Description: Welcome to Gilda by Belgious! Dedicated to the fading art of good service...
Welcome to Gilda by Belgious! Dedicated to the fading art of good service and fine, flavorful food at a good price, we seek out the freshest, quality ingredients to ensure your experience is of the highest calibre from beginning (our delectable gourmet tapas) to end (our mouth watering house-made deserts)! Since we are part of Belgious, don't be surprised to discover that some of our dishes come with wasabi, ginger, curry or even cannabis ice-cream ! Our kitchen opens every evening from 18:30 till midnight (even later during weekends), meaning you can even walk in at 23:45 and still enjoy dinner with us. If you would like to try our gastronomy at noon, we do open the restaurant -prior reservation- for private groups as of 15 guests (Ideal for celebrations or company related luncheons).

We stopped in for a quick dinner here as it was across from our holiday apartment and were astonished at just how good it is! By far the best meal we had while in the city, and one of the cheapest. The service was fantastic, and the server gave us some great advice about upcoming parties in the city, which... More

Dear guest Thank you so much for sharing your opinion here. It's not the first time visitors are qualifying Gilda as one of their best dining experiences in Barcelona, even comparing with much more expensive venues. And this is always a huge compliment for my staff who are making their best to make it happen every day again. Cheers! Michel More

We had dinner at Gilda by Belgious in May 2015. Pros: Tasty! My hummus was one of the best I've ever had. Great food presentation. English spoken. Cons: A little too dark for my taste. Loud music. Slow service (and she kept on forgetting that we were locals and spoke to us in English every single time). Practical info: Great... More

My family spent 4 days in Barcelona and we agreed that this was the best tapas we had on our trip. The food was very freshly prepared and delicious. Don't miss the crispy shrimp on curry ice cream - it's totally unique and yummy. We also loved the meatballs and Bravas. We debated about getting dessert and were glad we... More

Dear guest, As far as time allows me, I try to answer personally to most of the comments whether good or bad. In the far majority of the cases it is very positive, like for your family. For example, the crispy shrimps with curry ice cream has been a hit since 3 years now and it became a "classic" on... More

The prawns with curry ice cream - was an interesting dish, but one of the prawns was so over cooked it was inedible! The steak was good, nice meat cooked to order and the blue cheese sauce was fine.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your opinion here. The tapa of crispy prawns with curry ice cream is one of our most valued items on the menu list. The prawns have been sorted out to have the same size in order to prevent cooking or frying differences. I'm sure this has been an exception and it would have been... More

Hi there, Thanks for sharing your dining experience at Gilda. On the consistency of the good reviews : If we reached more than 700 excellent ratings and a mere 20 bad ones over 4 years, would that mean more than 90% of our visitors are ignorants ? I don't think so: all tapas and main dishes are prepared at the... More

We really enjoyed the fusion of Spain, Belgium, South America....and even a bit of the middle east. Really friendly staff attentive service, and attention to gluten free all made for a nice evening. About 10 minute walk from the Barcelona cathedral.
