World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2012

It seems the magnificent legend of Restaurant Celler de Can Roca in Spain has no boundaries!

We are thrilled to confirm that Spanish restaurant Celler de Can Roca, our own very precious Girona based Michelin 3* restaurant, has been confirmed, yet again, as No: 2 Restaurant in the World, at the much-anticipated World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2012, which was held tonight, Monday 30th April at the historic Guildhall in the City of London, in the company of the world’s finest chefs, international media and the world’s most influential restaurateurs.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards and List, which is now in its 10th year, is organised and compiled by Restaurant magazine and sponsored by S Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.

The list is created from The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a highly influential group of over 800 international leaders in the restaurant industry. The Academy comprises 27 separate regions around the world, each region having its own panel of 31 members including a chairperson at its head. The panel is made up of food critics, writers, chefs and ‘gastronomes’ each of whom has seven votes. Members vote for seven restaurants, at least three of which must be used to recognise restaurants outside their region.

If you would like to experience some of the best restaurants Spain has on offer then our Ultimate Gourmet Tour is perfect for sophisticated diners who are looking to experience the best of Spanish cuisine.
