Two Meliá Hotel restaurants have been awarded Michelin stars for 2018; the creative fare by brothers Sergio and Javier Torres at Dos Cielos of Meliá Barcelona Sky, and Angel León’s cuisine at Meliá Sancti Petri in Cadiz, have each received Michelin stars.
Dos Cielos, located on the 24th floor of the Meliá Barcelona Sky, has received its second Michelin star, joining the exclusive club of two-starred Spanish restaurants. The cuisine by Javier and Sergio Torres is first-class, creative, intuitive and emotional, and all served in an incredibly delightful, intimate and elegant open-plan space with glass walls affording views of the Barcelona skyline. Signature dishes include foie-gras ravioli, dried tomatoes and black olives and chestnuts, salad with red egg, truffle and wild-mushroom sand, and cellar-cured slab of beef. Famous for its personalised service, Dos Cielos has a small number of tables and an open kitchen so that guests can experience the entire creative process, a show especially devised for fine-dining connoisseurs. The Dos Cielos terrace offers a chance to enjoy the textures, flavours and experiences of the Torres brothers’ cuisine outdoors with the blue sea as a backdrop.
Alevante, the signature restaurant of Meliá Sancti Petri, Cadiz, received its first Michelin Star. This award is recognition of the undoubted talents of chef León and his team. Based on the successes León has enjoyed at his 3 Michelin-starred Aponiente Restaurant, the Alevante culinary experience focuses on fresh, local seafood. Located in Meliá Sancti Petri, the only five-star grand luxe hotel in the province of Cadiz, Alevante Restaurant has become a culinary benchmark and a must-visit for any gourmet or lover of fine-dining. Together with its extraordinary location in a real Nasrid Andalusian Palace opposite the historic Sancti Petri Castle, Alevante offers a menu that channels and surpasses the experience gained in the successful Aponiente Restaurant for over a decade. www.melia.com
