I booked this experience as my last night in Barcelona and it went above and beyond my expectations. Rudi is a wonderful and creative chef and I hope to be able to book this again next time I'm in the city. 100% worth booking!

As I was looking for restaurants in Barcelona, I saw Rudi’s and thought that could be interesting. It turned out to be amazing! The food was as beautiful as it was delicious. And we enjoyed talking with Rudi and the other guests visiting Spain. I’m...telling all my friends traveling to Barcelona to have dinner with Rudi!More

An excellent dinner and great luck with the other guests. It tasted very good, Rudi is a great cook. At the same time, we had great conversations with the other guests. 3 hours were planned, the time is up, so we spent 5 hours together....We can only recommend it and would do it again.More

I was skeptical when my travel companion booked a private chef instead of a MIchelin restaurant but I was truly amazed and impressed by the food, the plating, the wines, and the creativity of each course - all served in a simple setting. Rudi is...a genius -- and so peresonable and humble. Make dinner with Rudi a priority in your travel plans.More

Rudi offered 10 or 11 small plate courses. Each one was beautifully prepared and very good. He even took care of my gluten free requirements. The ten people on our night were fun, gracious and a good time. We did not know what to expect...and were blown away. You must go. Just do not plan on getting home early!More

Booked this amazing culinary experience for my and husband for our wedding Anniversary and his birthday. Never had a social table evening as my husband is quiet. I can honestly say it was just the best night. Rudi, fabulous host and chef. Every course was...imaginative, full of taste, beautifully presented. Wines were excellent and flowed all night. We couldn't believe how quickly the night went, we left at 1.30am chatting with Rudi and other guests. Loved every minute. Absolute bargain price to bootMore

Our meal with Rudi was fantastic. Rudi's food combinations were well conceived and delivered balanced flavors that made the palate sing. From the first course to the last every aspect of our meal was meticulously prepared and delicious. Being able to socialize with others from...different countries and backgrounds was a bonus. We recommend Rudi's to anyone looking for a fantastic meal.More
