Spain can already boast having the best restaurant in the world thanks to the Roca brothers’ Celler de Can Roca eatery (awarded first prize by prestigious UK magazine Restaurant).
A gourmet menu there costs foodies an average €165, a pittance compared to what customers at the upcoming Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza will have to pay for their “avant-garde gastronomy”.
Set to open on June 1st, the Sublimotion’s €1,500 menus will be served up by Paco Roncero, a Spanish chef with two Michelin stars under his belt.
As a symbol of its exclusivity, only twelve guests will be served every night.
The select restaurant, found at Ibiza’s emblematic d’en Bossa beach, will offer a “gastro-sensory” spectacle to the lucky dozen; including lights, sounds and levitating dinner plates.
Food website the Daily Meal put together a list in December 2013 of the most expensive restaurants in the world.
In first place was Kitcho, a high-end establishment in Japan with menus costing €450 per person. That’s less than a third of what guests at Sublimotion will have to cough up.
