We are celebrating, we turned 101
The years 2019 and 2020 are very important in BonAmb’s history for very different reasons. In February 2019, the Repsol Guide awarded us its highest distinction, achieving the prestigious 3 Repsol Suns. Just one year later, the health crisis caused by Covid-19 stopped the entire planet.
Our 2019 season was called Trueque, in homage to that exchange of gastronomic riches, with ancient civilizations arriving from the Mediterranean Sea. Our day to day passed with the same fire that there was in those gastronomic markets. Our creative rhythm was frenetic, many guests visited us daily, ate, drank, enjoyed… and suddenly the world stopped.
On Friday, March 13, 2020, the Government of Spain decreed a state of alarm throughout the territory, closing many restaurant businesses such as BonAmb to the public. That season, practically all closed to our guests, was hard, difficult and desperate for all of us who love gastronomy. However, our entire team gave a lesson in commitment, strength and camaraderie, which helped us get through such a difficult year.
