Total taste treats and innovative south-American inspired cuisine. The tempera fried avocado and the rabbit roll were outstanding. The chef is humble and passionate about cooking. The only disappointment was we were the only diners the evening we went.

Service was also great - nice short explanation of each course, attentive without being intrusive.Chef Roberto Gelonch came out to meet us and came across... More

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

First of all, for the three hours that we stayed there, we were the only two people in the restaurant. Atmosphere = 0 We chose the degustation Menu. Weirdly enough there was no corresponding wine menu for the ten courses. And the waiter... More

Staying in Eixample

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.
