Fodor's Expert Review El Celler de Can Roca

$$$$ Girona Contemporary Fodor's Choice

Anointed twice (in 2013 and 2015) by an international panel of food critics and chefs as the best restaurant in the world, El Celler de Can Roca is a life-changing culinary experience. The Roca brothers—Joan, Josep, and Jordi—showcase their masterful creations in two tasting menus, at €180 and €205. You can consider your visit blessed if yours includes signature dishes like lobster parmentier with black trumpet mushrooms, suckling Iberian pig with pepper sauce and garlic and quince terrine, or Dublin Bay prawns with curry smoke (the Rocas pioneered the technique of roasting in the aromas of spices during the cooking process). For dessert, try any of maître confectioner Jordi's spectacular innovations. Don't hesitate to ask Josep, the sommelier, for guidance through the encyclopedic wine list, or go for the wine pairing menu for the full experience.
