In the month of August this year the doors opened to the new restaurant Costa Pacifico on Plaça Sant Agustí Vell 13, in the trendy neighbourhood Born, Barcelona.
Restaurant Costa Pacifico is a Mexican Cevicheria. The guys behind the restaurants are also the geniuses from the renowned Mexican restaurant Tlaxcal just a short stroll away.
The locale is minimalistic with white washed walls combined with a wooden panel inspired in the changing colours of the ocean, turquois and blue. At the far end of the restaurant they have seats in the bar, were as you eat can watch the chefs prepare the fresh Ceviche’s just in front of you.
On the menu we can find classic Mexican dishes like Guacamole and fish tacos and of course Ceviche.
All the dishes served at Costa Pacifico are thought to be shared (slightly bigger then tapas and smaller then a full main course). Which is a great concept so one gets to try a greater variety of dishes, textures and flavours.
The menu is short and easy to choose from, I visited Costa Pacifico with a friend we shared two (10,90€ each) different types of Ceviche. Which all comes with a base of lime juice, avocado, red onion and coriander and from there they evolve the recipe.
To the warm dishes, we tried two different styles of tacos on soft corn tortilla, battered shrimp 7€ and tuna carnitas 10,60€.
All the dishes made my taste buds jump for joy. The food is full of flavours it´s fresh, spicy with a modern touch.
If you want to feel that extra Mexican feeling on your visit you can wash down all the deliciousness with Mexican beers from 3,50€ or a Michelada -5€.
We couldn´t resist to try one of their desserts. We got recommended from the waitress to try the Carlota de Lima – 5,50€, a lime cream with cookies and lemon jelly.
Costa Pacifico is totally worth a visit, a relaxed atmosphere, great for a lunch or dinner with friends!
