Run by a family of fishmongers and tucked away behind the Mercat del Born (an old market currently being converted into a cultural center), Big Fish has quickly become the brightest of Barcelona's large school of fish restaurants. The eye-popping decor by local interiorista hotshot Lázaro Rosa-Violán has honky-tonk airs and New Orleans raw bar inspiration, with aged leather sofas, old ship lanterns, flea market tables, and a shell chandelier cascading from the ceiling. Many diners come for the sushi alone, which is prepared from an open bar. But the menu (about 20 dishes and a few daily specials) presents a number of time-tested seafood dishes, from ceviche to tuna tartare and the sort of grilled whole fish the Mediterranean is famous for. If evening sittings are booked, reserve a table for lunch (where the menu del día is great value) or try the smaller sister Big Fish situated uptown in Sant Gervasi (30 Carrer Amigó, 34-93-218-3000).—Suzanne Wales

Open daily 1:30 to 3:45 pm and 8:30 to 11:45 pm.
