Showcasing their nation’s great culinary traditions while simultaneously introducing diners to something entirely new, Spain undoubtedly has some of the world’s most exciting restaurants within its borders. Each holding three stars, these Michelin star restaurants in Spain stand out as some of the very best.
As the restaurant that took the number one spot in our reader-voted Top 100 Restaurants awards, Azurmendi is proving to make an impression on gastronomes from far and wide. Tucked into the Basque Country, this three Michelin starred restaurant uses the finest produce from the region to create innovative dishes using progressive culinary techniques. Current dishes on the multi-course menu include farm’s egg cooked inside out and truffled, roasted lobster with Iberian pork stew and whipped butter, and local tomatoes with gel, basil sorbet and salted perfume.
