eighth best in the world by travellers.
Restaurante Martin Berasategui near San Sebastian was voted the eleventh best eatery worldwide, making it the second best in Spain.
Barcelona’s Disfrutar was voted thirteenth best globally. It means the ultra modern restaurant is the third best eatery in Spain.
Voters snubbed Andalucian restaurants, with not a single one of them making it into the top rankings of best Spanish restaurants.
Catalunya has the best chefs in Spain, with four restaurants located in the region making the top 10 list of best restaurants nationwide.
And unsurprisingly the Catalan capital is the undisputed culinary capital of the country, with three of these four restaurants being situated in Barcelona.
Lounge bar cum restaurant Acces and Con Gracia, which specialises in contemporary updates of Catalan classics, were the Barcelona names joining Disfruta in the top 10.
A total of 584 restaurants worldwide gained a place in the 2019 edition of the culinary rankings.
Trip Advisor said the chosen restaurants had ‘consistently received high marks and praise from diners around the world.’
