      Our Kitchen is Based on Time

      Engagement and Commitment.

      Ricard Camarena’s approach is largely sustained on local tradition, punctuated with cosmopolitan influences. Respectful with the locally sourced produce, his fresh yet acidic concept is all about searching for the essence of each ingredient. Ricard has created a highly personal cuisine whose simple appearance belies the complex process behind it. His elegant gastronomy uses innovative techniques that, while going largely unseen, can be perceived on the palate. All produce is freshly sourced from the farmland surrounding Valencia and the nearby Mediterranean Sea. He uses this produce creatively without any superfluous elements that might get in the way of what he wishes to convey in each of his dishes. In short, veneration for fresh produce coupled with a commitment to taste.

      Piscina de Barx

      After graduating he decided to lease the restaurant at the swimming pool in Barx, a small town with a population of one thousand people near Gandia (Valencia). This is where he started to forge his own style, experimenting with traditional recipes from Valencia and its fresh local produce.



      Three years later, after building up a loyal clientele and an increasingly more personal style, he and his wife María Carmen Bañuls decided to take the plunge and set up their own restaurant in Gandia called Arrop, opening on 1 October.


      Restaurante Revelación

      The definitive recognition arrived in January when Arrop was named Best Newcomer at Madrid Fusión, Spain’s leading annual gastronomy event.


      Michelin Star

      Camarena was named Best Chef by the Valencian Gastronomic Academy and won his first Michelin Star for Arrop. This year he also opened the restaurant FUDD in Valencia; an ‘outlet’ for his flagship restaurant Arrop.


      Marqués de Caro Hotel

      Camarena’s reputation grew apace and he won several awards (Best New Restaurant by Bodegas Gandia Pla and Best Gastronomic Contribution of the Year from Cartelera Turia). This year he began hatching his plan to move Arrop to Hotel Marqués de Caro, a sixteenth-century palace then under refurbishment in the city of Valencia.



      Arrop Ricard Camarena

      Arrop Ricard Camarena opened to the public on 1 October 2009. Over the next three years it received numerous awards, including a Michelin Star in 2010 and three Repsol Suns in 2011.

      Ricard Camarena closed Arrop in February to concentrate on his latest project, Ricard Camarena Restaurant located in the Ruzafa district in Valencia. The new restaurant opened at the end of July. Just three months later he had already received a Michelin Star, a record time for this guide, which it stills holds today along with three Repsol Suns and many other awards.


      Central Bar

      In August 2012 he opened Central Bar, in Valencia’s historic Central Market.


      Canalla Bistro

      In October, Ricard Camarena opened Canalla Bistro around the corner from his restaurant in Ruzafa.


      Ricard Camarena Colón

      On New Year’s Eve, Camarena opened Ricard Camarena Colón in the beautifully refurbished Mercado Colón. Divided into two different areas, this new space caters to corporate and private events.


      Ricard Camarena Lab

      In February Ricard Camarena opened Ricard Camarena Lab by Muñoz Bosch also in Mercado Colón. This is where he does his investigation and experiments alongside members of his team. At the same time, this space is also equipped for use as a classroom for cookery workshops.


      Canalla Bar

      Since July 2014 Canalla Bistro now has a bar area at the entrance, Canalla Bar, with a well selected cocktail list.



      On September 1, 2015 inaugurated HABITUAL restaurant on the ground floor Colon Market Valencia. Habitual is our personal vision of the Mediterranean. Oozing from every pore are gastronomic influences from the Italian coast, from the Mediterranean islands, from Provence in France, and of course from all over Spain, north to south, from Girona to Tarifa.


      Canalla Bistro Madrid

      On July, he inaugurated Canalla Bistro Madrid in Platea Madrid.

      On June 15 moved Ricard Camarena Restaurant to Burjassot Avenue 54 in Valencia city. The new restaurant is inside the art center Bombas Gens.



      Ricard Camarena Restaurant

      2018 was an extraordinary year for Ricard Camarena. Last November he obtained the most desired award, a second Michelin Star for his restaurant Ricard Camarena. Earlier that year he was awarded with the ‘Best Creative Cuisine Restaurant’ prize by Salsa de Chiles. Ricard Camarena got the 11th position world wide at the “Smart Green Guide” thanks to the vegetable cooking techniques and the important part vegetables play on his dishes. Last December he was chosen “Best Foreign Chef” at the Italian guide Identità Golose.
