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).

Really good food at an affordable price. We had the duck and salmon, which were both delicious. Waiters were a little stressed, and we had to wait a bit long, but it was worth the wait. Also, save room for dessert!

We concur with recent guests that this small restaurant a few blocks from the port beginning of La Rambla is a real find. Michel, the Belgian owner, started making his own ice cream from best fresh ingredients, and bought the restaurant three and a half years ago. The menu is a combination of good local ingredients and various European cuisines,... More

Was bored with the typical tapas found around the city so was happy when I tried the menu here. Each dish has a twist and it works,creating unique flavours you can't find anywhere else.I give them top marks for taking risks and will be back again when I get a craving for something a bit out of the ordinary.

Used trip advisor to find a decent restaurant for my girlfriends mums birthday and stumbled across Gilda's which had some great reviews. Lived up to the reviews, the waitress was very attentive and spoke perfect English. The food was amazing, wasn't sure what to expect from a Belgium Tapas fusion restaurant but exceeded expectations. The tapas was incredible. Would highly... More

The beef was gorgeous and even tho slightly pinker than I have it at home I ate every bit of it and would have it again. My other half had the lamb and loved it but... More

The food here was very good, the beef totally gorgeous and the potato bravas with sundried tomato and chilli was excellent. One problem was the service, just one guy running around like crazy and seemed quite stressed out doing everything, whilst we waited a long time to be served.The owner arrived later and was lovely and passionate about his food....

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience on tripadvisor. I am glad you liked the food so much. As you came on a weeknight and in low season, we didn't have a lot of reservations so we assumed the staff setting would be ok. However, more guests came in that night right from the street which slowed down a... More

We have arrived at night and immediately got serviced at bar while our table was prepared. Great drink, chat with happy people and we were off to our table. We tried several tapas and it was so difficult to say which one was the best. Definitely all are worth a try as they are based on traditional Spanish dishes yet... More

Food, service, overall - excellent! Combination of Belgian and Spanish Tapas. Quality and freshness of the food is outstanding. Generous portions and excellent presentation. Atmosphere is quiet and subdued (good IMO). Well worth the trip...
