Waiting for Dalí

Watch Trailer

Fleeing political turmoil in Barcelona, the culinary duo of brothers Fernando and Alberto seek refuge in the enchanting seaside town of Cadaqués. Here, they land jobs at El Surreal, a whimsical restaurant run by Jules, a man with a consuming obsession for local resident Salvador Dalí. Jules crafts quirky and extravagant gastronomic experiences, each a theatrical spectacle, hoping to lure the renowned artist to dine there. Fernando’s unparalleled culinary flair soon sees him rise to the helm of El Surreal’s kitchen, when he begins to fall for Lola, Jules’ fiercely independent daughter. Despite El Surreal’s burgeoning fame and Cadaqués’ alluring facade, shadows of political discontent loom large and tensions escalate between the tyrannical Lieutenant Garrido and the town’s free-spirited hippies, joined by Alberto. Will these mounting pressures result in Dalí’s eagerly awaited arrival at El Surreal? WAITING FOR DALÍ is a fanciful tale of love, art, and revolution — all set against the backdrop of culinary genius and surrealism.
