Length of dinner at Next El Bulli?

I'm trying to arrange transportation to pick us up after our dinner and I'm not sure what time it will be over since there's only one seating and a ton of courses. If anyone that's already been can let me know I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    My meal lasted approximately 5 & 1/2 hours, but that was opening weekend so they very likely have sped up the pace some since that time. Hopefully someone who dined their more recently will chime in; if not post this on Next's Facebook page - they have a very active online community and you will likely receive multiple responses within an hour. Enjoy the meal; it is an amazing experience!

      Some breeze through in 4-4.5 hours. Ours was 5.5 hours last week, but we took our time and took a break in the middle for some fresh air. You might want to let the server know what time you are getting picked up when you arrive.

        Like Gonzo, it took our table of four 5 1/2 hours. This was week three of service I believe.
