BIG FISH BARCELONA
Update May 17, 2013
Most striking feature:
Their tuna. It’s delicious with a capital D. Big Fish is a fantastic restaurant in the touristy area El Borne. The main focus is fish – so if you’re in for superb sushi, you have to go here. But I’ve ordered the normal tuna and it was so soft, it melted on my tongue. The interior is done by Lázaro Rosa-Violan (the same design company who did the interior for Praktik Rambla among others) and you see the lovely details in every corner of this cosy restaurant. Chesterfields, shutters to hide lamps, candles and a variety of cool lamps. Oh, the entrance is also beautiful: a large red door opens up to this fantastic place. And there’s a small terrace outside.
Update May 17, 2013: We’ve been here for lunch to order their menu del dia. And you can’t believe it but it only costs 13 euro per person. That’s a 3 (!) course meal including one glass of wine. You can choose from three dishes per course. I’ve ordered sushi as a starter, fish as the main dish and yoghurt as a dessert. For 13 euro! You wouldn’t even pay this at the tacky Ramblas and in here you get inspired by the beautiful interior as well. I was already a fan for their dinner at night, but now I’m also choosing Big Fish for lunch.
