Excellent Mexican Menu at lunch time!

For less than 20€ you can enjoy a selection of Mexican creations by chef Gelonch. Only Thursday, Friday and Saturday at lunch time. We live nearby and we'll definitely go there again for another treat!

Excellent service. Excellent food. Great atmosphere for couples. Go here. Get the tasting menu and ask for the wine pairing. It was the best meal I have ever had.

Had a fabulous dinner at Gelonch with a friend on Saturday night. We chose the 15 course menu and found each and every one of them delicious. Brilliant flavours, with each course well balanced. Our waiter was lovely and very helpful with great wine suggestions. The setting is nice, although lacking a little in atmosphere. We could not believe there... More

Weirdly enough there was no corresponding wine menu for the ten courses. And the waiter... More

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
