It was such a wonderful experience that I have compelled to write it down at once! A very friendly staff welcomed us followed by such nice attention that made the whole dinner a delightful time. The food in all courses were just excellent in taste and presentation and the time couldn't be better. As for the Gaudi atmosphere do not... More

It’s hard to believe that recent reviewers Cartagia and shropshireron actually went to the same place as ourselves and others and I would say to readers, please don’t be deterred –it’s wonderful! We spent a blissful evening in the elegant surrounds of this unusual building, the history of which is clearly set out in the menu. It was everything we... More

ATTENTION GAUDI FANS- There is nothing to see Gaudi-esque inside the restaurant of Casa Calvet. Enjoy the facade of the building from outside and save your money...the restaurant is a very expensive tourist trap. We went for lunch at 1pm and were the only people in the whole place. That should have rang warning bells. There are no Gaudi architectural... More

We had read great reviews but weren't prepared for just how good it would be. Elegant dining room with great service and outstanding food. Our first night in Barcelona and we have booked again for our last. Simply perfect in every way. Small dining rooms off the main one if you want even more privacy.

Our visit to Casa Calvert was 10 years in the making. It’s rather sad then when the expectation and anticipation isn’t fully realised. We spent 200 Euro here and 250 in Cinc Sentis, the latter without complaint. So this review isn’t based on money but value and quality. Both somewhat lacking. We opted for the Chefs Tasting Menu. Described as... More

Chose Casa Calvet for our first night in Barcelona during our honeymoon. We decided to go with the Chef's Menu (Chef's choice) since we couldn't make up our minds because everything on the menu looked really good~ At EUR 70, we had 5 mains, 2 desserts, bread and water included, which was a steal considering the quality and amount of...

NO, if you need hearty or hefty portions, this won't be the place for you. BUT, if you savour delicious and dainty dishes, served in a beautiful setting, then book a table in advance now! Understated Gaudi decor. Particular recommendations: stuffed artichokes, red mullet and the delicate assortment of Spanish cheeses with a shot of tawny port. A special place... More

This place if very special. I went with colleagues and have to come back for a more romantic occasion! The setting is like going back in time to the 1940's Barcelona. The staff are classy and not at all pretentious. The food is gorgeous here. I had the very best of the best Jamon de Iberico to start, then enjoyed... More

Based on my research on TripAdvisor, I selected Casa Calvet as the best choice for our 15th wedding anniversary dinner. I was absolutely correct - this place is a great choice for a special occassion. I made my reservation online prior to leaving the U.S. and also corresponded with them via email regarding some special requests. Everything was perfect. We... More

My husband and I had booked ahead as a friend had recommended this place to us. My husband is an architect and wanted to experience first hand dining in a Gaudi designed room. We were there for the design, not the food, but were very pleasantly surprised by how good the food was and the service was also excellent. We... More
