El Celler de Can Roca in Catalonia has been officially named as the best restaurant in the world for the year 2013!
El Celler de Can Roca is a restaurant in Girona, Catalonia, Spain which was opened in 1986 by the Roca brothers, Joan, Josep and Jordi. It was first located next to their parent’s restaurant El restaurante de Can Roca, but moved to a purpose built building in 2007.
The Roca brothers’ passion for cooking was initially kindled in Can Roca, the establishment their parents manage in Taialà, a neighbourhood lying on the outskirts of Girona.
It is where they grew up, amid the hubbub of dishes, pots and pans and clients. The bar was their living room, their playground, where they did their homework, watched television… whence the aroma of the stews generously, simply and honestly prepared by their mother, wafted in.
The restaurant itself is absolutely gorgeous. The service is world class.
If you have a chance, get to Girona and try out this restaurant because you will not regret it!
