What is a night like at the “world’s most expensive restaurant?” One traveler shares.
At the Hard Rock Hotel in one of the world’s hottest destination spots- Ibiza, Spain- lies the world’s most expensive restaurant: Sublimotion by Panco Roncero.
The diner, who posted her experience on Yahoo! Travel, is Yahoo editor Jackie Strause.
She had her reservations (pun intended) about attending the world’s most expensive restaurant- but when she found out it was a 2,000 euros ($2,173) per person meal, she began to reconsider her doubt.
She soon would partake in astounding 15-course meal that’s almost difficult to believe.
But before she could sit- her and her 11 fellow diners were provided with edible entrance tickets- raspberry flavored, she said. A nice touch to start.
As for ambiance, the futuristic table Strause and her fellow diners were seated at is something out of a movie or the imagination; each diner had their name “in neon lights above our designated seats-” the personal touch.
The 15-course meal was more than just a decadent and flavorful experience with food- virtual reality and projections had the diners using all of their senses as they progressed into the dinner.
“Each backdrop paired perfectly to the molecular meals being creatively placed before us as technology toyed with gastronomy and our senses,” Strause said.
At the end of the meal, dessert was provided with Ferris wheels equipped with sweet treats like cake pops and popcorn in “unrecognizable forms.”
After one of the finest Riojas, some more exquisite food and yet ANOTHER round of dessert, the finale came.
“Our table transformed into personal spinning stations and we were the DJs. The music pumped loudly and our desserts levitated as chocolate cakes spun ’round and ’round the neon turntables.”
