It was nice food, nice service , unfortunately only one more table at the time we went and sad ( my sweet valentine jazz kind of stuff) music. So kind of depressing, in spite of the food.

This restaurant is amazing! The combinations of flavours, textures and cultures work incredibly well. The taster menu is competitively priced for the quality of the food. The staff are welcoming and the restaurant intimate. I would have liked slightly more ambient lighting but apart from that this place is fantastic. I want to bring the chef to London, he is... More

This place is amazing. Lovely tasting menu with a few touches of genius, delightful attentive and respectful staff, nice intimate little venue with great ambience. Better than one of the two Michelin starred places I've visited this week and as good as the other. Try it- it'll make all your dreams come true!

We were not sure what to expect, but the Japanese/Peruvian/Catalonian meal was truly memorable. Especially the tacos made from a slice of Jicama. Very attentive service , excellent wine. So glad we found Gelanch.

We went on a very quiet night for the restaurant. It is a small, very intimate space that is also very friendly. A lot of the tasting menu is inspired by flavors of Peru. Each dish was extremely well done, finishing with probably the best suckling pig I have had. Really worth visiting.

We were very fortunate to come across Gelonch. We managed to get a last minute table and boy were we delighted. We had the 10 course taster menu and it was some of the best food I've ever had. I won't go through each course and bore you to death, but it truly was amazing. The restaurant is small and... More

It was my first time in Barcelona and my partner researched this restaurant. Here's a link you can read and I definitely share this bloggers thoughts why we picked this restaurant http://www.jamieoliver.com/bloggers/viewtopic.php?id=74169 I have always admired elBulli particularly Ferran Adrià although I have never dined at his restaurant. It was my dream as a chef to eat there. I must... More

Wow…what a meal! I can honestly say it was as good as any meal I've eaten in my life and I've eaten a few! It was imaginative, different and every mouthful as tasty as the last. Sadly the restaurant was very quiet…why??? Go here! The chef was trained by E Bulli restaurant and it shows in the creativity and unusual... More

My wife and I selected the 16 course tasting menu on the night of our visit. The very professional and friendly waiter explained to us that the first six courses were small bite-sized morsels which gave us the confidence to try out the 16 courses. We were not to be disappointed. It was probably one of the best meals of... More

This visit was a 50th birthday pressie and I was really looking forward to it. But it was poor enough for me to bother writing a review and suggesting you think twice before going here. - There were only 3 tables booked the night of our visit, all tourists! - The interior was plain and boring and could have been...
