As one of the world's best restaurants opens for its final evening, a couple in the midst of a divorce who made their reservation a year ago (before separating) reunite for a once-in-lifetime meal at a famous restaurant also associated with molecular gastronomy . As the story of various people , set against the backdrop of a glamorous tasting menu meal at the last night of business for Chaluka (elBulli.-alike run by chef Ferran Adrià)set on a bay on Catalonia's Costa Brava, , described as "the most imaginative generator of haute cuisine on the planet" . It is a trendy restaurant whose owner (Andrew Tarbert) and chef as well as a woman named Mar Vidal (Vicenta N'Dongo) have decided to closure it and attempt something different . There comes a recently separated couple Marc (Jan Cornet) and Rachel (Claudia Bassols) , wealthy Japanese businessmen (Togo Igawa) accompanied by a translator girl (Marta Torne) , a mysterious man (Stephen Rea) and an aristocrat lady Comptessa (Fionnula Flanagan)

Romantic Spanish comedy with fine actors , charming songs , love stories , and acceptable direction . Fun and uplifting Spanish romantic comedy with fun events , amusement , entertaining situations , dealing with a luxurious restaurant and its iterative creative process on tasty dishes . As the picture displays examined the methods behind the creation of signature dishes . This enjoyable film packs amusement , comical as well as dramatic situations , agreeable comedy including conventional pitfalls and many other things . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , emotion and triangular love stories . This is another Spanish loving comedy romp , it is a bemusing story that contains lots of humor , entertainment , and involving Masterchefs , higher-class guests , doctors and other people . This restaurant where is developed the action bears remarkable resemblance to El Bulli that was closed on July 30, 2011 and was reopened as a creativity centre in 2014 . The fabulous restaurant had a limited season and bookings were taken on a single day after the closing of the current season .

Colorful cinematography by Emilio Guirao showing splendidly a small restaurant overlooking a gorgeous Cala at a bay on Catalonia's Costa Brava . The motion picture was well directed by Roger Gual . He is a good director and writer, known for Smoking Room (2002), Remake (2006) and especially this Tasting menu (2013) .
