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).

Best lamb I have ever tasted.

Everything I saw in this place looked amazing. I had the olives (delicious), the shrimp (mouth wateringly tasty) and the rack of lamb!!! The sauce of unreal, the potato probably the best potato I've ever had and the lamb, phenomenal. And it's not very expensive at all.

We ate twice here on our three day trip - incredible value and some of the best and most exciting food I've ever had. High points were the crispy prawns with curry ice cream, the goats cheese with honey and walnuts, the foie gras (best I've ever had), the shrimp croquettes, the chocolate mousse and the crema catalana. House wine... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and we tried the paella - the offer was €15/head including sangria. This place is not a tourist trap and we will come again.

The waiters warned us that the service would be slow when we entered. An ominous start to a wonderful meal. The restaurant is great. They were out of a few items, but that only saved us from over eating. The carpaccio is an absolute must have. Belgian infused tapas. It's not how I would do it, but I'm not always... More

Me and my boyfriend booked to go here during our visit to Barcelona through a recommendation. I was not disappointed, the food we had was lovely, we thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a lovely romantic meal in a small, quiet restaurant (cocktails were rather strong though)

Standard tapas, good food, but a bit overpriced for what you get. Atmosphere is good, but definitely not a lounge bar as they say. Owner is very happy with his own restaurant.

Very small restaurant so please make a reservation. Off the beaten path so it's a little hard to find. Our taxi driver knew where it was though. It's worth going for the tapas. Our group ordered several dishes to share. Some of the group ordered steak. Wide variety of wine and beer to choose from. The staff was somewhat friendly... More

Had the most amazing diner with a group of 10. We started with some tapas which were all very tasty and perfectly prepared. I took the duck as a main course but also tried the lamb, the tuna and the chicken and they were all delicious. Definitely worth a try. Last but not least great service by Michiel.

Spent just over a week in Barcelona and stumbled across this bar restaurant on my first night. Had a range of tapas and cocktails and everything was exceptional. All food was well priced and high quality and the service and staff were second to none. Ate at a number of other restaurants nothing came close. Looking forward to coming back... More

We really enjoyed our evening here. We are from New Orleans and really enjoy food. This restaurant lived up to the reviews!! We enjoyed the food at absolutely fair prices. If you are on the fence on this place, jump over and enjoy. It made for a great last night in Barcelona for us!!!!!
