We are going to Barcelona and San Sebastian for my 60th birthday in May. I was hoping to make a sidetrip to Girona for El Celler. I tried and failed to get a reservation in June, 2013. I think my mistake was that I tried exactly 11 months out from the day I wanted, rather than on June 1. My second mistake was not to get on the waiting list immediately for all the dates I'm in Spain. Anyway, I'm on the waiting list now for lunch or dinner on various dates in early May. Does anyone have any experience with the waiting list? Is it at all likely that something might come through? Is there anything else I can do to improve my chances? Thanks!
