This is Besta, the T de Oro restaurant in Catalonia that you have to visit

Our gastronomic route today takes us to Catalonia, specifically to the Besta restaurant in Barcelona, winner of the T de Oro de Tapas in this region.

For weeks we have been following a gastronomic route to discover and taste the 18 best restaurants that have won the Golden T of Tapas Magazine. Today it’s our turn to visit the restaurant Besta, awarded with the T de Oro in Catalonia, a proposal between two seas, Atlantic and Mediterranean, by the chef Manu Núñez and his partner, Carles Ramon.


Surprising and unclassifiable, Besta is that place where the smallest detail rarely fails. The menu is simple, based on the Galician cuisine of chef Manu Núñez and the Catalan cuisine of his partner, Carles Ramon. The menu is mainly based on fish, always cooked with great care and with some surprising garnishes. We can find anything from a permit accompanied by sea urchin on a corn toast, a scallop with Iberian ham juice or a grilled red mullet with beetroot juice and pickled carrot. If we fall madly in love with a dish, we are lost: the menu is so changeable that we will probably not find it on our second visit.
