Our dinner at Gelonch was a solid dining experience. We were treated to good food in a simple and clean atmosphere. There was nothing exceptional or creative - no flare. You don't always need flare though. This was a relaxing experience that we left fully satisfied. I would recommend it. Great value for the price - large shareable portions.

We decided to visit this restaurant after reading all the positive reviews on trip advisor, we weren't disappointed. We went for the 9 course tasting menu, every course was delicious and explained by our very attentive waiter. Would definitely recommend if you want a romantic and delicious meal.

Artistic, delicious, best food of my life. I go to Barcelona just for this restaurant. Knowledgeable and friendly staff will help with wine pairings that you will not regret. Get ready for the meal of a lifetime.

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
