I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday and also our anniversary.
Having to plan ahead I booked in January for a table on 17th July. Make sure you book in advance (6 months at least). We were both really excited about dining at Roca and we really weren't disappointed. It is an incredible experience.
Firstly, the restaurant itself is lovely. Very unassuming but stylishly designed, we were lead to a large table for 2. The tables are really well spaced out and although dining near to other diners you feel that it is a very personal meal.
My wife and I opted for the 14 course 'Feast' menu with matching wines. My wife has a shellfish allergy and the staff were very helpful in selecting alternative dishes for her to have.
Before the 14 courses began, we have 5 amazing hor d'oeuvres - that really started the meal and the expectation off wonderfully. Each time a plate, dish or tree (!) turned up at the table, you were left wondering what would appear next. Then came the 14 courses... which were each created with perfection. There is the option of a 7 course or 14 course experience. 14 courses was a lot to take in, but you are not rushed in any way - and we felt we really needed the full Roca experience.
The wines were delicious and perfectly matched each course - including 3 dessert courses. The staff were incredibly professional (as you would expect) and very friendly and informative. The waiters we spoke with had been at Roca for many years - and you can tell that they enjoyed their jobs.
At the end of the meal, along came the 'sweetie trolley' and we were presented with a plate full of devine chocolates and sweets. With the hor d'oeuvres and chocolates, that was 20 courses of sensory magic and treats for the taste buds.
We arrived at the restaurant at 8.45pm and left close to 1am and it was 4 incredible hours that we will not forget. A delight to be able to experience El Celler de can Roca.
