We finished our Barcelona trip at one of the best hotels of the city, which (are you surprised?) happens to have an excellent restaurant, for which the talented Senior Jordi Cruz has won two Michelin stars.

The building used to be the old US embassy and has a weird design with long corridors, but the rooms are spacious and lush and as you would expect the room-service is top notch.

Our lunch was excellent, certainly more memorable than Can Roca. Faultless technique, awesome flavours, unique combinations, professional service? Check, check, check, check. No criticism whatsoever, I’m confident that this restaurant will soon have three stars.
