I'm officially very very unhappy now.
Just got an email saying I didn't get a place.
I thought they always say :
NO NEWS MEANS GOOD NEWS!
El Bulli replied me like 3 weeks after I sent them an email.. Unlike those who got rejected, they received an email within 10days. Why sent me an email and say I didn't get my place after 2 bloody weeks???
All I asked for is a place for 2, period. Despite, having tried 3 years in a row, I still failed to reserve a place in World's Best Restaurante.
Oh well, I officially give up. It was my birthday wish to be able to dine in El Bulli for the past 2 years but not this year. But this year's birthday, El Bulli wasn't the first thing that cross my mind. So you really could see I already don't give a s***.
I've tried many many ways of writing email (note: writing in English would not be their first language, I guess everyone knows!). Write politely, give them a range of dates rather than 1 date, telling them things like:
I'm an artist, just graduated from an art school OR
It's my honeymoon! OR
I would love to propose to my girlfriend in El Bulli
MIGHT enhance your chances of getting it.
Honestly, I've tried the first two but I still failed....
Damn El Bulli, approximately received about 800,000 reservations a year and can only accomodate about 8,000 seats. My chance of getting a seat is definitely low!
Damn Luis Garcia!
