Fastuc is run by Sicilian born chef and owner  Giuseppe Cusimano, this chef has a long trajectory working in kitchens around the world and 5-star hotel where he worked alongside Michelin Star Chefs.

The name Fastuc is the merge of the Catalan word festuc and the Sicilian word fastuca, in both languages meaning pistachio. The pistachio is very typical and appreciated produce on his natal island, which is reflected in the cuisine of  Giuseppe.

The space of the restaurant Fastuc bathes in natural light coming from the big windows enclosing the locale. The decor is modern and inviting, with an elegant touch without feeling stiff.


Don’t be confused by that the chef and owner is Sicilian, this place is not your typical Italian restaurant nor your ordinary neighbourhood joint!

On the menu or as in Spanish la carta of the restaurant, you find refind flavours, unique combinations with quality products as the base of each dish. The essence is the Mediterranean, however, don’t be surprised if you find some non-European flavours in some of the dishes.

If you (like us) find it hard to decide on what to try on your visit they have two tasting menus. Short 7 dishes/ 50€ per person or 10 dishes/ 70€ per person. They offer a beverage pairing pack for 24€/per person.

We tried and tested the 10 dishes tasting menu, where we got to savour a spectrum of flavours from sea and land.
