What makes Sasha Bar so special is the combination of a cosy, unpretentious environment and a bohemian artistic flair. The simple, all-wood décor ensures that nothing distracts from their excellent gastronomic creations and amazing craft cocktails.
This spot is one of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona, because I get to enjoy a wide variety of raw food dishes like ceviche, tartare, carpaccio and oysters elevated masterfully by their chef using seasonal local ingredients and a creative touch.
I would also recommend their tasty Iberian ham, secreto ibérico with potato, crystal bread with tomato, roasted octopus leg with hummus, and truffle canalon filled with mushrooms and béchamel.
The service is superb and really welcoming. They truly pay attention to every detail – from personalised tables to nameplates – so that every person who walks through their door feels like a VIP.
Portions are generous and reasonably priced; you can have an à la carte dinner here for an average of 25€ per head. I am already getting hungry and yearning to return to this restaurant just writing this – it’s definitely a spot not to be missed!
1968 Cocktails (vodka, oleo citric saccharum and honey, fabra water and lime juice) accompany salmon sashimi and diced tuna dice in tiger milk.
Steak tartare bites marinated with soya mayonnaise and caramelised foie gras make a delicious starter.
Love the presentation of these Normandy oysters with yuzu juice and fake grapefruit caviar in a seashell-like bowl.
Shrimp carpaccio with reduced soy and pomegranate.
Amor amargo (Bitter Love) cocktails (Aperol, wine syrup, grapefruit and cucumber, topped with beer) will surprise you with the exoticism of its flavour mix.
Cubed yellowfin tuna in a bacon and teriyaki sauce is another one of their tasty dishes I’m in love with.
