Description: 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).

My boyfriend and I spent a Friday night in May in this bar and loved it. The staff are awesome, the drinks exceptional and it really made our weekend in Barcelona. We promised the bar staff we'd write a review, sorry it's a few months late. But do spend time here, it's fantastic.

We made a reservation there because they had very high ranking on trip advisor and that’s what most reviewers were recommending, but that was not necessary. There were plenty of spaces and we were seated very promptly. Food was not bad, but definitely nothing to write home about. The steak was very bland, but the stew was very good. Decent... More

Ricardo, the fantastic guy behind the bar, makes the best sangria in Barcelona! It is really worth visiting this wonderful place. Such a great atmosphere and welcoming feeling!

We ordered the steak, tenderloin, desserts and drinks. We we're happy to eat there - nice atomosphere with background music. We had to wait a long time to get our food though (40 min.), and after they forgot/was a very long time to get us the menucard for dessert and later to pay. Though, when we asked again they we're...

Dear guest, Thank you for visiting us and trying a few items on our menu. In August it get's really very busy and since all food is being prepared on order, sometimes it takes longer than expected. Most of our guests understand this, especially when they actually taste the quality of the preparations. I am sorry if they have been... More

This restaurant has great fusion cuisine bringing together the Belgian cooking style and Mediterranean ingredients. We went for tapas and they were really delicious. The owner himself advised us on desserts and they also turned to be great. The service was fast and the staff were very friendly. I highly recommend it, especially if you are looking for something a... More

The place is small, and you may have to wait a little while for a table. The food and wine are good, and the prices are sensible. Located not fare from the center of Barcelona.

Was not impressed by this place. I always leave a tip but couldn't bring myself to do it on this occasion. The service was very poor. We were sat next to a dirty wall. Our food arrived before the wine. The food was ok, but nothing to get excited about. The bread from the stew was hard and stale. We... More

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your experience on tripadvisor. The first two weeks of August are probably the most hectic ones of the year and as the restaurant is small and busy, occasionally the service level can be under pressure, and this is what you perceived. The night you visited we had a stand in waitress (our fixed staff... More

Located in a busy pedestrian street in the old city, this small restaurant offers quality, good food and excellent service at a fair price, all this hard to find in this part of the city. I specifically loved the shrimps on curry ice cream, adventurous and excellent! Good wines. Went a couple of times here and was never disappointed.

We went to Gilda and had 2 fantastic tapas, the chviche and some shrimps. The main course duck was also realy good, mussels not so good. Over all the food meet our expectations. But the service could be so much better. Please, focus on service, clear the table and pour up the wine. Ola/Ingela

Dear guest, Thank you for visiting our restaurant and sharing your comments. On food I cannot add a lot as it is a very personal matter. What we know is that the vast majority of guests who had the mussels (including Belgians) just love them. On service, I agree that when it gets extremely busy, the service levels get under... More
