Spanish cuisine: new Michelin starred restaurants announced in Spain


Ever heard about the Michelin Guide? It is said that the restaurants which appear in this series of annual tourist guides always bring the very best of the countries they represent, assuring the return of the customers who visit their establishments. The more stars the restaurant has, the more tasteful and sophisticated the dishes are, making the trip always worthwhile for both tourists and locals.

Now the remaining details about the 2017 Michelin guide for Spain and Portugal have been revealed! One of the main attractions is the recognisation of Lasarte, a Barcelona restaurant run by the basque chef Martín Berasategui since 2006, as the new three-starred restaurant to join the Michelin star system. Along with Akelarre, Arzak, Azurmendi (the three of them in Basque Country) DiverXO (in Madrid), El Celler de Can Roca (in Girona), Martín Berasategui (the other restaurant of Lasarte’s owner as read above, also in Basque Country) Quique Dacosta (in Alicante) and Sant Pau (in Barcelona) the number goes up to 9 three-starred restaurants within Spain, a title definitely not granted to many. We can also find a total of 28 two-starred restaurants and 166 one-starred restaurants respectively throughout Spain. One can see that Spain is home to several remarkable restaurants, and it’s to be expected since it’s a country that has always taken pride in its cuisine.

It’s also safe to say that 2017 seems very favorable to Spanish cuisine, as these results are deemed a reconcilement of sorts between the Michelin guide and Spain itself considering the usual low amount of stars the latter is awarded with every year.


To those of you who aim to broaden your culinary horizons, enjoy gastronomic tourism or just really love to eat, we provide you a list of the best regarded restaurants of each autonomous community of Spain, so you always know where to go when in search of a finger licking meal.
