Great lunch!

After checking out the Picasso museum, my lovely GF and I decided to hit this place for lunch. It was delicious! I had the steak medallions and a very nice salad with some house made vino tinto!

Opened in 1897 and inspired by Le Chat Noir from Paris. In 1899, at age 17, Picasso became a regular patron and had his first exhibition here. We went for lunch before embarking on our walking tour of the Barri Gòtic. The menu del día was 16€ for a starter, main course, dessert and wine. The food was excellent. A... More

Look this is one of those places you sort of need to tick off the list. Its history is impressive as is its decor. The lunch menu is cheap and cheerful and served in the bar. It's not the best meal you'll have in your lifetime but far from the worst either. The dining room at the back opens for... More

I was part of a large group that held a social dinner at 4 Gats. The menu prepared for us did not include a vegetarian main course, but the chef went out of his way to make an incredible meal for the few of us who didn't eat meat or fish. The appetizers, salad and main course of grilled veges... More

Busy, delightful, beautiful and the hang-out of Picasso and his friends. For some reason this restaurant is given tepid reviews in tourist books but I found it wonderful. Sitting at a table on the interior balcony overlooking the busy, buzzy main restaurant, I tucked into fine Catalan dishes such as a memorable plate of baked green peppers as well as... More

Just like "Didn't get very far", we too may have been greeted by the same "very rude male moron". We did not have a reservation and were told that we could only eat tapas. Well, Mr "very rude male moron" that is what we wanted!?!?! However, he proceeded to mock my partner's request when we she asked directions for the... More

I stumbled on this restaurant while walking to the Barcelona Cathedral. The tapas were good but the service could have been a little better. Not too expensive. Across the street is a little Indian/Nepal inspired jewelery store that was interesting.

Get the cochinillo, amazing! It is a little tough to find, but easy if you have GPS on your phone. Make sure you save the map on your phone for offline use just in case.

One of our least enticing stops in BCN. Just in for a light bite and a drink. Service was good and it has character. Food was just okay.

I must go to restaurant steeped in literary and art history. Building located in amongst the old cobble stone passageways of the old town area. Food was excellent and large serves.
