4 Gats is not only a restaurant but a part of Barcelona's history. Having breakfast, lunch or dinner in 4 Gats will drive you into a travel to the nineteenth century when artists, intellectuals and bohemians like Picasso or Ramon Casas were hanging out here. Nowadays, their work and paints still hang on the wall. Besides, the building was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, one of the modernist catalan architects most recognized. The building, Casa Martí, maintain all the modernist elements as they were in at the end of the nineteenth. This cultural and historic experience comes with exceptional gastronomy. All the dishes are prepared with proximity products and cooked with all the care and passion by our chef. No doubt, 4 Gats is a unique experience in Barcelona.

We went to 4 Gats to see Picasso's menu. We were not expecting a great cuisine, but surprisingly the dishes were very good, as well the service.

This place is a great tapas and drinks spot. We had five different tapas and they were all excellent! The service was ok. This is the only place in Spain where we felt they were trying to turn the tables quickly. Our presence seemed to annoy the waitstaff.

This is a famous place were known artists and painters used to go. The food is ok, but nothing more. It's nice to sit and have a cup of coffee, but if you want to eat, I'll reccommend you to go somewhere else. It's always realtively crowded, and the waiters are usually very busy. It's nice to have seen, but.....

We came here on the recommendation of a local friend. The building used to be a known hangout for the likes of Picasso, Gaudi and Ruben Dario. The modernist style inside and outside alone makes it worth a visit. Live music certainly adds to the ambience. The staff is extremely friendly and very professional. They can accommodate large groups as... More

When we arrived there we was met with a rude attitude that there was no booking for 12 people. I showed the staff the confirmation email and they tried to fix up, but after waiting over 30 minutes we went to another place. I will never book here again with a large group.

We just had to experience the 4 cats. The ambience is wonderful and in the evening there was live music, but at a level where you could still talk. We went to drinks and decided to have some tapas as well (and you pay a little extra for this location).

This is more than a restaurant, it's a piece of art! And it's a matter of fact, since it's one of the 115 masterpieces of the "Ruta de Modernisme", a precious official guide through the treasures of Modernisme in Barcelona. The inside decoration is still like at the beginning of the XX century and the place has for sure atmosphere.... More

The food & service are all great. But it 's always full of people, better to make reservation in advance.
