Disfrutar: restaurante con dos estrellas Michelin y lista de espera para entrar

Barcelona, known for its rich culinary tradition and its growing number of Michelin-starred restaurants, stands out on the international gastronomic scene. However, there is one restaurant where you should sign up for a waiting list to get in: it’s called “Disfrutar”.

Throughout the city of Barcelona there are 24 restaurants that have been awarded at least one Michelin star. As a result, lovers of haute cuisine have a wide variety of options to choose from.

The history of Disfrutar with a waiting list to get in.

Founded by three former chefs from elBulli, one of the most influential restaurants in the world, Mateu Casañas, Oriol Castro and Eduard Xatruch, Disfrutar has been a landmark in Barcelona’s gastronomic scene since its opening in 2014.

This establishment, located at 163 Villaroel Street in Eixample Esquerre, has been acclaimed both nationally and internationally.

Since its inception, the approach of the three chefs at Disfrutar has been avant-garde and creative. They have developed dishes with a strong personality, reflecting the rich Mediterranean culinary heritage but with a modern twist.

Their culinary proposal received a warm reception from day one, but reached its peak in 2018, when it earned two Michelin stars. This prestigious recognition placed Disfrutar at the pinnacle of world haute cuisine.

International recognition.

However, Disfrutar’s recognition is not limited to its two Michelin stars. In June last year, the restaurant was named the second best restaurant in the world, and the first in Europe, according to “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants” ranking. This distinction elevated Catalan gastronomy to the top of the international culinary scene.

This meteoric rise in the international ranking of the best restaurants translated into a growing demand for Disfrutar.

Diners from all over the world wanted to try the innovative and exciting culinary experience offered by the restaurant. Media attention and acclaim from critics and culinary experts contributed to the growing waiting list.
