The restaurants at two Meliá Hotels International properties in Spain have been awarded Michelin stars for 2018, the hotel chain announced this week.

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. Signature dishes by Javier and Sergio Torres 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.

Dos Cielos has a small number of tables and an open kitchen so that guests can experience the entire creative process.

In addition to Dos Cielos, Alevante, the signature restaurant of Meliá Sancti Petri, Cadiz, received its first Michelin Star. This award represents definitive recognition of Chef Angel León and his team’s hard work, which has been achieved the first two years since the restaurant first opened, focusing on fresh, local seafood obeying the zero-kilometre principle. Aponiente Restaurant, Leon’s first restaurant in Cadiz, obtained its third Michelin star, marking the first time a chef has received two stars for his restaurants at this major fine-dining event.
