A further 2 restaurants gained a second star - both of them in Barcelona - to bring the Country's tally of Michelin 2-star establishments t 19.

Michelin announced the results ahead of the launch of their 2013 Iberian Gourmet Guide Book, stating : "In terms of gourmet dining, 2013 was an outstanding year in Spain, with high marks for the quality and diversity of the culinary offerings."

Three stars mean exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey; two are for excellent cooking, worth a detour; one denotes a very good restaurant in its category.
