Dining at Comerç24 was the most interesting, decadent, exciting food-related experience I've ever had. We both appreciate food, and often search the net for the best restaurants at our designated destination, and we came upon this restaurant surfing for restaurants related to much famed Ferran Adriá. Owner of Comerç24, Carles Abellan, has been an apprentice at El Bulli for years, which clearly reflects in the menu, and the playfulness of the courses. We had the Festival menu, putting our destiny in the hands of the chefs. A wise decision, choosing from the menu seemed to be too difficult, as we were afraid of missing out. We chose Cava for the whole meal, and we were guided to the perfect choice, by an incredibly competent sommelier, a very pleasant man, completely down to earth, and not at all a wine snob. He pointed out three choices, in three price ranges, which fit our criteria, and we ended up with a wonderful Cava, that complemented the whole menu to perfection.
The food was amazing, we were constantly surprised and amazed by the taste combinations, the humor of the presentation and especially the inventiveness. Starters were five different snacks, my favourites were gold macadamia nuts, and I swear I would've taken pictures if it weren't such a posh place. I honestly can't remember all the courses (six I think), but highlights were: an innovation of the traditional melon and ham, squid ink ravioli, oyster which tasted a bit like beef(!), raw tuna with Chinese style soup (kind of numbed your tongue, was amazing!) and of course, the dessert selection, which featured a coconut/curry/banana shake among many things.
The atmosphere was cosy and elegant, the service was unlike anywhere I've ever been and the whole evening was magical, I truly felt like Alice in Wonderland.
