Lonely Planet review
Sergi Arola, a stellar Catalan acolyte of the world-renowned chef Ferran Adrià, runs this highly personalised temple to all that’s innovative in Spanish gastronomy. The menus change with the seasons – a recent sample included smoked beetroot raviolis with celery consommé, or Jerusalem artichoke soft cream, truffled poultry mousse, mascarpone cheese and fine herbs.
