Just got turned down for reservations for Can Roca for May 2014 :) No reservations available for any meal for the next 11 months.
Apparently the day Pellegrino announced that Can Roca was the new "World's Best Restaurant" their web site got 12,000,000 hits and instead of a 6-8 month wait list they now book solid 11 months in advance.
The way they do it now is on the first day of a month they accept reservations for eleven months ahead. So for example on October 1, 2013 they will accept reservations for September 2014.
Here's a copy of the email reply I received from the restaurant when I inquired about May 2014 reservations:
And thanks for your email.
However, at present our restaurant is fully booked, lunch and dinner, in the next 11 months.
