Got the Reservations to El Bulli!!! Now need help???
I got that magical email confirming that I have in fact scored a table for El Bulli in April. We are flying into Barcelona. What is the best way to get to Roses- renting a car, train???
Also, I hear that the dinners are almost five hours long. So staying the night might be a good idea. Any advice on hotels or pension. We need nothing fancy, just a place to crash.
Thank you in advance for all of the help!!
We typed "roses tourist board" into google and this is what we got: http://www.roses.cat/en/Turisme/Abans...
It is an easy drive from BCN (motorway most of the way then a good A road) but the train then a hire car may work better, I am not certain if Roses is on the rail mainline so changes may be tricky. Do get a taxi to the restaurant the road there is very twisty.
I have the same issue. My reservations at the end of April. My husband and I are driving from Barcelona and will stay in Roses. Have not picked a hotel yet but there are a bunch of posts on Chowhound from 2009 and 2010 so I may just pick something listed there. However we will take a cab to the restaurant because we plan to drink and from what I've read the roads can be dangerous near there.
Almadraba Park Hotel is one of the nicer hotels I liked in Roses that people mentioned on the boards. Apparently it's on a beach and they let you book for only a day if you want. I guess they know that people really only come for El Bulli.
As a side note, I also read good things about Raffa's, so you may want to try it the day before going to El Bulli. I read that Adria himself goes there for lunch.
No problem. If I were going before you I would post after my trip and give you more details but my reservation isn't until the 20th. I was just going off what was told to me and I'm pretty much winging it based on previous boards :) I will also try Raffa's. Post back when you come back and let us chowhounders know how it all went.
