Book Tickets

Our monthly gastronomic feature followed by a meal in the IFI Café Bar.

A Michelin 3-star restaurant situated in northeastern Spain, elBulli was internationally renowned for its avant-garde 35-course menus developed by chef Ferran Adrià and his meticulous team until its closure in 2011.

German director Gereon Wetzel takes a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary work involved by filming both at the restaurant and at the laboratory in Barcelona where the chefs were based for six months of every year to develop new ideas for the menu, often using techniques and appliances more commonly associated with scientific experiment. His resulting documentary is an elegant and innovative study on creativity  and collaboration.

Afterwards, in the IFI Café Bar there will be a delicious tasting menu inspired by the film. Enjoy some different combinations of tasty meat & vegetarian tapas!
