One of the greatest restaurants in the world is closing and an eclectic mix of international patrons have arrived in beautiful Catalonia for the final dinner service in this witty and delicious ensemble comedy. As the staff prepare and serve an audacious tasting menu, an estranged husband and wife, a nerdy dedicated doctor and a gorgeous best-selling writer, who made their reservation a year ago (before splitting up) reunite for this once-in-a-lifetime meal. Will their romance be rekindled with the help of the widowed countess dining with her late husband’s ashes? Will the two competitive Japanese investors finalize a deal with the brilliant chef and lure her to Japan? Will the demanding chef pull off a tour-de-force farewell worthy of her talents and her diners’ expectations? Will the musicians who are scheduled to perform survive their disastrous sea journey?
