Although Spain and Portugal count a combined total of 30 new-starred restaurants, Dani Garcia was the only new 3-star addition. Michelin’s inspectors noted that ‘’García has conquered the top echelon with his unique way of reformulating Andalusian cuisine in a contemporary way, ensuring that each development tells a different story based on products related to local traditions’’.
According to Michelin, the inspectors ’’also fell in love with the game of contrasts true to Garcia´s 'contradiction-in-the-kitchen’ Leitmotif'', as well as '' the staging of a large part of his dishes''.
Grupo Dani Garcia counts 2 further restaurants in Marbella: Bibo in Puente Romano and Lobito de Mar just a stone throw away from Bibo, on the Golden Mile.
