In a ceremony that took placed in London on 29 April, the Roca brothers’restaurant was named the World's Best Restaurant by Britain's Restaurant Magazine, surpassing Noma, traditionally known to be the top dining spot in the world. The Copenhagen based restaurant, which had reigned the competition for the last 3 years, came number two this year.

The Spanish favorite first entered the World’s 50 Best list in 2006, when it was ranked 21st. and has stealthily climbed the rankings since. After having been ranked as the second best restaurant in the world in 2011 and 2012, the Roca bothers finally took their prize home this year.
While the main emphasis at El Celler de Can Roca has always been on the quality of the raw materials used, technical innovation has also played an important role, leading to appearances of the famous Catalan chefs at Harvard University in the United States, as part of the Science and Cooking program.

Simple flavor combinations are mixed with molecular gastronomy techniques and unusual presentations of food, including caramelized olives which are presented on a bonsai tree.
Before the 50 best announcements, several awards were announced. Chef Alain Ducasse was awarded with the Lifetime Achievement honor and Nadia Santini was given the Best Female Chef award.
