Just sit back and let the adventure come to you – an evening at Eduard Xatruch’s restaurant is like a trip to the movies, minus the stale popcorn.
At Disfrutar, you’ll work your way through 30-some tasting plates, each with an experimental, almost art-house flair – but this is one form of high art your eyes and tongue can enjoy in equal measure. Liquid tuna marrow, gazpacho sandwiches, cheese mille-feuille – unusual ideas, unexpected textures. Eduard Xatruch works with Oriol Castro and Mateu Casañas to push the limits of the imaginable, and the hype around them and their restaurants is undeniable.
