Two restaurants in Spain have won a coveted second star and 14 establishments have been awarded their first, but the highest accolade of three Michelin stars remains elusive for another year.

The restaurant Coque in Madrid and Fernando Arellano's Zaranda on the island of Mallorca have both been awarded a second Michelin star for their cuisine.

And fourteen new restaurants across Spain have earned a place in the gastronomic bible after being award their first Michelin stars each under a ‘strategy of diversification'.

But the 2016 guide for Spain and Portugal will not include any new three Michelin starred establishments as, for the second year running, no new restaurants in Spain achieved the highest award.

But neither have any of Spain's eight restaurants with three stars been downgraded, although nine restaurants in total were stripped of their stars and three others had closed down during the course of the year.

Spain now has 188 restaurants included in the guide; eight with three stars, 23 with two stars and 157 with one Michelin star.

The new guide was announced in Santiago de Compostella in Spain's northwestern region of Galicia on Wednesday night.
