Now that the heat has approached, there is no better plan than going to One Ocean to take delight in a good meal and a dinner that is above the ocean (literally). This restaurants proposal is based on principal characteristics: a unique Barcelona restaurant situated on top of the ocean with a terrace that hangs over the waters of Barceloneta.
After a complete and outstanding remodel, the philosophy of this distinguished restaurant offers an authentic gastronomic experience with marine character focusing on the importance of small details. This is a delicate space where one can take delight in an exquisite meal, in a unforgettable place.
Upon entering One Ocean, you must pass through the seafood bar. It is a true demonstration that agglutinates the best and most extensive spectrum of fresh seafood.
A restaurant is created with the people that make the day to days possible and because of that, One Ocean is known for its amazing service, with a great team that is responsible for their sophisticated elaborations, with extreme care of the cutlery, furniture, and the best fresh produce of the season.
The menu has the sea and its fruits as the maximum reference with delicacies made in a kitchen that is close and recognizable that also maintains simplicity to be its own original product that evolves into the plate.
There is no better way to start this passage than with smoked oysters al Josper, sardines curated in citrus and basil, sepia croquettes and navajas del delta en su pil-pil emulsifying the navajas and cooking them at a low temperature. This is a grand repertoire for the appetite that prepares you for the future, less exciting sensations.
The tartars combine to create a montage of flavors and products like the tomato tartar that is aligned and confit for ten hours in the oven or the simple but exquisite tuna tartar with a fried egg and caviar- a true delicacy!
Following these plates, you cannot miss out on the carpaccio de sargo real, las vieiras con salsa mascarpone, cucumber, and Mediterranean herbs or the real crab salad.
Undoubtedly, it is essential to try a selection of the wild fish like the classic lenguado (sole) a la meunière with lardo di colonnata.
No one though can forget about the carnivorous customers for which the chefs have elaborated and perfected classic recipes like the Solomillo Wellington with mushroom duxelle and potatoes Parmentier, a good 1kg veal chop or succulent lamb ribs.
OneOcean is divided into different spaces giving importance to Blue Wave, a cabin where you can enjoy of the best-elaborated cocktails with premium alcohol along with the possibility of buying and smoking a good Cuban cigar.
Arriving near the end, we still must recognize that One Ocean deserves a place of honor in our agenda, it is essential for the lovers of the delicacies of the sea and feel at home in the water.
