Dani García has been awarded three Michelin stars in Lisbon this Wednesday.

The restaurant in Marbella is one of 11 three-star restaurants in Spain.

The inspectors noted “the unique way in which the chef reformulated the Andalusian cuisine in a contemporary key, making each elaboration narrate a different story based on a product that links with the local tradition”.

The new award makes Dani García the only Spanish chef that is awarded three Michelin stars in the Michelin 2019 guide and the second three-star rated restaurant in Andalucia.

In the Michelin 2019 Spain and Portugal guide there are 190 restaurants with one star, 31 with two and 11 with three.
