Lasarte restaurant received 3 stars and seven new restaurants received two stars plus 22 new entries joined the one star club for the Spain and Portugal Michelin Guide 2017.

A total of 30 new stars were handed out on Wednesday, November 23 when the Spain and Portugal Michelin Guide 2017 was unveiled at a lavish ceremony in Girona, Spain.

Receiving a coveted 3 star was Martín Berasategui and Paolo Casagrande's Lasarte restaurant in Barcelona making it one of nine establishments in Spain to achieve 3 star status.

Michael Ellis, International Director of the Michelin guides said: "Martin Berasategui, already awarded three stars for his restaurant Martin Berasategui in Lasarte-Oria, delivers his vision of haute cuisine for Barcelona in a place with a modern design and singular personality. Supported in the kitchen by chef Paolo Casagrande, the surprising and particularly imaginative culinary universe of Martin Berasategui conquered our inspectors. Some of his great creations make it possible to gauge the full extent of this chef’s creativity: unique creativity in the service of an almost exceptional taste experience, elevating this restaurant to the position of one of the meccas of world cuisine."

Five restaurants in Spain were also bumped up from one to two stars this year. These included Diego Guerrero's DSTAgE in Madrid; l'Escaleta in Cocentaina, Alicante; Annua in San Vicente de la Barquera, Cantabria; Cenador de Amós in Villaverde de Pontones, Cantabria; and BonAmb in Xàbia, Alicante.

Spain also saw 15 new additions to the one star club this year.
