This was more than just eating, it was an amazing sensory experience. I need all the superlatives in the book to tell you about El Celler. The food was incredibly delicious, creative, inventive and playful. Unbelievable flavours, yet not whimsical, just an honest interpretation of Catalan and other cuisines. The wine list is famously enormous (it gets wheeled in on a trolley) so we opted for the house suggestions to accompany the classic tasting menu, as it would have been impossibe to make a choice. The wines presented were exquisite. The staff were amazing - professional, friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable. Not a hint of snootiness here. To make a birthday experience even more special the three Roca brothers kindly took time out to pose for a piccy, bless, and did me an extra little surprise dessert. The ambience was superb, with every table having a view onto the tree-lined courtyard; lighting and understated decor was just perfect. I can't praise the Rocas enough for their imagination and attention to detail. Alas, the waiting list for a table currently stands at 8 months, unsurpising for the "world's best restaurant".
