Fastuc is a Mediterranean restaurant located in the neighbourhood Sant Gervasi – Galvany in Barcelona. Nestled in on the tranquil corner of Carrer d’Oliana with Carrer Moliné this locale is just a 10-minute stroll from the busy street Diagonal.
AT FIRST SIGHT – MEDITERRANEAN RESTAURANT FASTUC
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.
DISHES TRIED AND TESTED – FASTUC
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.
Second out where these 3; Crispy roll with burrata, basil and anchovies. Potato and shrimp croquette with paprika mayonnaise and Arancini truffle and ceps with parmesan foam.
If you want to get a «first contact» with Fastuc to see what it’s all about they have a great menu de mediodia which is a set midweek lunch menu for 14,50€.
